Star striker says Rovers are solid as a group and can gauge progress against high flying Cov.Andy Williams has said that Saturday’s trip to face Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena will give a good indication of how Rovers are performing under Darren Ferguson.
Rovers have picked up nine points from the last available twelve and a win over the table topping Sky Blues would cap a profitable November.
“Tuesday (a 3-0 win over Chesterfield) was a good night for us and I thought we produced a really good performance from start to finish and we dominated the game.
“There’s a lot of confidence in the camp going in to an important game against Coventry on the weekend.
“I think right now it’s the toughest test you can get in League One, they’re top of the league and looking a really good outfit.
“It will be a good test for us at the weekend to go there and see exactly where we are in terms of league standings and I think it will be important to put in a performance and hopefully get a result.”
While Williams has been firing on all cylinders in front of goal – notching five goals in his last five games – the Rovers rear-guard has been equally ruthless and kept their opposition scoreless on four occasions over the same period.
“I’m quite a positive person if I can be, I don’t think I’ve ever dipped massively,” Williams said of his season to date.
“Obviously the goals have started coming but before that my chances weren’t there so now I’m getting plenty of chances and the goals keep coming. I have a strong belief in my ability that if I get chances, I’ll score goals.
“We’re working hard together as a unit now to keep clean sheets and I think the defenders have stepped up to the plate as well.
“Obviously we’ve added a few players in there and changed formation slightly and I think all of these things have helped and added to the fact that we’re a more solid team as a group, not just the back four and the goalkeeper, we’re all working together to keep a clean sheet.”
