Williams Hails Goal Trail

30 December 2015

Front man happy with his form over the festive period.

Andy Williams was happy with the conclusion to 2015 and is hopeful of continuing his sparkling recent form in to the New Year.

Williams has turned a corner in his Doncaster career and has scored 9 goals in his last 11 outings, having previously only notched three goals in 19 appearances.

“It’s been a good year for me, all in all, with the birth of my first child and a lot of goals to go with it so I can’t complain with how the year has gone,” said the 29 year old front man.

“Hopefully there’s some more goals and a good time with Doncaster Rovers to come.

“It was nice to get back to winning ways (in the 2-1 win over Oldham Athletic) and get on the scoresheet especially after a disappointing performance on Boxing Day.”

Williams – who was deployed as a lone striker in the victory against the Latics – expects a tougher examination against play off chasing Southend United at Roots Hall on Saturday but said Rovers have raised their standards.

“I think we’ve set the bar quite high, I think the lads were still quite disappointed with how some things went (against Oldham),” he said.

“It’s a tough place to go, I think I’ve picked up a result there before but I know I’ve had tough time there on many occasions. It’ll be a tricky one travelling down there on New Year’s Day but hopefully it will be another three points.

“You don’t get much of a Christmas or a New Year as a footballer and that’s the way it goes sometimes so we won’t change our preparation a lot, we’ll get our heads down and train and travel down to Southend ready for another game.

“Obviously it (playing as a lone striker) different but something I’ve done a lot of times before and we’ve played the exact formation a lot last season so it was something I was used to and obviously it’s worked very well for us and it’s another option for us if we need it later on in the season or maybe the next game.”
