Ryley: We've come together as a team

Versatile loanee feels a part of our group

26 October 2022

Ryley Towler has hailed the impact of skipper Alex Woodyard which has helped us pick up four points in less than a week since his return.

Versatile Bristol City loanee Ryley has been deployed in midfield as well as in defence since his deadline day move to the Cherry Red Records Stadium. He acknowledged the difference that our captain has made with his return from injury having sparked four points from a possible six.

"He has been magnificent for us," said Ryley, after Woody replaced the injured Lee Brown just before half-time at home to Crewe.

We've all come together as a team. I thought the boys were brilliant. We played our football in the first-half and maybe went away from it a bit in the second half, but I thought we did really well. I’m loving it! I’ve settled in and the boys have been magnificent with me.

“With their goal, first we’ve got to stop the cross, then it’s come back across, and I’ve got to do better for the header. There were a lot of things wrong with it, but I’m sure we’ll go over it again ahead of Saturday.”

Ryley also praised the recent contributions of forwards Ayoub Assal and Josh Davison, showing his support for the latter, who failed to convert a second-half penalty last night.

“Ayoub is brilliant,” said Ryley. “He’s got so much talent and if he keeps going, who knows what he can achieve? He’s a quality player.

“Even the top players miss penalties. Josh won us the game on Saturday. We’ll go back into training, look forward to Harrogate at home, and hopefully we’ll take all three points then. The fans were brilliant, as they were on Saturday when they travelled in their numbers as well.”
