Luke Williams disappointed with his team's lack of fear

“There was not enough fear in the second half and we are playing against really good teams and in this instance a really good coach who is coming up with solutions to our threats during the game with one player that you can never take your eye off in Troy Deeney.

“For me, the circumstances were different to the Sutton game but the idea is the same because we will try to take something that we didn’t like and learn from that. We’re learning that you can’t take any chances in this division so I hope we use that game as an opportunity to improve rather than treat it like a threat to our momentum.

“The sooner that we get the mentality that we are playing every single game for 90 minutes with the same intensity and mindset throughout, and we have prepared our minds and bodies correctly, the better we are going to be.

“We’re going up against another ambitious team with really good players with a manager that has coached at a much higher level and has experience with a brilliant game plan prepared for us.

“We have to be prepared to go and play our best game and not feel we can relax a little bit, that is never going to be the case. We had that mentality in the National League, but some players if they were completely honest will say in some games after half-an-hour they were in cruise control and we won’t ever be able to get away with that at this level now.”
