SWINDON Town head to in-form AFC Bournemouth this weekend and it’s a challenge that Robins captain Alan McCormack is already looking forward to.
Town will be backed by a sell-out away crowd of 1,360 fans at The Goldsands Stadium and the skipper is eyeing up another crunch clash as the promotion race hots up.
McCormack said: “Bournemouth have been flying and this weekend will be an important one for us.
“It’s another tough game and they are one of the in-form teams in the country. They are a very well organised side but we have to go there and try and get three points.”
Speaking to the official website after Town’s 4-0 win over Carlisle on Saturday, the Captain says that three points were the most important aspect of the victory.
“It would have been nice (to score five goals) because you don’t get to see them very often,” he said. “It’s not often you get two 5-0 wins back-to-back at home and certainly the way we’ve been playing it could have been more than five but a win is a win. Three points is what’s important and I think we went out and thoroughly deserved the win.
“Our good away form has helped. Losing a couple of games at home knocked our confidence a bit and we were going away from home and getting results so I think that helped us to keep believing and it’s certainly shown now.
“We’ve got to take every game as it comes and the gaffer doesn’t let us look beyond our next game. We’ve got a good build up Monday to Friday looking at the opposition we’re going to play and when you focus on watching that team you do give them a lot more respect. That’s been our key: going into every game really professionally, really thinking about everything and putting it through on the pitch.”
