Adams – Ben’s brilliance and Sam stays

Manager Micky Adams hailed hat-trick hero Ben Williamson and confirmed that keeper Sam Johnson will keep his place in the side.

Following the 6-2 win over Hartlepool, Adams said: “You shouldn’t underestimate that [the hat-trick] as a feat. I am delighted for him, I am always pleased when I see a centre-forward score goals because if they don’t score they think they are not contributing to the team.

“But we all know with Ben’s performances that there are other aspects to his game. He is the one that goes over the top and stretches defences. He has got three good goals and that will do him the world of good.”

He has got three good goals and that will do him the world of good…

Sam Johnson was beaten by a long-range shot in the game, but Adams says the youngster will keep his place commenting: “There are aspects to Sam’s game that he needs to improve on, but he is a young goalkeeper. Was I the finished article at 21? No I wasn’t, but I had to learn quickly.

“Sam will be disappointed with the goal, but I don’t think I should be making changes just because of one goal.”
