SWINDON TOWN: Williams can't wait for new season to begin

ANDY Williams cannot wait for the new season to begin after spending eight months on the sidelines through injury.

The Swindon Town striker is back to full fitness following a cruciate ligament injury and, having played a large role during pre-season, the 27-year-old is counting down the days to next Saturday’s League One curtain raiser against Scunthorpe United.

And while he hasn’t found the target over the past month, the former Yeovil man says that he has no concerns over his knee.

“I’m desperate to start the season, I really am,” Williams said. “It is the hardest thing that I have had in my career so far.

“Missing eight months has been hard - it has been frustrating watching games but thankfully the team that we have got here - the fitness coach, the assistant, the manger - have all been good to me.

“It is a mental problem as well as physical problem when you are sat on the sidelines doing nothing - I can’t wait for next weekend.”

Any fears over the knee injury were quickly brushed aside on the opening day of pre-season training, as Raphael Branco welcomed Williams back into the fold.

“My first training session back, Rafa smashed me within a minute, so I knew straight away that the knee was going to stand up,” the striker said. “Then after I had a little word with him he gave me another a few minutes later.

“It was nice in way, I know that he didn’t mean it, but it was nice to know that the knee was fine and I could relax and not worry about it.”

Williams also said that he is relishing the chance of being one of the leaders of the Town side despite admitting it is something that has not come naturally to him.

“Being the oldest player by about four years at 27 is something that has been forced upon me but it is something that I relish,” he said.

“With Nath (Thompson) as captain and Wes (Foderingham) as another experienced player, the experience is spread out through team.

“Although that it is a very young side, there is enough lads here who have played enough league games to know what we need to do.”

The striker is looking forward to developing his relationship with Michael Smith.

“Being the experienced one of the two, it is about building up an understanding, what his game is and what he likes to do,” Williams said. “I think we are getting there.

“From a personal point of view the goals haven’t come yet, I don’t that I have even had a shot in the last two games, which is frustrating.

“It is something that we are working on in creating more chances for each other and I would like to think that we are starting to build up a relationship - hopefully it will blossom throughout the season.”

I don't think it was the few on here who affected his confidence - I believe it was the role he was given which didn't suit him. With Smith now as the middle man (hopefully too his ball control has improved ) they may develop as a good partnership.

What's concerning is Williams has failed to score against multiple non-league opposition, and when both strikers play with backs to goal, Swindon lack the penetration as the wing backs are defensive and not wingers. Swindon would be better to play a fast striker off the shoulder of the defenders, looking for knock downs and through balls. At least that would cause opposition defenders to turn to their own goal, rather than facing up 2 big men neither looking to break through.

In both Eastleigh and Southampton games, Williams has looked out of shape. An early goal this season might fire him up and give him the confidence he needs. 5 league games without a goal, and who knows what will be going on in his head.

Its going to be vital that Williams gets off to a strong start as he doesn't appear to be the kind of guy that can drag himself back up if he gets down. The evidence we have from his one full season for us supports this, I would say. If he does get his tail up, however, I think there is a twenty goal striker in there. About time he realised his potential

Not seen any friendlies so not sure how much game time Wilma has had. No shots at goal in last two games says it all - he has to make things happen and I hope they've been working with him on his atrocious 121 record v the keeper he's shocking at that.

He is coming back from the worst injury a footballer can get ,he will need a few games to shape up.

Ah, but no shots at goal is at least as likely to indicate a lack of chances provided by teammates as a lack of creating them for himself. I haven't seen any friendlies either so am no better informed!

Yes he is returning from a terrible injury, it will take a bit of time.

On his day WIlliams should be a handful for L1 defences.

More concerning at this point is the lack of creativity. are not Even the great Messi can't score a goal if he has no shots in 2 games. It seems quite clear to all that we're missing Pritchard but I haven't seen any talk of a direct replacement, seems we are looking at 2 forwards and defenders Stephens and Smith but no skilful player to replace Pritchard. The Nathan's out wide in a 3-5-2 won't fix that gap as their level of trickery, crossing and shooting is not in the same league.

Only managed to see one (Eastleigh away) and picked probably the worst of the bunch. On that showing it was hard to have a pop at Williams, as we created literally nothing.

Not a fan of picking out players for individual criticism, I know you'll have a player that stands out occasionally as having a nightmare but it's not that often. When we play badly, as when we play well, it's normally a group effort. If you've got a team playing as a team, playing for eachother, you don't need world beaters in every position - a team needs to be greater than the sum of it's parts, not less - hence why the England team still struggles. Some great individual talent but it's a team game at the end of the day.

Smith as a "a very poor version of ranger" is a tad unfair. Ranger came with loads of baggage from a premiership club, was a gamble that backfired but undoubtedly was a fantastic target man - the way he held the ball up and got kicked around but never reacted, was brilliant to watch. Unfortunately his attitude of the pitch was the antithesis of that on, and he was rightly kicked out the door (no pun intended).

Smith on the other hand came from non-league. He's nowhere near as polished a player but then we wouldn't expect him to be really. He works very hard, keeps his nose clean, and his goal return isn't terrible by any means. He could well be a Benson type centre forward with a better return if we played to get balls in the box for him more often. As it stands he has to play with his back to goal and doesn't have the same skill in holding the ball up as Ranger. But Considering where he's come from I think we've got a decent player there.

Williams I'm still undecided on after all his time here. Could start well and have a cracking season, could struggle, get injured, who knows.

Newbury mike - for me Nathan T is one I'd be ok to lose (for sensible money of course) his discipline is still appalling and last season he looked half the player he was before. Not vocal enough to be captain and his form tends to be brilliant or awful.
Agree Jock I would swap him for Nicky Ajose as I am sure Barthram or Byrne could cover.

i can't see us getting many goals at all this season until we get new strikers in, storey scores the odd goal here and there (the villa goal helped no-end with his reputation) but is no real threat, shame williams couldnt stay at yeovil, his pace has gone and can't finish to save his life, smith is the only very-half decent striker but he's just a very poor version of ranger. we need strikers ASAP. Bring on the negative score - whatever. Our strike force is going no-where at present. Good job we have a midfield that can try and cover them
Finishing is a good point, Williams has a lot of good qualities but a finisher he is not, and this is impossible to coach. You either have that instinct in front of goal or not, Williams isn't going to acquire it at this stage of his career.

Well i hope he proves a few of you wrong and scores goals like he did for Yeovil a few seasons ago.Then maybe he will get a little respect and the silly name calling will stop.
