TOWN midfielder Tommy Miller says that the team still have a number of things to work on before the new season kicks off on 14th August.
Speaking after Swindon’s 1-0 friendly win at Supermarine on Monday evening, the Town new-boy was delighted to have scored the only goal of the game – his first in Swindon colours.
He said: “I was pleased to get the goal but performance-wise we’ve played better. The tempo was too slow, we didn’t move the ball quick enough so there are things to work on but we’ve got two weeks until the season starts.”
“You can put it (the performance) down to a few things but you’ve got to approach every game like it’s a cup final. We can’t take teams lightly even if they’re in the lower leagues. We’ve got to play them like we’re playing Brighton or against a League One side. Maybe the attitude tonight wasn’t as right as it has been but we’ve got things to work on and I’m sure we will.”
With Town's goal coming from a free-kick, Miller confirmed that the squad have been working on improving their attacking set-pieces ahead of the step-up to League One.
He said: “We’ve worked on free-kicks and corners and we’ve got a few in the locker so that one was worked. I’ve managed to get across the front, it’s a good ball in by Alan Navarro and I’m happy that it’s gone in.”
“In terms of selection the manager has got a squad to pick from but obviously I’m delighted to get 85 minutes under my belt and I’m feeling fit.”
