Williams comes from a Wolves supporting family and admits that tomorrow they will be faced with the split loyalty between club and family as they see their boy line up against their team.

Williams told the Evening Post “As soon as the fixtures came out, Wolves was the first team I looked out for and then I looked at the other teams

“When I signed for Swansea I remember going back to Tamworth in the summer and I talked to a lot of people and they were obviously talking about Wolves. They are very passionate about their club and they were delighted that we had won League One to get into the Championship.

“They told me they hoped myself and Swansea enjoy a good season, but I couldn’t score against Wolves — they probably wouldn’t forgive me for that.

“I guess it will be a little strange for my parents supporting the team that is playing Wolves.

“They will be cheering me on. Whoever I am playing against they will support me first.

“My parents grew up in Wolverhampton and I’m from there, so it makes it a special game.

“And I’ve had to ask some of the players to give me some extra tickets because a lot of people want to come down to see me.”
