The Magpies are without a Barclays Premier League win in four attempts and have collected only two points from the last 12 on offer.
Nevertheless, they remain in sixth place, two points clear of closest chasers Liverpool, who narrowed the gap as a result of their 3-0 derby victory over Everton in midweek, 24 hours after Newcastle's narrow 2-1 defeat at Arsenal.
Williamson said: "People are going to look at that and, by the standards the boys have set earlier on in the season, they are going to start calling it a mini-crisis and things like that.
"But I just think in the last three or four games, the luck just hasn't been on our side.

"We've worked hard, we've put as much preparation and heart into the games and we just haven't had the rub of the green, with the other night and the penalty against Sunderland, 2-0 up against Wolves, things like that.
"We just haven't had that luck, but the lads have been working hard - that's what can turn it around, hard work, and that's what we've got in that dressing room.''
Should Alan Pardew's men manage to secure a top-six finish, it could prove enough to book them a Europa League berth for the next campaign, and that would be a massive bonus at the end of their second year back in the top flight.
The fact they currently head Carling Cup winners Liverpool with just 10 games to go is a measure of how far the Magpies have come since they fought their way back into the Premier League at the end of the 2009-10 season, and Williamson admits he would readily have accepted that situation if offered it at the start of the campaign.
He said: "The whole club would have settled for that.''
Norwich frontmen Grant Holt and Steve Morison have both made an impact in the top flight, and Williamson knows he and skipper Fabricio Coloccini could be in for an equally difficult 90 minutes.
