SIMON Ferry has hailed Town’s comeback against Coventry City on Saturday and believes that they might even have won the game.
The midfielder also said that the switch in formation played a part in the turnaround and praised James Collins for his equalising strike.
“It was a great comeback,” he said. “First half obviously wasn’t good enough. At times we played some football, we made a few chances but we weren’t deadly enough in front of goal. The last cross, last pass, last shot wasn’t quite good enough and I think they’ve been in our box three times and scored twice. In the second half that spell of thirty minutes was a great comeback and I think we could have won the game had we been a bit more clinical but to come back from 2-0 down against any team is a good effort.
“I think the switch (in formation) meant Gary Roberts got on the ball centrally a bit more which meant we could get the ball into him and we could pass it a bit more when we went to that formation. Whether it was down to the formation or not it seemed to open up a lot more chances for us and it seemed to work.”
“He (Collins) took his goal really well. He leathered it and it went in the top corner so I’m pleased for him. Obviously he’s a Coventry fan so it was good for him to get a goal.”
Swindon have failed to win their last two home games, something which Ferry says needs to change against Scunthorpe next weekend.
He continued: “With Scunthorpe we need to win. We need to get back to winning ways at home that’s what we built our success on last year, winning so many home games so next week we’ll definitely be looking to go and win the game as we do every home game. We’ve drawn today and lost the last one so it’s up to us to win.”
