ANDY Williams says that this evening’s match at Colchester will be another test for Town on another difficult playing surface.
Swindon round off their run of three consecutive away games with a trip to Essex and the former Yeovil man says that the team will be looking to avenge their home defeat to Colchester earlier in the campaign.
“We were disappointed; it was a bad run we were on at the time,” he said. “We didn’t manage to get revenge on Leyton Orient unfortunately last Tuesday so hopefully it will be different against Colchester.
“The last two away games it’s been hard playing on poor pitches and we’re expecting another average pitch at Colchester. It’s going to be another test for the lads seeing what we can do.
“I don’t think at this stage of the season there are any ‘must win’ games mainly due to the fact that we’ve got to play all the top teams but if we want to give ourselves a bit of a push towards that top two spot then we need to win this game.”
The frontman revealed that while the Weston Homes Community Stadium had not been the happiest of hunting grounds for him in the past, his growing partnerships with Town’s other attacking options could bear fruit this evening.
“I’ve played there a few times and I don’t think I’ve had too many positive results,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve scored there either!
“Me and ‘Collo’ have been playing a lot together of late and obviously I had a bit of a run out at Crawley with ‘Roons’ as well so we’ve still got options up there.”
