Yeovil Town striker Sam Williams wants to see his club finishing off some of the clubs around and below them in the table in an effort to move up the table. The Glovers have recently drawn matches against Charlton Athletic, Milton Keynes Dons, Norwich City and Hartlepool United, which has certainly been no disgrace, but those statistics mean that they've not won since the November 14th home game against Southend United.
The Glovers now move into a six game phase which includes four sides below them in the table, including Boxing Day's home match against Wycombe Wanderers, and Williams has told BBC Somerset that he hopes that Yeovil can start to turn those draws into wins, starting with Saturday's opponents:
"Yes, they've (Wycombe) been through a bad run. But we need to start beating teams around us and below us. We are better than where we are in the table at the minute. Our performances have shown that. So hopefully we can get a win there. We've looked at the next six games, and they're all teams around us in the table, and in every single game we can win."
The next six games are not entirely plain sailing. Swindon Town, who are Yeovil's opponents on December 28th, have recently sneaked into a play-off place, despite having played a couple of games less than the sides around them. The Wiltshire side currently tops the form table. Meanwhile Colchester United, who visit Huish Park in early January have done well to recover from the loss of manager Paul Lambert to promotion rivals Norwich City. Even Boxing Day's opponents Wycombe and January's opposition Tranmere Rovers could prove tricky opposition, with both having radically improved under new management. Whilst many of the next six matches are winnable matches, the Glovers shouldn't get too carried away with what can be achieved from such fixtures.
