Cape Town - SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams admits that he did not perform to the best of his ability last season, after conceding 38 goals in 30 league games.

Matsatsantsa had a rollercoaster run last season, which included the axing of coach Gordon Igesund and appointment of Stuart Baxter.

Williams conceded 38 goals in the 30 Premiership games as Matsatsantsa finished in eighth place.

The arrival of Riyaad Pieterse from Kaizer Chiefs will make the battle for the number one jersey even tougher.

"On an individual level I was not happy with my own performances. I think I conceded far too many goals and that does not sit well with me," Williams told Goal.com website.

"And as a club, we have not done well in recent times as you may have seen, we struggled in the league the past couple of seasons.

"I think that was down to the chop and changing that was happening at the club. But I think under the new coach, everyone is in a good space and everything is looking good and positive. Personally I am feeling great, in a good space and looking forward to the new season.

"I have been playing regularly the past two season because of hard work. I look after my body well and I listen to what the goalkeeper coach says in order to improve my game and come the new season, I am looking forward to continuing with all that."
