Williams facing fitness fight
Ashley Williams admits he is struggling with an ankle injury as Swansea battle to turn around their poor run of form.
The Swans started the season in fine style but have since gone off the boil and three defeats on the bounce have set the alarm bells ringing at the Liberty Stadium. Matters have not been helped by the fact Williams has made a couple of uncharacteristic and costly mistakes, while the defender also says an ankle injury is hindering him. "It's not been great. I've been making a few mistakes and conceding goals personally," he told the South Wales Evening Post. "The thing you want to do is get back on the training pitch and get your confidence back and not being able to do that with an annoying injury is tough. "It's still there, niggling. It's been tough but I'm just going to keep my head down and keep working. "We've got a massive game next week (against Reading) back at home, and the main focus has got to be to get back on it. We've lost three on the bounce but I think we started the season pretty well and we've got points on the board. I'm not worried, I'm concerned but we're the people who can change it."
