Navarro - Four Goals A Bonus

24 September 2012

TOWN midfielder Alan Navarro says that simply picking up three points is the team's primary focus in matches despite putting four goals past Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon. 

Swindon produced a dominant display at the weekend and Navarro says that scoreline was an added gloss on a good day's work for the home side. 

"It was a decent day for us," he said. "We started sharply, on the front foot and got a couple of early goals that set the day up for us nicely. The most important thing at the minute is getting the three points - obviously to do it the way we did and get the four goals in the way we did is a bonus but we’ll take one-nils or two-nils to get the three points especially if we play well and we keep doing what we’re doing.

"It's always nice to score four goals - sometimes it might look a bit flattering but I think we deserved it today."

The midfielder then declared that the Town's results 'blip' was over before assessing his own situation at the club and looking forward to the Burnley game. 

"These things happen in football. That's not to say that we’re going to go through the season winning every single game but we’ve got to try and do it. Obviously we’ve got to look to the future now. 

"If I'm on the pitch I just want to try and do my job. I'm still learning under the gaffer but it's just one of those things: whoever he picks is going to have to go out there and just do the job. I'm trying to do my own job when I'm out on the pitch to try and stay in the team but I know it's going to come to a time where the gaffer's going to change the team now and again and obviously I've got to be prepared not to be in the team sometimes but that’s just part of football.

"At the minute we’re just taking each games as it comes. The gaffer’s been saying we need to have little cup finals in our heads and don’t think about the next game and that’s what we’ve been doing. We've been putting all our energy into each individual game and now we’ve got a bonus against Burnley tomorrow. I'm not saying we’ll be relaxed but we can go out there and play with a little bit of freedom, go into it on a high and look to win the game."
