INTERVIEW: BEN WILLIAMSONBack among the goals at the weekend, U’s striker Ben Williamson is looking forward to pushing on in Sky Bet League Two over the Easter period.
The 27-year old netted twice against Yeovil Town on Saturday afternoon, to end a run of four games without a goal as well as ensuring the U’s took maximum points.
Speaking to Cambridge-United.co.uk, the striker said he was pleased to be back on the score sheet but importantly aid the U’s in their play-off push.
He said: “I was obviously delighted to get on the score sheet, not once but twice. It was a big win for the team and has allowed us to keep on the tails of the top seven.
“When the teams around us win, it is important we do the same to keep in contention and obviously when they don’t it opens up the chance to close the gap.
“The three points have set up the two games over the Easter break nicely, where again we can look to push on.”
He continued: “When you go a few games without a goal, as a striker you start thinking, where is it going to come from?
“But you have to stick it out, work hard to get into the box and on Saturday I scored two, perhaps should have even had three or four. However, I’ll take the two which give me good confidence and more importantly we are happy with the three points.”
With the U’s facing two of the division’s top three sides in the next seven days, Bristol Rovers and Oxford United, Williamson is under no illusion of the difficult task facing United.
However, buoyed by back-to-back positive performances, Williamson is convinced the men in amber and black have what it takes to come through the clashes in good shape.
“Easter is a big time of the season, going away to Bristol for starters will be tough especially considering they have come off a big 4-1 win.
“If we can go there and produce a performance like we know we can do, then there really isn’t any reason why we can’t go there and win.”
