Williams ready for his trip to the front

Perthshire Advertiser - - THURSDAY’S TV -

Ge­orge Williams is rel­ish­ing the chance to plug St John­stone’s striker short­age in the re­main­ing five Premier­ship fix­tures.

The Perth side are down to the bare bones up top with Chris Kane, Denny John­stone, David McMil­lan and Cal­lum Hendry all cur­rently out in­jured.

Saints man­ager Tommy Wright is con­sid­er­ing play­ing Williams in a more ad­vanced po­si­tion when the post-split ac­tion kicks-off against Dundee this week­end.

“I have played quite a lot of my foot­ball up front and it’s a po­si­tion that I am used to and one where I know what to do,” Williams said.

“I started up front in my first game against Celtic be­fore mov­ing to the wing. But I played a lot of my foot­ball for Ful­ham Under-23s up front, so I’m com­fort­able.

“If I play there, hope­fully I might be able to get my­self a goal. I wanted to get goals when I first ar­rived but I haven’t found the net yet.

“I’ve been more of the cre­ator but scor­ing goals is what I want to be do­ing be­fore the sea­son ends.

“It isn’t both­er­ing me that I haven’t scored yet be­cause I feel I have been cre­at­ing a lot of chances for other play­ers.”

Williams missed the 4-0 win against Dundee at Dens Park in March but is hop­ing to in­spire Saints to a sim­i­lar score­line on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

He said:“It was a good re­sult against Dundee last time and if we get a sim­i­lar one ev­ery­one will be happy with that.

“They are go­ing to need a win so it’s go­ing to be a tough game. But we won’t be tak­ing our foot off the gas and will be go­ing for the three points.”
