Byrne: The Boys Are Raring To Go

7 October 2014

DEFENDER Nathan Byrne says that the Town squad is raring to go against Plymouth this evening regardless of who makes Mark Cooper’s starting XI.

Swindon travel to Home Park tonight in round two of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in a clash that could see Byrne reunited with a few familiar faces.

“I know a few boys there - Marvin Morgan and Jason Banton,” he told the media at Monday’s pre-match press call. “They’ve definitely got ability. I’ve played football with Marvin all the way through the summer. We’re quite close and I know Jason from when I was at Spurs. He’s got a lot of ability so there are a lot of threats. I’ve seen (Reuben) Reid play and he’s definitely one of their main goal threats. They’ve got quality but if we stop that, we’ve got a very good chance of winning.”

He continued: “All the boys are raring to go. The lads who came in against Newport were excellent and I think we should have won there more comfortably. Whatever starting XI and boys he (Manager, Mark Cooper) brings in, we’ve got more than enough to get the job done.”
