‘Williams will play’ – Ward

BEN Williams will keep his place in goal at Chesterfield on Saturday.

BEN Williams will keep his place in goal at Chesterfield on Saturday.

Williams came in for his first league game of the season, against Walsall last weekend, due to fellow keeper Mark Cousins injuring his shoulder in training on the eve of the game.

The ex-Carlisle custodian kept Colchester United’s first clean-sheet of the campaign, in that 1-0 success, although he had very little to do. Cousins is still not fit, so Williams will play against the Spireities.

“It is going to be the same, because Mark still has a very sore shoulder,” revealed U’s boss John Ward during this morning’s press conference.

“That’s going to be the case for the next week or two, He hasn’t trained, so Ben will stay in goal.”

Williams has been the U’s No. 1 for much of the last two seasons, although a mystery virus over the summer delayed his return this campaign, coupled with Cousins’ fine form in goal.
