ANDY Williams believes that Swindon Town are turning their County Ground home into a fortress.
The striker, who bagged his second goal in two matches in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Crewe Alexandra, feels that it has been a fine start to the season for the Robins.
The victory over Crewe saw the club maintain their perfect start to their home campaign and moved Town into sixth place in the League One table.
“We have started well, away we haven’t quite picked up the points that we have possibly deserved,” he said.
“But at home we are starting to make this place a bit of fortress, hopefully that will continue.”
Williams, is now one of the elder statesmen in Mark Cooper’s squad at 28 and after returning to the side following a serious cruciate ligament injury, is forming a good strike partnership with Michael Smith.
While the forward admits that it will take time for them to get used to how they play, he knows that they will continue to improve given the chance.
“It is going to take time, any partnership between two strikers does,” he said.
“We had pre-season together, probably four games, no more than 45 or 60 minutes at a time so it will take a period of time to progress and improve.
“The more minutes we get on the pitch together, the better it will become for us and Swindon as well.
“We are still having opportunities to look for each other a bit more. Hopefully there will be a bit of time in the season we can find each other and set up a few goals for each other, as well as link up the play for other lads to get chances.”
For the past three matches, Town have dominated possession over their opponents and against Crewe they again had more than 60 per cent of the ball.
And Williams feels that this style of football is only going to help him.
“I think anyone who likes to play football this (style) can only suit them,” he said.
“Sometimes I like to run in behind a little bit more, but my pace in this sort of formation hopefully stretches the team and gives our talented midfielders even more time and space on the ball.
“I’d like to think that I can affect it anyway I possibly can. Keep giving me chances to score and I’m not going to complain with two in two.”
Mark Cooper is also hoping that Williams can continue his form after his impressive start to the campaign.
The Town boss said: “He’s got a history of going on runs and scoring goals, so we hope that run keeps going.
“Him and Michael have linked up well in the last few games. If two of them get on a run they will be a real threat to anyone.”
