George Thomson pre Stevenage - Hopefully we can make it seven wins in nine

5 March 2021

Watch George Thomson's pre-match interview as the midfielder discusses his game as captain, shifting to centre midfield and looking to make it seven wins out of nine come Saturday…

Thomson on being made captain for the game against Grimsby…

I was very proud of that. It was the first time for me that I've ever had the armband. The Gaffer rang me on the Friday before the game to let me know but yeah I was delighted.

To be fair I didn't do anything differently. Falks is the captain so I knew it wasn't going to be for the rest of the season. It was nice but Falks is captain so that's that.

On playing more centrally...

I've enjoyed it a lot yeah. It's a little bit different and I've had to learn quite quickly about the different position and the different way of playing. 

I'm in the heart of it in the middle of the pitch. The way the games are at the minute with the pitches being that time of year, games can be scrappy.

I feel like I'm involved all the time whereas on the wing there can be periods that pass you by. At the minute, I feel like I'm having to concentrate all the time, doing the right thing, in the right place, at the right time.

I've got to make sure I'm switched on whether we have the ball or not. It's different but I'm learning and there's still a lot to learn, hopefully, it carries on.

On the team's recent form...

We're doing brilliantly. I think the new lads from January have added to the squad and brought the freshness that everyone has been talking about. 

I think now we're starting to see the results, so we're in great form at the minute and hopefully, we can carry that on into Saturday and keep the momentum going.

We're going to approach Saturday like every other game, trying to get three points which is two more than in the game at home. Hopefully, we can make it seven wins in nine.
