The City Ground has been shrouded in a cloud of uncertainty over the last few seasons, and Williams' job surely cannot be an easy one given the previous decisions of owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi.
In what has been a dreadful season, Williams was delighted to finally chalk up his first win of his tenure.
"We've had some really good performances in recent weeks, I know results haven't shown it, but now we need to focus and to fight for the last two games," he said.
Forest currently sit 17th in the Championship table following a horrific run of nine losses in their last 15 outings, so the victory will be a welcome boost for everyone at the club.
The question now for fans of the East Midland club will be where does the club goes next?
Will Al-Hasawi's next managerial appointment be one with a long-term plan in mind? Will he be willing to give the next boss time to implement his philosophies and training methods?
It is obvious from the outside looking in that Forest need the feeling of continuity at the club. They need to stabilise and build from a solid base, with the hope that they can emulate clubs like Stoke City and Southampton in re-establishing themselves as a Premier League force.
Forest face Wolverhampton Wanderers and MK Dons in their last two league fixtures of the season, with only pride to play for in both matches.
