Thompson: A great feeling

29 March 2014

LOUIS Thompson says that it took him a while to get his breath back after netting Town's winner against Sheffield United.

Speaking after the 2-1 win at The CG, the Town Academy product was delighted to have scored his first senior goal and described the celebrations afterwards. 

"I imagined it (my first goal) to be a screamer but it wasn't quite that," he said. "I'll take any goal as it comes! My first touch gave me some time to pick my spot but it didn't quite go where I wanted it to go.

"The celebrations were too mad. Once I realised it and I'd come down, it took a while to get my breath back. It got madder seeing Nath sprint around the pitch to celebrate. It was a great feeling to score and a great win for the boys."

The midfielder then reflected on the performance that saw Swindon claim all three points.

He continued: "We despatched them pretty well. The second half wasn't as nice as the first half but we have ground the last few games out proving now that we are a force to be reckoned with and we have surprised a few people.

"I always thought we had another goal in us with the pace we had on the pitch. They were quite open, pushing for a winner, then we caught them and defended pretty well. It was a good performance all round."
