Melbourne Heart FC winger David Williams has credited his improvement this season to the Heart’s coaching staff, but is still eager to add more goals to his repertoire, starting this Sunday.
Williams has illustrated his pace, potency and potential down the left wing this season, netting four goals in the process, including a superb strikes against Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar.
But Heart’s number 15 has expressed his desire to add to that tally to cement himself as one of Heart’s deadliest attacking outlets.
Williams believes his improvement has stemmed from encouragement from Heart’s coaching staff, which has given home a more defined role and added clarity on field.
“My job-s a lot clearer. I think that-s why I-ve been playing better,” Williams said.
“[But] It is disappointing to only score four goals. It-s coming up to a stage where I need to give more to show what I can do.
”I think I do have a lot more to offer.”
The Red and White will be looking to continue its excellent home form, which has seen it collect maximum points at AAMI Park in 2013, when it takes on the Sky Blues on Sunday.
AAMI Park has quickly become a Red and White fortress and despite coming off a loss against Newcastle Jets last week, Williams believes the side can return to their best and avoid a repeat of the side’s last-gasp defeat in Sydney in January.
“[Sydney] fight; they go right until the end. But we-re very confident at home,” WIlliams said.
The Heart sit just two points outside the finals race with six matches remaining.
With Sydney FC three points ahead of the Red and White, a win this weekend will give the side an excellent opportunity to rejoin the top six with only a handful of games remaining.
