Gaffer Looking Forward To Friday Night Football

Dave Flitcroft Previews Tonight's Game

15 December 2017

Swindon Town Boss Dave Flitcroft has insisted that playing tonight hasn't altered his preparation too much.

The Reds are in Sky Bet League Two action against Colchester United this evening at The Energy Check County Ground (7:45pm Kick-Off). 

"It has not really affected us," Flitcroft said.

"We've just changed the training week and calculated it.

"When you look at the model at Colchester they have got one of the youngest teams on paper.

"They've got a Category One Academy and they've got a good model - they sell players and move players on.

"The manager has really got them going, they've found a way of playing and they are in good form in the league. 

"It wasn't a great start but they've stayed with the plan and it has come to fruition."

And Flitcroft is all for the club switching this fixture to tonight in order to get more fans through the door. 

"It is certainly worth trying," he added.

"It is that time of year where people take advantage of doing something different on a Saturday and a Sunday and it is an ever-changing world.

"Night matches on a Tuesday are difficult sometimes because you've got school and you've got to take the kids to different places, but Friday night might give you the chance to take your lad or daughter and go have that time with them or families can maybe go. 

"It could a night with the lads and a few beers but, certainly, everything is worth exploring because it is an ever-changing world.

"It is a good opportunity for us to have a look at it."
