Marcus Williams says the fierce competition for a regular a place in Danny Wilson's starting XI is a challenge he relishes.
The versatile left-sided player has been a vital squad member this season and he is confident of deputising for the injured Matt Hill in the weeks ahead, if given the opportunity to do so.
Speaking of the other options Wilson has at his disposal, Williams commented:
"At the start of pre-season I was the only fit left-back, but the Gaffer then signed Matty (Hill) and in Malta Lecsinel (Jean-Francois) was edging nearer a return.
"Callum (McFadzean) then got a chance and impressed, but it is good that all four of us can play in two positions and we have needed that versatility throughout the first half the season.
"I have played at left back and left wing, Hilly has played at left back and centre half and Callum is comfortable playing further forward, but hopefully I can now get a run of games in the team."
Looking ahead to the weekend's clash with Yeovil Town, Williams added: "Saturday will be another tough game, but one we should be confident of winning, especially at home.
"We had to work hard for all three points down there, but our focus is getting out of the blocks quickly, going forward and keeping things tight at the back.
"The lads are well aware our home form needs to improve in the second half of the campaign because we have dropped too many points and conceded too many sloppy goals here this term.
"With the support we receive both at home and away, Bramall Lane really should be something of a fortress."
