"It's all about the points now"

Dutch winger on importance of final matches and first season in English football

Enzio Boldewijn knows how significant the final eight games of the season are as the Reds look to push up the table between now and the end of the season.

With the visit of Leyton Orient on Saturday signalling the start of the final stretch throughout the final few months of the campaign, the former Almere City man knows the importance of finishing the campaign strongly.

"It’s vital we pick up wins between now and May, we don’t belong where we are in the table," insisted the midfielder.


"We’ve played well in matches not got the results that we felt we deserved, and people around us are winning.

 

"It’s not necessarily all about good football now – it’s all about the points and we need to dig in."


The aforementioned final eight games will represent the closing of Enzio's first season in English football - and he reflected on his first year with the Reds fondly.

 

"I will know all the grounds, know the sorts of styles and what crowds to expect now," he continued.


"The crowds here are miles ahead of Holland, in the top divisions there you have some good atmospheres but once you move down the leagues not so much.

 

"Whereas here in England at all levels the grounds are packed and it’s noisy."


Since arriving last May, the Dutchman has resided in nearby Three Bridges, and he was keen to thank the management and staff at the football club for helping him settle on his arrival during last summer.


"I live close by but at the start it was difficult. But everyone at the football club, Dermot, Matt and everyone helped me to get through that.

 

"Now I’m used to the area because of all the help they gave me and I want to thank them for that.

 

"Me and Kaby have become very close too – I see him like my little brother even though he’s older than me!

 

"We are good friends and talked a lot when he first arrived and I helped him to move into his new house recently. That’s what friends do and it’s good to see him getting time on the pitch.

 

"We’re similar personalities – we like to dance and have the same taste in music, so it’s a good thing."
