Williams headed in the opener before substitute Garbhan Coughlan sealed victory late on and the former Plymouth Argyle man feels the win takes the pressure off the Blues after some disappointing results. “It was a hard fought win,” Williams admitted post-match. "I think the result probably flatters us a bit. It was a sticky game and there weren’t a lot of chances for either side but we needed to come here and get a result. "This win takes a bit of the pressure off and opens up a good gap between ourselves and Drogheda at the bottom.” The centre-back scored his second goal of the season on 12 minutes but his goal only stood after referee Robert Harvey overruled his assistant who had flagged for offside. “I was a little worried when I saw the flag but I think the referee got it right,” the 29-year-old acknowledged. "The ball flicked off the head of a Drogheda player so I couldn’t be offside. It was a big goal for us so early in the game.” Despite the Blues dominance in possession, they had to wait until the 85th minute before they could seal the win with Williams confident that they can continue to rise up the table. “Drogheda came out strong in the second-half and they pushed us back to begin with. "They played very direct and had a lot of runners in behind so we needed to stay switched on. "Whatever chances were in the game fell our way and there’s always a little bit of nerves until you get that second goal. “That’s now four points from our last two games so we’re moving in the right direction."
