SWINDON TOWN: Williams insists Town have more in the tank
SWINDON Town may still be unbeaten in 2013 but striker Andy Williams says the Robins have yet to find their very best form.
Town have four wins and three draws from their seven League One fixtures since the turn of the year, scoring 14 times and conceding just twice in the process.
Yet despite that phenomenal record, Williams remains unconvinced that he and his teammates are achieving the performance levels that he hopes will help propel them into the Championship.
“I think we’ll all agree there’s more to come from us and that’s the exciting thing. We’re unbeaten this year and yet there’s probably more to come from everyone,” he said.
“I think there’s an undercurrent, if we can get it out from us, to be a bit more positive amongst each other. If we can start believing then we can do something special like the lads did who were here last season.”
While Williams is happy that he and the rest of the Swindon squad have coped admirably with limited resources of late, the forward said an influx of new faces would spur the rest of the team on for the remainder of the campaign.
“There’s not as much pressure as there was before coming from the sidelines and off the bench but we’ve still got a good squad and more than enough capability to bring people off the bench and win the game, like we did at Colchester,” he said.
“You don’t tend to bring people in to sit on the bench so the people coming in will be straight into the team.
“It does put a little more pressure on us.
“You know that waiting in the wings there could be more players on the way so you know you have to be on your game so that if anyone else comes in you’re not the one making way for them.”
Williams’ former side Yeovil have won seven out of seven to haul themselves into the play-off picture recently, and the 26-year-old can see the promotion race starting to hot up.
“They (Yeovil) are one of the in-form sides in the league at the moment. I think Bournemouth have got to be the other.
“There’s a few teams who have come with a good late run in there and there’s a couple near the top that are starting to slip away as well.
“It’s all about momentum at this stage of the season and Yeovil have certainly got some of that at the moment.
“Hopefully we’ll have some of that by the time we come to play them in a few weeks time.”
