Iron attacker Luke Williams is looking forward to the rest of the season after putting his injury troubles behind him.

He has suffered a couple of injury setbacks this campaign, but finds himself fit again to spearhead United’s play-off push, starting on Saturday against Chesterfield.

Williams made an impact from the bench at Shrewsbury last weekend and is hoping to make up for lost time in the season’s remainder.

Williams told The Iron PlayerHD: “A substitute’s job is to come on and make an impact and change the game any way they can, so it was nice to come on and get an assist.

“We should’ve come away with three points so we are a bit unhappy about that.

“It has been a bit of a stop-start season for me, but hopefully I have got them behind me and I can have a good end to the season now.

“I feel good and felt good after the game, so hopefully I’ll be alright for Saturday.”

The Iron take on a Chesterfield side that has picked up a bit of form of late, leading them away from relegation danger.

United won the corresponding fixture 3-0 and will be hoping to do the double over the Derbyshire side, whilst extending their own good form.

Williams was confident that the Iron could get a good result this time around, building on a positive result at Chesterfield earlier in the campaign.

He said: “They are a good side. I think we beat them earlier in the season, so they will be looking to even things up, but it is a game we feel we should be winning.

“The sending off changed the game and made it comfortable for us, but it was still three points. We weren’t in the best of form back then, and we hope that we can do it again.”

The Iron have only suffered one defeat in ten and are only seven points off the play-off places, which Williams feels is a real target for United.

He felt that the confidence in the squad and also their good run of form gives them a great chance of making the top six.

Williams said: “We want to win as many as we can to give ourselves the best possible chance. I think we are an inform team at the minute and if we can turn our draws into wins then there’s no reason we can’t reach the play-offs.”
