Kasim: An Important Goal

11 January 2014

YASER Kasim says that his goal came at an important time for Swindon during the 2-1 win over Peterborough.

The midfielder netted Town's second goal of the game before the visitors pulled one back and has vowed to continue his goal-scoring exploits having netted in successive home games.

"It was important because after the first goal we sat back a bit and they had more of the game," he admitted. "It was a relief at a very important time.

"I sat in the media room at the start of the season and no-one believed that I could score double figures. Now I've scored two at home. It's nice to have Nile (Ranger) in the team because I bounce off him quite easily and that helps because it gives me more time to get to the ball.

"When I went inside I saw someone running across so I knew I could run into the space. Those are the little things that fans don't see but that help the team."

Kasim also believes that victory over Posh sets Town up for future ties against sides in and around the Play-Off places.

He continued: "It's a big statement because we lost away to them and some of the bigger teams that are ahead of us so to get the win sets up the mentality well to play teams like Wolves and Preston.

"It's a weird one because after the first goal we sat back and didn't seem to get the balance right and win the ball and keep it. It was another challenge and we got through it."
