Williams determined to improve his City goal ratio
10:10am Saturday 7th December 2013 in Sport By Steve Carley - Midlands Sports Journalist of the Year 2013, @stevecarleyWN
ATTACKING midfielder Aaron Williams admits he has underachieved in front of goal for Worcester City this season.
The 20-year-old bagged his second of the campaign in the 3-0 FA Trophy first round replay triumph at Telford United last Tue-sday, add-ing to his strike against Lincoln City in the FA Cup in October.
But he reckons he should be close to double figures for the Blue and Whites with the amount of chances that have fallen his way.
The former Walsall youngster said: “It’s my second but I should have had eight or nine by now. I have had some bad luck in front of goal.
“I should have had two goals at Harrogate but I didn’t have much confidence in front of goal. I’m just glad that I took my goal well on Tuesday.”
Williams, who played 10 games on loan at Telford while with the League One Saddlers, is now looking to use his goal as a catalyst for more this season.
He has appeared in every City game this term, 16 of which he has started, and will be aiming to continue that record in tomorrow’s Skrill North match against Oxford City at Aggborough (3pm).
In doing so, Williams wants to help Worcester pull away from the relegation zone as they seek to make it six games unbeaten following the Telford victory.
“We couldn’t believe how good a first-half we had, nothing could go wrong for us with shots on target and the passing and moving,” he said.
“I think we just caught them out by how quick we were on the attack. We still could have got a couple more goals in the second-half but we just wanted to relax, pass the ball and show how much of a good passing team we are.”
He added: “Hopefully we can push on in the cup and league. I think our league performances are not as good as in the cup so we need to think how we can turn it round.”
