Williams Pleased With Return To Goalscoring Form

13 February 2016

LUKE Williams spoke to the media after Town’s 4-1 win at Colchester.

On the three points…
To get back to scoring was very satisfying. We went a couple of games not hitting the back of the net so that was a relief. There was a mini crisis and we’ve shown again that we’re lethal on the attack so we’re going to feel positive we can score goals next weekend. (The timing of the first goal) was a key moment in the game. It can give you that sinking feeling when you’re down near the bottom. I felt like we lost that control towards the end. I’d give credit to Colchester for that - they came out fighting in the second half and we did lose a bit (of control) but on the flip side we found space up the pitch.

On the goalscorers…
We know that Nicky (Ajose) is never going to be long without scoring with his record of goals over the years. With Michael (Doughty) I’m really pleased. It looked like he’d been trying to find room to get a strike off from the edge of the box over the past couple of games. That will give him confidence.

On Ellis Iandolo…
Ellis works hard every day and we can see he’s desperate to get out there and make this step forward he’s trying to make. He did well off the bench last week and part of his learning process is to be starting a game so I’m delighted for him.

On injured absentees… 
Yaser (Kasim) has a problem with his knee and Fabien Robert has a problem with a nerve issue giving him symptoms of hamstring problem without any evidence of a hamstring problem. Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill is making a good recovery and we expect him to be back involved very soon. It was something in his hamstring that was low grade that could have become more serious.

On the decision to replace Nicky Ajose with Jermaine Hylton…
To be honest I’m delighted for Nicky to be frustrated. He scored two goals and could be happy with his day’s work but he’s not. I’ve not got a problem with that. I felt he’d done a fantastic shift for the team, he’d done his days work and it’s important that we got Jermaine Hylton on the pitch today. If anything does happen to Jon or Nicky then Jermaine is ready and feels sharp so that was the view with that.
