Ashley Williams has received praises from teammate, Tommy Songo ahead of LISCR FC’s crucial CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round return leg against USM Bel Abbes on Wednesday, December 5 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.
Songo spoke on William’s current form at the pre-match press conference held at the Antoinette Tubman stating that Williams deserves to play with the current form he’s having. However, he needs more games to get the experience to be a top goalkeeper.
“He deserves to play. He deserves to start. He is very good. You can see he’s having a good form. With that, no coach will want to have him benched. All he needs is the experience which he’s getting. With more games under his belt, he can definitely be a good goalkeeper”, Songo said.
Williams started in goal ahead of Songo in the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round first leg 4-0 defeat to USM Bel Abbes in Algeria on September 27. Despite the defeat, Williams was brilliant in goal making five brilliant saves which made him Abbes’ fans favorite by giving him a standing ovation during the match.
