HUDDERSFIELD Town's Robbie Williams is determined to earn a new contract and today pledged: “We can make the play-offs at least.”
The 25-year-old is delighted his first goal of the season pushed Lee Clark’s side into the League I top six and he’s eager to start an FA Cup run with victory against Dagenham & Redbridge in the first round on Friday.
Williams is out of contract in the summer but, having started the last four matches, his focus is on making the left-back slot his own for seasons to come.
“I am out of contract at the end of the year but I want to stay because I’m enjoying my football so much and I really believe we can achieve things,” he said.
“I’ve had to wait patiently for 14 matches to get my place back while Joe Skarz has gone in and done the job, but now I’ve got my chance I’m determined to make the most of it.
“The staff, the squad and the fans here are brilliant, I think I’m playing pretty consistently at the moment and I want to stay involved as long as I can.
“I’ve been in play-off teams before who are no better than we are because we’ve got strong back-up in every position. There’s no reason why we can’t make the play-offs at least this season.”
Striker Robbie Simpson, who has already missed three matches, will be ruled out another month by his thigh injury.
Manager Clark explained: “He is coming along slower than we first thought because there’s more of a problem than we believed.
“It’s a disappointment for us but more so for Robbie, because it’s been stop-start for him.”
Lee Novak (shoulder) is feeling much better but will have a precautionary scan today.
