Raphael Rossi-Branco hailed the 1-0 victory away at Fleetwood on Saturday as a “massive” moment in Town’s season.
Nicky Ajose struck late on to make it two wins on the bounce and breathe new life into the Reds’ push for survival, and Raphael is confident his side have what it takes to retain their Sky Bet League One status.
“The win changes everything now and coming to Fleetwood and getting the three points is just massive,” he told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.
“The game-plan was unbelievable and we took all the information Luke (Williams) gave to us and we were able to express ourselves really, really well on the pitch.
“We had a good chance in the first-half and we created a lot of chances and kept another clean sheet, which is really, really important.
“Keeping clean sheets give the frontmen confidence and we know what Nicky (Ajose) is about and we know what Jon (Obika) is about.
“We are still fighting and it is not over. We’ve still got a lot to do with five games left and we need to go step by step now.
“We’ve got everything to stay up.
“We are one game away from potentially getting out of the relegation zone and hopefully the fans will be behind us at home next week.”
Rapha has formed an impressive partnership alongside Dion Conroy in recent weeks and the towering centre-back went on to praise his colleague.
“Dion is a great, great player and he works really hard,” he continued.
“The connection between us has been good and he’s learning every game and I’m trying to help him on the pitch as we go along.”
Finally, Rossi-Branco is now preparing for what looks set to be a huge clash against MK Dons at The County Ground next Saturday.
“We’re back at home next week and it is probably one of our biggest games of the season,” he added.
“If we were able to get out of the relegation zone then the pressure goes away and we will be able to express ourselves more, so next week’s game is massive.”
