Harry Smith says Town can ill-afford to take Crawley lightly on Saturday if they are to continue their good start to the season.
Harry Kewell’s side will arrive in Wiltshire rock bottom of the Sky Bet League Two table after losing their opening three games.
Town, on the other hand, are sitting pretty in first place but Smith is of the opinion that it is far too early to be taking too much notice of the form guide and he knows his side will have to be at their best if they are to secure their first home win of the season tomorrow.
“We’ve had a positive start to the season so far with seven points from a possible nine and we’re happy with that, other than the two cup games,” he told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.
“We’re looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully we will get the first win at home.
“We’ve got back-to-back home games now and we’ve travelled a lot and racked up a few miles already this season, so it will be nice to have two home games on the bounce.
“It has also been nice not to have a Tuesday game so that the gaffer can work on what he wants to work on and we’ve done a lot more shape work in preparation for Crawley.
“It is a bit of a transition period for Crawley with a new manager but we would be silly to take them lightly.
“It is early on in the season, no one really pays attention to the league table at this stage and it is another game and one we have to concentrate on.
“If we’re not at our best then we will get beaten but hopefully we will be at our best and we can carry on this run.”
“We’re looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully get the first win at home. We’ve got back-to-back home games now and we’ve travelled a lot and racked up a few miles already this season, so it will be nice to have two home games on the bounce."
Smith is on a season-long loan from Millwall and he’s loving his football at SN1 so far, while he is relishing the competition for places in the forward department.
“I love it here and the lads, the gaffer and all the staff have been great and I couldn’t have asked for a better bunch,” he continued.
“Hopefully I can grab the first goal soon!
“We’ve got Noz (Luke Norris) who has been fantastic recently, myself, we’ve got Kaiyne (Woolery) who has made an immediate impact and we’ve got Mulls (Paul Mullin) who can play up there, so we’ve got plenty of options.
“It is good to have healthy competition.”
