Swindon Town have launched the #PackTheCG campaign for Saturday’s huge game against MK Dons and we will have exclusive interviews with a number of players and coaching staff throughout this week.
Tonight, First-Team Coach Ross Embleton discusses just how important a role the Town faithful will have to play this weekend.
“It is vitally important to have plenty of support and I’ve been involved in one or two games where The County Ground has had a bigger crowd than the norm and it really is important,” he told swindontownfc.co.uk.
“The big moments in the game and the vital periods when perhaps we are under pressure or we are chasing a goal, those moments can be inspired by that extra bit of backing.
“The current crowd we get at the moment support us very, very well and are very vocal, but the more people you’ve got in the stadium making more noise, then the better atmosphere we create.
“I came to the Play-Off Semi-Final against Sheffield United at The County Ground and the atmosphere was incredible.
“The backing and the support that night was massive for the team and we all know how important these last five games are to the club and to the team, so we hope by getting a bigger crowd in then we can play our part in making sure that everybody gets a good experience.”
MK Dons are on a good run of form currently and Embleton isn’t expecting them to ease off, despite the fact that they have already secured their place in the Sky Bet League One for next season.
“Robbie Neilson has been in place for a brief period and he’s building something so his players aren’t going to take their foot off the gas,” he added.
“I’m sure he will be making decisions on players’ futures in terms of whether or not they are still going to be at the club next season, so they still have that motivation to go and play.
“We’ve got an even bigger motivation to go and get the points to make sure we are playing against MK Dons next season.
“We all know how important it is and the next five games are all cup finals.
“We need to go out and give it everything we’ve got, get the three points and then worry about the next game.”
