Colkett Feels Millwall Win Can Be A Springboard To Greater Things

29 March 2017

Charlie Colkett has revealed that Saturday’s dramatic 1-0 victory over Millwall has given the whole club a massive lift heading into the final six games of the season.


Conor Thomas’ last-gasp strike defeated The Lions and gave Town a huge three points in their battle for survival.


And Colkett believes that victory could well prove to be the spark his side needs to string together a run of results in order to retain their Sky Bet League One status.


“We really are still on a massive high from Saturday and it was so important to have got the three points,” he told swindontownfc.co.uk.


“It has given us another confidence boost and it has given us the chance to keep that belief going.


“It has lifted the mood in the camp and it is exactly what we needed so we’re just looking forward to the next game now and hopefully we can continue this run.


“To score in the last minute was brilliant and we fully deserved it. We dominated the game and we had a lot of the possession.


“You could say we got the bit of luck we needed but it was an excellent goal from Conor Thomas, who fully deserved it.


“He stepped in at the last minute and took his chance really well.


“We had to give the likes of Steve Morison and Lee Gregory respect because they have proven how good they are but we shut up shop and I thought we were class at the back.


“Dion Conroy had a lot to do especially and he was excellent as well as the other defenders and Lawrence Vigouroux was huge in goal.


“We deserved the win.”


Colkett then heaped praise on Conor Thomas who impressed hugely against The Lions, despite being chucked into the Starting XI at the very last minute.


“It proves that you need the whole squad at times like this and you need everyone to stick together,” he continued.


“Conor trains very well every single day and he’s a good professional, so as soon as he stepped in he took his chance and it was great for him to pop up with the winner right

when we needed it.

“We were so pleased for him and the win was just what we needed. We needed that lift, we needed that boost and it has given us the confidence to want to keep producing these wins.”


Finally, having got a regular run of games under his belt during his time at The County Ground, Colkett feels he is reaching the peak of his powers.


“I’m enjoying my football more than ever,” he added.


“I’m playing week in and week out and I’m enjoying the challenge at the moment. It is a test of my character but I’m loving it.”
