Speaking before Saturday’s clash with Fleetwood Town at SN1, the on-loan Norwich midfielder also admitted that it had been a difficult past week for players and management.
“It’s been a tough period for us,” he told the media on Thursday. “I don’t think I’ve experienced that in a Swindon shirt before - two comprehensive losses. The first you can get your head around. Wigan are a very good side but the second is totally unacceptable. We feel the same pain as them (the fans). It may not seem like that at the time but we’re hurt and embarrassed and we’ll do everything in that power to put that right.
“It (the defeat at Scunthorpe) can rally the troops and you want to prove a point. I think that’s the way it’s gone with us. I don’t think we could have had a harsher lesson and I’m looking forward to Saturday.”
He added: “It happened at Fleetwood last time and we went on a little winning streak and I think we did it at Cheltenham last year as well - this happens in football. It’s a freak result and it has given us a bit more ‘oomph’. I’m looking forward to seeing how the boys react on Saturday.
“This isn’t a time to cower within ourselves. This is a time to stand up and make sure the fans are proud of us and pay back somewhat what we didn’t show the previous week.”
