Despite being far from his best goal-scoring form or physical condition, Montego Bay United (MBU) striker Dino Williams is confident he will get the goals his team needs to avoid relegation this season. Williams, who has struggled with a groin injury for the last three seasons, did surgery a few months ago and has only been back playing for a little over a month.

But the ace striker knows how important he is to the MBU attack and how much the team relies on him for goals, and he has no doubts about bagging at least a goal a game for the remaining six fixtures they have to honour to bail his team out of their relegation woes.

“I did a surgery a few months ago, so I am just coming back, I am not a hundred (per cent), but it can work,” he said. “It’s been five games, and I have scored two goals so far, and I think this is the best one (game) I have had. I feel much lighter, and I feel much sharper than the couple games that I played before, and I am not feeling any pain, so I am feeling all right.”

Assured and confident

MBU took a point after drawing 1-1 at Humble Lion on Sunday and although it was not the most favourable result, Williams seemed assured and confident that the team will survive relegation, and he believes he has a big role to play along the way.

“I know we will survive,” he said. “We just have to work as a team and get the job done, starting next week. Even though we got a point on the road, it’s a good point, but we have to do the business at home next week. So next week we have to go out and get the three points. But the team is looking towards me also, and the only thing I can do is get into training, work hard, and try to get some goals and see if I can help my team. With seven games to go, I am going to see if I can get eight to nine goals in those seven games. We have to go out and put in the work and do our best,” he continued.
