'If It's Football, It's Vital'

U`s Boss Praises Goal Hero

Geraint Williams was quick to praise U`s goal hero Johnnie Jackson after the in-form midfielder netted his third goal of the week, as Williams` men look to avoid the drop.

The former Tottenham Hotspur trainee latched on to Scott Vernon`s clever lay-off to fire a ferocious half-volley beyond Boaz Myhill but, Frazier Campbell denied the U`s the chance to move out of the bottom three with a 64th minute equalizer.

Williams told the EADT: "Johnnie has great technical ability. He said it might be another 20 years before he scored another great goal with his right foot, after the Preston winner, but he's done it just four days later! It was a fantastic strike."

The U's boss also reiterated, once again, how his side need to turn draws into wins: "Once again I'm delighted with the performance, but disappointed with the result. We need to turn these one-pointers into three points.'

'We had chances to kill off the game at 1-0, but then Dean Gerken has also pulled off two great saves, once in first-half injury-time (from Ryan France) and then right at the death from Wayne Brown. I thought that Wayne was going to pop up with the winner, but that would have been harsh on us."

"I'm very satisfied with the display, but not the result," he added, as he prepares his side for the visit of high-flying Bristol city next weekend.
