LT: Hope we can impose ourselves on the game

11 March 2016

LOUIS Thompson is hoping for a repeat of the controlled performance that saw Town pick up all three points against Doncaster, when Millwall come to the County Ground on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking to the media ahead of the weekend clash, the midfielder declared that he was looking forward to a good game against the promotion-chasing Lions.

“I think the belief is back in the team,” he declared. “Millwall come here off the back of good results as well. They’ve got their own hopes and aspirations and so have we. I think if we can impose ourselves on the game like we did against Doncaster I don’t believe there will be many people in this league that can live with us and I’m hoping we can do that on Saturday - that’s what we’re training towards. It should be a good game. I’m looking forward to it.”

Town’s fixture at Oldham Athletic last Saturday was postponed due to the snowy conditions in the north-west of the country but the on-loan Norwich man took the positives from a break from action.

“It was massively disappointing for us – for me personally and for the team,” he admitted. “When you’re winning and in a bit of good form you just want to keep winning and carry on playing but I also think rest is important coming into this busy period. You go into this busy period starting with Millwall and the boys will be ready for that. I don’t see the break being a hindrance although it was frustrating. We should be fully rested and focused on Saturday.”

Finally, the STFC academy graduate reserved the final word for Luke Williams and the news that Town’s Head Coach had put pen to paper on a five-year deal earlier in the week.

“He’s had a massive part in where I am today,” he said. “As a player that takes a vested interest (in the club) when I’m not at Swindon I think the fans should be delighted with the length of term he’s been given and that he’s committed his future here. He’s an incredible coach. The boys are delighted that he’s going to be staying.”
