Will on Bristol Rovers test
Will Antwi on the return of Curtis and his Dons career so far
Will Antwi has saluted Curtis Osano’s impact and compared the full-back’s return to the equivalent of signing a new player.
Speaking to Dons Player, experienced defender Will believes he has struck up a good understanding with Yado Mambo in the centre of defence and the former Wycombe Wanderers skipper has been hugely impressed with Curtis Osano’s return after injury.
“I have only played three games with Yado, but with every match we are gaining a greater understanding with each other,” he said. “We are getting there and the whole team is starting to gel for our new manager. We have finally got our uniform way of playing and we need to carry that into the next game and hopefully we can get positive results now. Every new manager has their own unique ways of doing things and it has been interesting so far – I am really enjoying it.
“It is such a boost to have Curtis back as he is a very good player. He is solid and is an attacking full-back, who is more than capable. It is almost like having a new player so it is a good welcome back for Curtis.”
Ghanaian international Will, who turned 30 years of age on Friday, is a no-nonsense defender and is far from daunted by any of the challenges that League 2 football brings.
But he accepts that Bristol Rovers will present tough opposition tonight after their win against Torquay United on Saturday.
“As a team we have to prepare for all the threats that Bristol Rovers are going to bring,” he added. “It does not matter if they are a big club or who their manager because we have to produce a big performance and get the three points. We just need to keep progressing, improving as a team, and raising the profile of this club.”
