Rovers boss feels for Williams

Fon Williams: Overlooked

Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore was delighted to have goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams back in his side last weekend.

Moore feels Fon Williams has every right to feel aggrieved at not getting the nod for his country.

In the absence of Wayne Hennessey and Boaz Myhill, Crystal Palace's Lewis Price was preferred to Fon Williams by Wales boss Chris Coleman for last Friday's dramatic 2-1 win over Scotland in Cardiff.

Having missed the cut the 25-year-old was granted permission by Coleman to travel back to the Wirral overnight and duly started Rovers' 3-2 comeback triumph over Yeovil at Prenton Park the following day.

"Obviously we've got to thank Chrissy Coleman for that, but the boy was desperately unhappy that he didn't play for Wales on the Friday," Moore said. "When you look that the two main 'keepers for Wales are injured, the boy Price is hardly getting a game and we're top of the league, I think he really should have played.

"Chris is the manager, he decides, but it shows great willingness by Fonners to say 'look, I want to get up there, I don't want to be missing any games, I want to play'.

"It's good of Chris, a great attitude by him and, by the way, he made a tremendous save when it was 3-2. So all in all it's great that he got back up. That's the spirit of the camp - no-one wants to miss a game."
