'Billy Has Been Coming Along Nicely For A While And Deserved His Chance'

28 October 2021

Confidence is building with Billy Sass-Davies after successful loan spell with Yeovil last season.

Defender Billy Sass-Davies ‘had been bubbling along nicely’ and deserved his recall for last weekend’s trip to Wycombe Wanderers according to boss David Artell.

The club’s Wales Under-21 international performed exceptionally well at Adams Park last weekend and was unlucky to be on the losing side following Wycombe’s stoppage time winner.

The former Academy graduate is certainly not guaranteed a start against MK Dons this weekend because Artell may alter his playing system and the more senior, Terell Thomas, represents stiff competition for a place.

Ahead of the weekend visit of Liam Manning’s Dons, the boss stated: “Billy has been bubbling along and has been doing that for a while now. He has gained experience on loan at Yeovil and been away with Wales which has only enhanced his confidence.

“He scored for Wales against Bulgaria which added to his confidence again, so he is heading in the right direction.

“He was very good again at Wycombe. We needed men to stand up to them and the barrage they provide and he did that. Billy was magnificent against Leeds (in the Carabao Cup) so I am surprised to see him knocking on the door? No not really because those type of performances have been coming.

He added: “I am sure he will have a few blips along the way. He is still young and learning the game in an important position, but he has been going along nicely. He continues to make progress and we are pleased with him.”
