Williams Wants More Of The Same

Randell Williams action

Consistency is key for Randell Williams as he bids to build on his flying start to the season.

By his own admission, Williams took his time to find his feet at Wanderers after signing from Hull City in January.

Injury meant the wideman had been short of game-time in the closing months of his stay with the Tigers but after getting fully up to speed, Williams has been a key man in the Whites’ positive start to the current campaign.

“Having a good pre-season here was really beneficial to me,” said Williams – an ever-present in League One so far.

“I think every player needs a bit of time (after joining a new club). Some more than others. Clearly, I needed a little bit more.

“I hadn't played for a little while and I came in and was in and out of the team and a bit inconsistent with performances. Hopefully I'm now showing I can produce consistent performances.

“I'll always look at myself first. You can see that I'm clearly improving and I want to improve even more. Where we are in the league is fantastic, but we still want to push on further.

“It’s really important for myself and the whole team; consistency is the main thing in football. If you consistently give performances, you consistently get results.”

Wanderers are beginning to find that habit again with a run of five wins in their last seven games in all competitions and the chance to make it a hat-trick of league victories at home to Carlisle United on Saturday.

A fifth home league win could see Ian Evatt's men close the gap on the top two in the table before heading into an international break.

Williams is again set to have an important role to play – both defensively and as Wanderers’ attacking outlet down the left-hand side against the Cumbrians.

And the wing-back is keen to increase his output around the opponents’ penalty area in terms of goals and assists to add to Wanderers’ threat as they look to cement their place in the top six.

“I've got to continue my form and one thing for me is I want put up some more numbers,” Williams added.

“The most important thing is to win but I'm always going to have my own personal goals in the side and I want to create as many chances I can as possible for the team to score goals and win the games.

“I think we're in a good position right now. We’ll be in an even better position if we get three points on Saturday and then we have a little mental break and hopefully come back and continue.”
