Williams post-Colchester

2 November 2015

Forward's frustrations lifted with the help of fans and new manager Ferguson.

Andy Williams thanked the Doncaster fans for their patience after ending a barren run in front of goal during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Colchester United.

The 29 year old ended a six game streak without a goal with an emphatic second half finish.

“Its been a frustrating few weeks for me personally but it was nice to get on the scoresheet and get a much needed win for the boys,” Williams said.

“I thought we massively deserved it. We dominated the game and it could have been more. We showed what we’re capable of and why we probably should be higher than we are.

“I think they (the supporters) have stuck by me and it was nice to get the applause and the song sung towards me so it was good.”

Williams, who arrived in the summer from Swindon Town having netted 22 goals for the Robins last term, hailed the positive influence of manager Darren Ferguson who paired him with Nathan Tyson for the first time.

“I think he (Ferguson) has been a lot more positive and he’s got a mentality around the place where he makes everyone a bit more on edge,” he said.

“The way he’s got us playing is positive and everyone in the team knows their roles and what we’ve got to do.

“For the strikers, he’s got them (the midfield) feeding us. For me, the chances haven’t been coming so I haven’t been that frustrated.

“The only frustration has been my overall performances. I put in a good performance though and the goal was a bonus.

“I was happy with it (the partnership with Tyson). I realised it could be me and him a lot when I came here, I thought we were lively and happy with how it worked.”
