Danny Williams had a great record playing for Inverness against Aberdeen – now he is looking to take up where he left off against the Dons for Dundee.
Derek McInnes’s side will be at Dens tomorrow for the lunchtime Ladbrokes Premiership clash, with both teams having made identical starts to the league campaign, winning one, drawing three with one loss.
The Dark Blues are determined to break their Dens duck for the season and Williams is looking for a repeat of the events of January 18, 2014 at Pittodrie when he scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory for Caley.
When asked what it took to beat Aberdeen, the 28-year-old said: “I think just everyone working together as a team, grafting really hard.
“They have good wingers particularly.
“But I had quite a good record against them with Inverness.
“Everything just really clicked when we played them and hopefully that’s what we can do on Sunday and play the football we know we can.
“When the chances come, we have to take them.
“I have scored the winner against Aberdeen before and it would be nice to do it again.”
Of course, for Williams to achieve that aim, he has to force his way back into the side after being left out against Kilmarnock last week.
He admits it was frustrating being on the bench and while he admits the best is yet to come from him, he is determined to win his shirt back.
Williams added: “I have settled in well at the club and I think I have got off to a not bad start.
“I would have liked a couple more wins and hopefully we can put that right on Sunday.
“Personally, I think I could have done a wee bit better particularly in the last couple of games.
“It is definitely something I am looking to do. I have to get back in the team to start with and hopefully contribute more goals.
“I am the same as everyone else, I want a run in the team.
“It is all about getting my confidence up and putting in performances.
“It was frustrating last week but I was cheering the lads on. I thought we could have won the game, to be honest.
“We were the better team and could have got two more points out of the game.
“We were unlucky but it was tough watching.
“Obviously, it is nice to be playing but I have been left out quite a lot over the last couple of years but I have also played a lot.
“It is just part and parcel of football – if you’re not playing well, you might lose your place.
“The standard here is high and there are other lads champing at the bit to take your position.
“It is the same with me – my shirt was taken and I am determined to get it back.
“The best is still to come from me, 100%. It is only early days yet but hopefully I can put in some big performances.”
