Canberra playmaker Sam Williams has conceded the Raiders haven’t been the same threat at GIO Stadium as they’ve been away ahead of their clash with Newcastle this weekend.
“We need to really make sure we play well. We haven’t been performing as well as we probably would’ve liked at home, although we have been close we haven’t managed to get the points,” Williams told nrl.com.
“[Knights is] a big game for us and we need to win it.
“We’re not far off the top eight but really just being in touch with the top eight is not something we’re happy with or something we want to settle on.
“We’d rather be entrenched in the top eight and making things a little bit easier on ourselves.
“We’re in a position now we need to get back on track and a couple of wins will put us right back in the mix.”
