Luke Williams has stated the importance of finishing as high as possible in the League One table and also added it’s crucial to maintain the standards which have been set throughout the campaign.

“Obviously we want to win every game that is left and give ourselves the best opportunity to finish as high as we can,” he told The Iron PlayerHD.

“It’s up to us to win them and, if other teams drop points around us, you never know where we could finish. So it’s important that we do keep going, and arriving into every game wanting to win it.”

Williams says last Saturday’s narrow defeat against Bradford City was tough to take, given the chances which the away side created.

He feels the 1-0 scoreline wasn’t a fair reflection of how the game went, but gave the Bantams credit for the way in which they went about the match.

“It was a disappointing one for us, because a win would have kept our real play-off hopes alive, and we had our chances to come away with something from the game as well," he stated.

“They're a good side and that’s what they do, they’re hard to play against, they’re in your face and they’re direct. They got the goal which they wanted and they then held onto the win they wanted, which was hard for us to take.

“They made the changes (bringing on James Hanson and Steven Davies) and they brought them on to do exactly what they did, and he (Davies) scored with his very first touch.

“It was a big blow for us, considering we held them in the first half, we had our chances and we were looking to kick on really in the second half.”

The midfielder spoke too of how important it is for the Iron to finish the season as strongly as they can.

Second-placed Burton Albion visit Glanford Park this Saturday, in a game Williams believes is huge for the Brewers’ promotion aspirations.

Williams stated: “They have dropped a few points so it’ll be even more important for them to come here and give a good account of themselves.

“They’ve still got everything to play for and every one of these last six games will feel like a cup final for them, because it’s massive for them to be around where they are, with them aiming for automatic promotion.”
