Striker Augustine Williams has recorded five goals in the last seven games following his brace against Tampa Bay Rowdies in Charleston Battery‘s 2-1 win, a run of form he is pleased about.

As a result, he has helped his side to gain 14 points leading the USL table after their six opening matches.

The Sierra Leone International has started where he left off last season after he led Charleston’s attack bagging a career-high 16 goals across 32 matches. Williams also registered three assists, 21 chances created, and 116 duels won during the campaign.

Williams, 25, brace on Thursday was his fifth in Charleston Battery’s last five USL Championships matches thus far. 

“It’s great to start feeling good once again and being in this form that I’m in currently,” Williams told FSL News. “My job is to help the team in any way I can. And so far, I’ve done that in the best way I can. 

“Scoring against Tampa Bay Rowdies, one of the best teams in the USL Championship, is always great. I always get motivated to play against them because when you play against one of the best, you want to put in your best performance and show you can compete, as well.”

Williams and his club will face Louisville City FC at home on Saturday, April 22.
