Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson says Andy Williams could be out to prove a point this season.
Williams was placed on the transfer list by Ferguson at the end of last season after two-years at the Keepmoat but his attitude and commitment at the start of pre-season saw the Doncaster boss decide to keep the striker, who is moving into the final year of his current deal with the club.
“The thing with Andy is he`s always done well when he gets into the final year of his contract,” Ferguson told The Star.
“Whether that is a coincidence or not I`m not sure but it is a fact.
“In the last year of his contract at Swindon, it was his best season. He got 22 goals that year.
“He`ll have the motivation to prove a point, have motivation to get a new contract, perhaps that will help him.
“I`m delighted he`s staying. He`s never given us a moment`s trouble. He`s a great lad.”
Williams has scored 28 goals in 93 appearances for Doncaster since joining them from Swindon Town in the summer of 2015.
