Vigouroux - We Go Again On Saturday

24 November 2016

Lawrence Vigouroux was typically modest about his heroics during the 1-1 draw away at Southend United on Tuesday night and was just happy to have helped his side secure a vital point.

“I think I’ve played better than that but it was more important that we got the draw and we got a point at a tough place to come,” he said.

“They are on a good run here and I’m really happy for the boys. They’ve dug in and I’m just really happy.

“It shows that we’ve got a lot of character. A lot of people have questioned our character but Tuesday showed that we can dig deep at tough places and get a point.

“Overall I’m really pleased for the boys and we go again on Saturday against Bradford.

“I don’t really remember any saves to be honest, it is just a blur.

“I’m just happy that I did as much as I could to keep the ball out of the net and we go again on Saturday. It will be a tough game, they are a team in good form and we have to go and be confident and defend the way we did on Tuesday.

“If we do that then we’ll always have a chance.”

Vigouroux had a big hand in Town’s equaliser against the Shrimpers and is confident the Reds’ fortunes will now start to change for the better.

“It was a typical Swindon goal,” he added.

“We played out from the back, luckily I got the ball to Conor Thomas and he turned and then he played a wonderful ball for Jon Obika who put it in the back of the net, which is what he does best.

“If I can help out the team in that way as well it is always a bonus but, first and foremost, I’ve got to keep the ball out the back of the net.

“Hopefully we can go again on Saturday and we can get three points.

“We’ve got a lot of players out injured at the minute and a lot of key players out injured in the form of Michael Doughty, Nathan Thompson and Yaser Kasim.

“They are key players for us and once they start to come back in and we have all the squad together again, we’ll push on and we’ll be a good force in this division.

“We’ve just been unlucky with the timing of injuries and it seems like we get one then another three follow, but it is something we’ve got to deal with.

“We’ve got a young group in there and I’m only 23 but I feel like one of the experienced players and I’m trying to offer as much advice and help as I can to help the boys through what was a tough period.

“Hopefully we can turn it around on Saturday.”
