Kasim: We could have won it

9 September 2013

TOWN midfielder Yaser Kasim admits that Swindon could have claimed all three points at MK Dons on Saturday had Nathan Byrne not been shown a straight red. 

The former Brighton man says that before Town were reduced to ten men, they had the upper hand.

“After the goal we thought we were going to start controlling possession,” he said. “There is a feeling that we could have won it.

“It was a bit difficult (after the red card) there is more space and they kept the ball. We then make more mistake because we’re tired. The adjustment was hard but we tried to keep the pace and on a hot day it was hard.

“We had a measure of the control and we felt good when we got back into the changing room then under the circumstances it changed.” 

The midfielder has been virtually ever-present for Town so far this term and explained that he feels comfortable in Swindon’s new system of play.

“The way the team is set up to play suits me,” he explained. “The way the manager takes the training sessions it’s very much what I enjoy and obviously it helps that I know the players. Once you know them and play with them you can understand them and it helps you gel a little bit better. 

“We’re getting better as a team. We get challenges every game and we want to correct them and get better and we’re doing that. We’re always facing the challenges ahead of us but we’re finding the problems and solving them.”
