Knott’s double mission

20 August 2013

Midfielder Billy Knott has set himself two main targets during his loan spell with the Wanderers.

He said: "It's about experience, games and trying to push the team up the league and help the team as best I can, to try to get us up the league where we belong.

The England U20 international, who arrived on a month's youth loan from Sunderland on Tuesday, was quick to point out his desire to help the Chairboys climb the Sky Bet League 2 table as well as play more first-team football.
"With the history of the club, it's great to be here and be a part of it. The stadium is massive and it's good to come down and get the experience of being here.

"The manager said the lads are good to get on with and everyone knows the history of Wycombe. Hopefully we can make it the future as well and try and push us up the league.

He added: "The gaffer has been good. I know him as a player here and a legend at Wycombe. Hopefully I can work hard for him and the team."
Wanderers are the third club Knott has spent time on loan at following impressive spells at AFC Wimbledon in 2011/12 and Woking
last season. He scoring eight times in 20 appearances for Woking 

and scooped AFC Wimbledon’s Young Player of the Year, despite only joining midway through the campaign. He said: "Wimbledon
was my first club, going into the big world rather than kids' football. We were down at the bottom of the table so it was a bit of a struggle, but it was good fun. "I enjoyed Woking
massively. We got a few good results and the team was good. Hopefully I can make another chapter here and push on and have a good season.
Asked about his style of play, he replied: "I like to think I give 100 per cent to win the game and work hard to win the ball back when we've given it away. I like to think I've got a bit of quality on the ball and can pick a pass and hopefully score a few goals as well.

"Playing off the strikers is my favourite role. Centre-midfield is more likely to be where I'm played here.
"When I was a bit younger I liked Joe Cole. He was a great player on the ball and worked really hard off the ball. I like Paul Scholes as well - a playmaker but can work hard as well."

Knott could make his Blues bow at neighbours Oxford United at the weekend.

He said: "I've heard it's a bit of a derby this week - a couple of people have mentioned it. They are top of the table so if we go there and get a result it'll be great, and good for team morale.
Billy will wear the No.28 shirt.

"Hopefully we stick together, work hard this week and push on for a brilliant result and hope the fans come out to support us."
