Preview: Williams on Ipswich Town

17 August 2021

Despite the history and size of tonight's opponents to the Jonny-Rocks Stadium, forward Andy Williams sees the game as another opportunity to get Cheltenham Town's first League One win of the season.

The experienced striker celebrated his 35th birthday with Cheltenham's equaliser on Saturday against Wycombe Wanderers, though the Robins went onto lose 3-1 to the Chairboys.

Ahead of tonight's game with former UEFA Cup winners Ipswich though the former Swindon Town and Northampton attacker is keen to highlight that it is just XI and against XI, and any history or reputation is left off the pitch while the two teams do battle.

"They came down from the Championship a few years ago and struggled a bit last year to do what they were expected to do," he said.

"They are in our league now and they're here for a reason. Hopefully we can put on a good display and get a more positive result than we had on Saturday.

"Two teams are coming in off the back of defeats. There's everything to play for.

"They'll probably bring a decent following and it'll be nice to have another relatively full stadium.

"That's a factor we've got to take into consideration as well, especially after a season of quietness last year. It's exciting for us and exciting for everyone."
