Cooper: No Pressure

25 April 2014

TOWN Manager Mark Cooper believes that Town will face Notts County on Saturday afternoon not burdened by the weight any pressure. 

Speaking to the media before the weekend’s encounter, the Town boss reinforced the message that he wanted Swindon to finish the season as strongly as possible. 

“I don’t think we are that kind of a group that we get too carried away,” he said. “We just try to replicate what we have been doing which is playing quite well. We just have to win two games, finish the season as strong as we can and see what happens: that is all we can do. We are worried about playing as well as we can and what will be a very difficult game against a team that has to get a result to stay in the league.
 
“They (Notts County) are a very difficult opponent. We knew that but we are in good form at the minute and there is no pressure on us because we can’t get relegated. If things went unbelievably well, we could get in the Play-Offs but there is no pressure on us. The only pressure we have is to drive and play as well as we have been."
 
After a recent run of form which has seen the Town win six of their last seven games, Cooper declared that his charges would keep working hard.
 
“They are in a good time at present and you just have to keep reminding them about certain days like Carlisle or Oldham where we have not really performed. To win any game of football you have to earn the right to play and that’s what we have done in the games where we have been successful.
 
“It is just about reinforcing beliefs and what we believe in and what has made us have the run of success that we have had so we have to keep reinforcing that. We have to keep working at it and of course we have to look at Notts County, we have to look at the pitch before we decide how we are going to play and what the team is.”
