Paul Williams confident of Swans improvement

New Swansea assistant boss Paul Williams believes the club can get back on track this season after a sluggish start.

The 45-year-old has been appointed as Bob Bradley’s number two, as the club look to try and improve their fortunes as quickly as possible.

The former Nottingham Forest caretaker boss has signed a two-and-a-half year contract after opting to step down from his interim role with England Under-20s.

Williams does not boast any Premier League coaching experience although he did make over 200 appearances in the top flight for Coventry and Southampton.

He has also been credited with developing the likes of Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and James Ward-Prowse while working with Southampton’s academy.

The Liberty Stadium outfit currently sit just one place off the foot of the table, on goal difference alone, but Williams feels that with just 11 games gone they have enough time to recover.

Williams said: “Without a shadow of a doubt we can do well this season.

It has not been an ideal start, but it is in situations like this where you find out about players and about the club.

“It’s our job now to dig deep and make sure we can make an impact in the Premier League.

“The good thing is that there is still a long way to go in the season.

We still have a lot of games in front of us, so we have the opportunity to turn things around.”

Swansea can be backed at 6.00 to pick up their second league win of the season when they travel to face Everton this weekend.
