Reaction: Williams on Doncaster Rovers

23 October 2021

Andy Williams revealed that it was a frustrated changing room after Cheltenham Town's 3-2 defeat at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday.

The experienced striker came off the bench and found the back of the net against his former club, but it wasn't enough as the Robins could only muster two goals as they looked to hit back against a Doncaster team who held a 3-0 lead.

Williams believes you can't concede as many goals as the team did at this level in away matches, and is determined to still play his part having had to wait for his chance to make an impact in recent times.

"As a whole team we're frustrated with our performance. Even so we created enough chances at 0-0, at 2-0 and at 3-0 to be honest," he said.

"We fell short just in the end but it's a frustrating day really. You can't come away from home in this league and give away three goals.

"Even if I'm not on the pitch my belief in my own ability will never change. I always believed the second I was put on the pitch in the last few weeks I was always going to score a goal.

"Obviously it's fitting that it happened to be at a former club. My confidence in my own ability and my belief and all the rest of it will never change.

"I'll be ready and I'll make sure that I am fit and raring to go for whenever I am called upon."
