Hiwula: The whole squad is prepared to fight for the win

29 March 2018

Jordy Hiwula believes the squad are pulling in the same direction ahead of Fleetwood’s trip to AFC Wimbledon on Good Friday.

The Huddersfield loanee is Town’s top scorer in the league with eight goals, and netted a crucial strike in last week’s victory at Rochdale.

The 23-year-old spoke to the media on Thursday at Poolfoot Farm, and is confident his side can make it three wins on the bounce and climb further up the table.

“Everyone’s ready to fight,” said Hiwula.

“In training everyone’s working hard and trying to impress the new head coach and keep us in the division.

“I feel like we’ve been playing really well, the starters and the sub that have come on as well, we’ve all been chipping in and doing our bit.

“Everyone is buzzing and raring to go. We all can’t wait for the game tomorrow, we’re just going to try and keep this form up and keep pushing.”

Fleetwood are unbeaten in five games, keeping three clean sheets in a row, and looking for a third straight victory on Friday.

“Every game we go into we have to try and win,” added Hiwula.

“We feel like we’ve been doing well in recent weeks, so we just have to keep going.

“Every game is different and has its own challenges. We’ve got a different challenge tomorrow and hopefully we can go there and pick up some points.”

AFC Wimbledon currently sit three points behind Fleetwood in 19th and Hiwula anticipates a difficult game.

“We’re expecting them to be hard to beat. We’ve watched them, and we think they’re a good team.

“They’re in and around us as well so we can go there and try to get something from the game.”

On a personal level, Hiwula has made an impact from the bench in each of Town’s last two wins, with a goal against Rochdale the highlight. The forward is hoping he can work his way into the side from the off.

“For me whether I can get 10 minutes on the pitch or two minutes, I just need to try and show what I can do to get into the starting 11.

“The team’s doing really well at the moment, so it’ll be harder to get into the team, but I’ve just got to keep working hard to try and get back into the team.

“It’s good to keep you on your toes, everyone knows that they don’t have a starting place in the team, it’s good that everyone is training well and working hard day in and day out to get into the starting line-up.”
