Midfielder Ryan Woods has spoken about the appointment of new head coach Dean Smith and also Saturday’s game against MK Dons.

Speaking to the Official Site in his pre game press conference, Woods explained that he felt building on Lee Carsley’s work, Smith could only improve the club further over the coming months.

Speaking after the new gaffer held his first training session since taking his new job on, Woods said.

‘Dean`s first training session was what I expected. I spoke to Tom Bradshaw at Walsall the other day and asked him a couple of questions but it was what I expected. He is very lively and loves what he does. It is a great appointment for the club as he likes to play exactly how we like to play and it is only going to improve this club as a whole. He put across what he wants from us and how he wants us to play today and now we have to look forward to the game on Saturday and hopefully bring the three points. You always want to impress a manager whether you are in the team or not. You have to do your best in training and then Dean will pick the team. Some players may see it as a clean slate with the manager but you are always focusing on being the best that you can. Whether it is a new manager or an old manager you just want to improve.’

Having only come to the club this summer himself following his move from promoted League One side Shrewsbury Town, the 21 year old has featured in the last eleven matches for the club, and he feels he’s settling in nicely now.

‘I feel like I have settled in really well and I am at home now. I have settled into the apartment that we have got and I feel really comfortable around the place. I settled in quickly off the pitch so then it was a case of getting to know some of the boys that I didn`t know at the time. I feel like I have gained a lot of friends here now and I am really settled in. On the pitch I feel that I am growing in confidence in every game. I am looking to improve with every training session and every game that I play. Hopefully there are still bigger and better things to come from me.’

With MK Dons up next, he went on to say.

‘Milton Keynes Dons will look to play a similar way to us. I have played against them a few times when I was with Shrewsbury and they play good football. It should be a very good footballing game to watch but we go there with the confidence that we can beat pretty much any team in this league. We are a good footballing team and it suits us when teams play the same way against us. We like to play attacking football and so do they. Hopefully we can catch them on the break a few times and score a few goals.’

The club also remind fans that increased security at the ground is still in operation, and request all fans turn up 30 minutes early if not more.
