Wes - You'll See A Different Side

10 October 2012

WES Foderingham has declared that supporters will see a completely different home performance from Town after defeat last time out against Colchester.

Swindon’s number one says that the side have been hard at work on the training pitch and must once again make The County Ground a difficult place for visiting teams to come to. 

“The last two home games weren’t great for us - we know that,” he said. “We’ve not played well and we’ve lost so we’ll be looking to get back to playing well at home first, try and make it our fortress again and no better place to start than Saturday.

“We can’t put our finger on it. Maybe the mentality going into games or the rotation of the squad but all the boys are familiar with each other now and we’ve put the hours in on the training pitch and we’ve got an idea of how we want to play. On Saturday you’ll see a different side at home. I don’t think we’ll put out another performance like we did the previous two home games and I know the gaffer is not going to accept it so we’ll be looking to put it right.”

The goalkeeper also said that if Town can rectify their home form and continue to work on the defensive side of their game, they will start to make further progress up the League One table.

“I think we’ve been very solid defensively and not looked like conceding. I think we’ve tightened up away from home too. Especially last season we weren’t too good away from home and this season we’ve looked to change that but it’s obviously gone the other way with us not being too great at home. Once we get that sorted we’ll be able to kick on even more.

“The gaffer said the other day if you look at the league now we’re fourth. I know there’s not much in it because it’s early days but we’ve not even hit 70% of what we can do and we’re sitting quite high up in the league so once we get firing on all cylinders and the goals start coming from up front and the back four get even more solid like it was last season then we’re going to shoot up that table.”
