THERE is no doubt in Lawrence Vigouroux’s mind that head coach Luke Williams is the right man to steer Swindon Town away from the League One drop zone.
With just four games remaining, starting with this afternoon’s visit of AFC Wimbledon, Vigouroux and the rest of the Town squad and coaching staff remain confident that they can do what it takes to haul themselves to safety.
Despite a run of three games unbeaten against stiff opposition, Williams remains in the firing line from large sections of Town supporters when it comes to pointing blame for the club’s current predicament.
However, Vigouroux has come out with an unprompted defence of the County Ground chief, who he believes will give them every chance to succeed in the final two weeks of the campaign.
“The manager here is exceptional with telling us what to do and how to see the pictures on the pitch,” he said.
“We have got someone who is coaching us brilliantly and in my whole life, I don’t think I have had the attention to detail that the manager here has.
“He is someone that I really enjoy working with and he always gives us the right information and the right tools to go forward and try to win games.”
However, Vigouroux knows not to underestimate an AFC Wimbledon side who travel to Wiltshire today with no pressure on their shoulders as they sit comfortably in midtable in League One.
“I feel that those type of teams are the most dangerous because they have got nothing to play for,” he added.
“They can do what they like and if you go a goal up, they care of course because no one wants to lose, but I don’t think a loss is as key if we are playing a team at the top or at the bottom.
“They must dread playing us because we have got something to play for and we have just got to keep going.
“AFC Wimbledon will be a tough game, they have got good players and we have just got to keep this momentum going.”
