Millwall's Williams 'gunning' for points against his former boss Robinson

SHAUN William is set to face Karl Robinson this weekend – but says he isn’t aware of any interest his old boss might have in linking up with him for a second time.

Robinson brought Williams to English football in 2011 when he was manager of MK Dons.

Williams, 30, went on to make 137 appearances under current Charlton manager Robinson, who said his departure was a “big loss” when the former Republic of Ireland underage international switched to Millwall in January 2014.

A recent newspaper report suggested Robinson had Williams’ name on a list of potential recruits.

Asked if he had any knowledge he could be a target for Robinson, Williams said: “I didn’t see that.”

Williams will be aiming for a second win over Charlton in less than a month when Millwall make the short trip to The Valley on Saturday afternoon.

Williams still has the utmost respect for his former manager, but says he will be “gunning for the three points” that could put them six clear of their rivals in the League One table.

“He’s a great guy, gives you a lot of freedom and is a good man manager and coach,” Williams said.

“They’ll probably do better than they did the last time but we’re not really too worried about what they’re going to do, we’re just going to worry about our own performance and how we can win the game.

“Against Charlton it’s a massive game for the club, the fans and the players so we’ll be gunning for the three points.”
