Williams Keeping Cool

16 November 2015

Andy Williams was allowing others to get carried away with his latest goalscoring exploits.

Williams scored for the third game in succession and his fifth minute strike against Blackpool on Saturday set the wheels in motion for a third straight 2-0 win.

“I think people can make too much of runs whether they’re good or bad,” he said.

“I keep a level head myself; when I wasn’t scoring I wasn’t missing loads of chances.

“I missed a couple (against Blackpool) which disappoint me but I scored one and its nice to keep the run going.

“The key to scoring goals is to not get carried away with the lows and the highs – you guys (the media) are a lot more positive than you were a few months ago – I’m not going to get carried away, I’m going to keep working hard.”

Williams certainly isn’t resting on his laurels, however, and highlighted that Rovers strength in depth could be the key to success this season.

“We’ve got good options coming off the bench and it keep the lads who are playing on their toes and they have to keep producing otherwise they’ll lose their place in the team,” he said.

“I think we all knew that the group we had here we should be higher up than we were but he (Darren Ferguson) has instilled that belief and got us playing.

“The formation has changed and its working well for us at the moment, we’ve worked hard on it and we’ve got plenty more in the locker if we need it.

“We think we’ve got good striking options. Me and him (Nathan Tyson) have proved to be a handful at the moment for opposition defences.”
