Preview: Colchester United

15 November 2013

SWINDON travel to the Weston Homes Community Stadium to take on Colchester United tomorrow afternoon in League One.

TOWN VIEW
Town manager Mark Cooper spoke to the media at his Thursday press call.

“When you go away from home now, it doesn’t matter how you dress it up it always seems harder so you have to stay in the game,” he said. “You have to make sure the other team know they’re in a game and that you’re not easy to get at defensively. More than anything, you have to earn the right to play. If that means, for 20 minutes, we are hard to beat and more direct then it has to be like that to enable us to create space for our better players to be able to play in.”
