STRIKER Andy Williams says that Tuesday’s draw against Sheffield United was a point gained rather than two points dropped.
Speaking to the official website after the game, the frontman believes that Town should take the positives from a goal-less draw against the League leaders.
“They’re a good side,” he said. “Obviously they’re near the top of the league and we haven’t been brilliant at home of late. Anyone that came to watch the game tonight could see there was only one team that was going to win the game and I think that was us. A bit disappointed that we didn’t create a few more chances and possibly take the ones we did have but all in all a point against them isn’t a bad result.
“I don’t think they created much in the game. They were solid at the back and quite hard to break down so in that respect they’re probably near the top of the league for that reason mainly but going forward I don’t think they caused us any problems. The back four, the goalkeeper and all the lads in midfield did brilliantly defending again tonight and it’s just a shame we couldn’t create enough up front to turn one point into three.”
After Saturday’s FA Cup disappointment, the former Yeovil man offered his own opinion on why Swindon had underperformed against Macclesfield.
“I think everyone realised that the mentality wasn’t right going into the game on Saturday,” he explained. “It was a tough game to have after the Villa game. It sounds strange but playing lower league opposition after the highs of playing against Aston Villa it was always a tough game to have and we were all aware of that before the game but unfortunately we didn’t go out and do anything about it.
“Tonight gave us a chance straight away to put it right in front of another good crowd and I think 0-0 is a good result and I think we showed with the way we played that we deserved to possibly get three points. Obviously there’s a bit of disappointment when you don’t get three points and you feel like you’ve deserved it but you’ve got to be positive with coming away with a point.”
