Roberts Looks Ahead

3 January 2013

WINGER Gary Roberts says that he has not adopted a New Year’s resolution but, in his words, is determined to simply 'play well and get in the team', starting with the visit of Carlisle United on Saturday.

Having made his league bow for Swindon at Brunton Park earlier on in the campaign, the summer signing told the official website on Thursday lunchtime that the three points are up for grabs against the Cumbrians.

“I think every team is there for the taking,” he said. “If we play well we can win every game we go into but in League One - you’ve seen it over the course of the season - anyone can beat anyone. 

“They’ll probably come here with a game plan but I think if we get on the front foot and work on things we’ve done this week I think we can go on and win the game.”

After coming off the bench in Tuesday’s win over Portsmouth, the winger reflected on a fine outing on a collective and on a personal level. 

“As and when you come on you try and make an impression and help the team out with the result,” he said. “Maybe in the first half we were a bit flat by our standards but to come on, to win the game 5-0 and be a part of it was good.

“Coming on as a substitute you just try and do as best as you can. If the team wins 5-0 it brings confidence to the whole group not just myself but if you win any game 5-0 then come into work the next day there’s a buzz about the place and I think all the boys will be pretty confident now.

“I think that result and the one against Tranmere have been coming. We can score goals and if we’re on our A-game we can open teams up and score goals.”
