ANDY Williams does not think Swindon Town’s confidence will be knocked by only picking up one point from their last two games.
Town dominated Tuesday night’s draw against Gillingham and Saturday’s loss with Crawley in terms of possession and attempts at goal.
Mark Cooper said he was disappointed with the results but Williams does not believe the team’s faith in themselves has taken a hit.
Williams scored his first Town goal since notching in the opening round of the League Cup last season as a late own goal forced by Raphael Branco earned Town a point at Gillingham and after the game, the striker spoke of the belief amongst the players.
“I don’t think we lack confidence, we know our game plan, we worked on it all pre-season, all last season, everyone knows their positions and role in the team,” he said.
“I think that show we’re so well-drilled in keeping the ball. We’ve just got to iron out a few little errors.
“I felt we dominated the last two away games and we’ve only got a point from them, but we probably should have had six, it would have been a lot worse having no points than one.”
Williams missed the majority of last season with a cruciate ligament injury he sustained in training whilst on loan at Yeovil Town and the 28-year-old was clearly delighted to be back amongst the goals on Tuesday night.
Despite the high quality of his strike, Williams admitted afterwards he was not overly bothered how he scored, as long as he was on the scoresheet.
“I was obviously delighted, I didn’t really care how it came and to come to the way it did it was quite a nice goal.
“When you put a spin on it like ‘it’s been a year’, it sounds terrible but considering I’ve been injured for nine months and this is my first start back, I was quite happy that I’ve scored in basically in my first game back.”
