JORDAN Williams has enjoyed playing in the back three for Barnsley this season but will be happy to also be an option at right wing-back in the promotion run-in.

The Reds skipper, 24, has been used at centre-back this season, having some good games like against Carlisle on Tuesday but struggling physically in others against bigger forwards.

The arrival of centre-back Donovan Pines could mean he is moved out of the back three and back to right wing-back where he played last season.

Williams told the Chronicle: “It’s different but I have enjoyed it.

“Some aspects I have to be better at but others are good in that position.

“Maybe I will alternate positions now but I am just happy being out there, enjoying my football and trying to win as many games as possible for Barnsley.”

Williams is yet to score this season but recorded his second assist in midweek when he set up Devante Cole for the equaliser.

“I have been playing centre-back so my numbers haven’t been that high this year but it was good to chip in. It was a great finish from Devante.”

The Reds are fifth in League One, three points off the top two, going into the final 20 games of the season.

Williams, who has played 179 games for the Reds and every minute of the current league campaign, said: “It’s exciting being captain at a time like this.

“From where I came from to where I am now is massive.

“I give credit to the club and how they have improved me as a player.

“We have been in a good position all season and you can see we’re getting stronger.

“We are unbeaten in ten but I don’t think we can rest on our laurels. There is so much room to improve.

“As long as we keep working hard, we will be there or thereabouts.”

Barnsley now visit Stevenage and Oxford this week – the two sides directly beneath them in the table.

“It’s going to be a tough game on Saturday but one we will be ready for. We need to go there and battle then hopefully our quality will come out.”
