LAWRENCE Vigouroux believes that Town were unlucky not to get anything from Monday’s trip to high-flying Burton Albion.
Speaking to the media after the game, the on-loan Liverpool man was also full of praise for his opposite number, Jon McLaughlin.
“We were more than good enough against the team that are near the top of the league,” he said. “It’s disappointing that we’ve not got anything when we were worth at least a point, if not all three.
“I didn’t have a chance really (with the penalty). We tried to do our homework on him. We’ve seen he’s gone right three times, left three times so it was just a guessing game and he won it. We were desperately unlucky not to get anything from the game.”
He added: “It was an unbelievable save - I thought it was in. I was celebrating already then saw him (McLaughlin) tip it over the bar. We’ve just got to go again at Port Vale. It will be a tough game but we’ve got a great group of lads.”
With Town’s 2015 fixture programme now over, Vigouroux admitted that recent performances will give Swindon plenty of confidence going into the new year and the remainder of the season.
“We’ve got our identity now, a good style of play and if the fans can buy into it and believe in us we can do anything we want,” he said. “I think we can keep going and go into the new year full of confidence. We’ve come to a team that’s near the top of the league and we’ve matched them but we’ll bounce back on Saturday against Port Vale.”
Finally, Vigouroux reserved the last word for the travelling Town fans, with close to 1,000 in attendance at the Pirelli Stadium.
“They were behind us all game and I really appreciate the fans - that came out tonight,” he said. “I just really hope that we can bring another big following to Port Vale and they can cheer us on to victory.”
