Williams Wins January POTM

7 February 2015

TOWN fans have voted Andy Williams as the Swindon Town player of the month for January.

The forward netted four goals in four games as Town consolidated their place in the race for promotion from League One, with a brace in the 3-0 victory at Coventry City complimenting further strikes against Fleetwood Town and Chesterfield.

Williams received 28 per cent of the public vote to scoop the award, beating Harry Toffolo into second spot, and will be presented with the Link Sport trophy prior to this afternoon’s clash with Barnsley at the County Ground.

Reflecting on his own personal performances in January, Williams said: “This month I’m pretty happy. I think it’s four in four but if I’m brutally honest a goal or two against Sheffield United would have made me feel a little bit better. The problem in football is in football you only really remember the last game and forget how good the games might have been before that.

“I’m massively happy. The form of the lads has been good. Apart from the blip in the last game we’ve been playing really well and pushing our way up the league. The last game sticks in your memory and puts a dampener on things but hopefully we can put that right (against Barnsley).”

Town were beaten away from home for the first time in three months at Sheffield United last time out, failing to score in a fixture for only the fourth time this season in the process, but Williams does not expect any lasting after-effects from the experience at Bramall Lane.

“I don’t think it will be a massive dent,” he said. “I think it was just frustrating that we had a few weeks to prepare for it and although that seems like the perfect preparation for a game, I sometimes think that not having a game for two weeks means you come back a little bit rusty.

“Circumstances meant that it just wasn’t meant to be on Saturday and hopefully we’ve got that out of our systems now and we can put it right this weekend.

“It wasn’t like we didn’t create chances. I felt we dominated in the first half of the game and created a number of chances. I think it’s a credit to the lads and the way that we play at the moment that we create so many chances on a regular basis and only not scoring in four games is a pretty good record to have.

“Hopefully that will be the last time we fire a blank between now and the end of the season.”

Link Sport have teamed up with Swindon Town and Imagine Cruising to relaunch the player of the month award at the County Ground.

Fans will be able to pick the player they feel has contributed most to the Robins’ cause in a free-to-enter ballot, with everyone who votes being entered into a prize draw to win a P&O taster cruise.

The vote for the February player of the month award will open on Wednesday, February 18 and close at midnight on Wednesday, March 4. Visit to enter.
