Williams edging closer to return

21 April 2022

Shota Arveladze has confirmed that this weekend’s game against Reading will come too soon for Randell Williams, as he continues to recover from a knee injury.

The 25-year-old midfielder has been out of action since mid-January, but has recently returned to full training with the first team.

“He trained with the group (on Thursday),” explained Arveladze.

“He’s only trained a few times with us. It’s difficult to say (whether or not he will play a part between now and the end of the season).

“I think it’s still too soon (for him to feature against Reading). We have to be a little bit careful with him.”

One player who did return to the team against Millwall on Easter Monday was Nathan Baxter, and Arveladze is pleased to have two solid goalkeeping options in his squad with Matt Ingram also fighting for his place.

“He (Baxter) did well (against Millwall),” said Arveladze.

“There’s a lot of pressure on both of them (Baxter and Ingram). They’ve had their chances and have shown they can play. It’s good competition between them.

“I think I’ll still make changes (against Reading), but not much.”
