24 February 2010 : Williams Overjoyed At Walsall Winner
Yeovil Town striker Sam Williams has said that he is 'overjoyed' to get the winning goal against Walsall last night. The target-man had a loan spell with the Saddlers last season, whilst an Aston Villa player, and sunk his former loan employers with a 5th minute goal.

Williams was particularly pleased to get the winner after viewing the match video of Saturday's match against Charlton Athletic where he missed two clearcut chances during the first half. Hence he was glad to bury his first opportunity when it came his way last night:

"The last game (against Charlton) I looked back at it on TV and I was devastated after missing those chances. I knew that if I had put them away then it could have changed the game. But I'm just happy to get the goal and to get the win, because it's a massive win to come here. They've been beating big teams, so to get the win and obviously the goal as well, I'm overjoyed."

Much of the national media and Walsall press have blamed home keeper Clayton Ince for conceding the goal, describing Ince's mistake as a "howler". But Williams feels that is a little unfair on the Trinidad and Tobago international, pointing out that he got an initial touch on the ball as Gavin Tomlin's cross came in that may have deceived the keeper:

"The ball came over the top and I've got a touch on it. I don't think Ince was going to get a hand on it. So it's hit him and bounced back to me as I was lying on the floor, and I ended up volleying it in whilst I was on the floor. But I'll take 10 or 15 of them a season, all day."
