Star striker hits sweet sixteen for season and is focussed on Crewe test.Andy Williams has said that Rovers are still in with “a fighting chance” after he put the seal on a 2-0 win over Coventry with his 16th goal of the campaign.
While Rovers’ League One future hangs in the balance, the 29 year old’s return to goalscoring ways could prove pivotal.
“Its good, it’s nice to have two goals in three now but it’s more important that we won,” he said.
“I think we’ve been performing well of late and not got the wins we wanted but we’re keeping ourselves in the mix and in with a fighting chance; that’s all we can do.
“There’s lots of clichés that come out at this time of year but we’re now in a mini-league and we’ve done what we had to do and now have to do that again at Crewe next Saturday.
“I felt I owed the lads one, I had almost the exact same chance at Chesterfield in the week and I didn’t quite get in line with the ball. Thankfully it went in and helped us towards three points.”
Williams was defiant amid the threat of relegation as Rovers look to avoid a similar fate which Saturday’s opponents Crewe have already suffered.
“People probably don’t appreciate that there’s a lot at stake here for the players as well,” he said.
“All the fans care and have a passion for the club more than anyone but these are our livelihoods and I think everyone gets hit by relegation and none more so than us and we want this as much as anyone and hopefully we’re starting to show that on the pitch now.
“If anything it (Crewe’s relegation) will make it harder; they’ve got nothing to play for and we’ve got to make sure that we perform how we have done lately and the result takes care of itself.”
