Andy Williams is looking to build on his first goal of the season as he tries to force his way into the Rovers starting XI.
The 31-year-old scored the equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Grimsby Town in the Checkatrade Trophy, and says he is hoping his hard work pays off in the not too distant future.
“It’s my first start of the season so it’s nice to get the goal, I’m feeling good about myself and I know I’ve got to be patient to get a run in the side,” he said.
“This is probably the first time in my career when I’ve not started a league game four games in, so I will just keep working hard so that I take my chances when they come.
“It’s been a totally different season to what I’m used to, I got injured at the end of pre-season which was really frustrating but it’s a long season and I know I’ll be fresh when it matters.”
Williams was taken off of the transfer list by manager Darren Ferguson at the start of pre-season, and he says he never wanted to leave the club after settling down in South Yorkshire.
“I’ve proven to the gaffer how hard I work which resulted in me being taken off the transfer list, I know it won’t be easy to force my way into the team as we have a lot of good strikers,” he added.
“I never wanted to leave, a number of good options came up but I’m happy here, my family are settled and I really enjoy living in Doncaster.
“I’m in the last year of my contract so I’ve got to see how things go, my first aim is to get in the side and then other things will take care of themselves.”
