Ince - Getting First Town Goal Meant A Lot

Rohan Ince was over the moon to have opened his account for Town during the superb 3-1 victory against Gillingham on Tuesday night.

The in-form midfielder has made a hugely impressive start to life at The County Ground and he capped off another Man of the Match display in midweek with his first goal for the club.

Speaking exclusively to, Ince revealed just how much that strike meant to him.

“It started against Oldham at home where we had a really, really good performance, but we just couldn’t get the goals,” he said.

“We then took that confidence into Coventry away and the goals came. That lifted us as a team even more and we took it into the game against Gillingham and it really showed.

“We went down 1-0 in the first-half but we dominated the whole game and we just had that belief that we would get going. Once we got the first goal then we knew we would carry on and get another couple, so we were really pleased with that performance.

“It was the perfect time to get the equaliser because it gave us enough time to get another couple.

“Getting my first goal for Swindon meant a lot. I’ve had quite a rollercoaster year myself, not playing much at Brighton and the Court Case but I’ve always been positive throughout that period of time.

“I’m happy that it is starting to come out well for me and the goal did mean a lot to me.

“The fans were making a lot of noise on Tuesday night and it really was a pleasure playing in-front of them and get them going like we did.

“Everybody knows exactly what they have to do and each player knows their role in the team and everyone is gelling together nicely - it is showing out there on the pitch.”

Town will now look to make it three wins on the bounce when they welcome Chesterfield to SN1 on Saturday, but Ince has warned against complacency.

“The most important thing is to avoid getting complacent – that is very important,” he added.

“We can’t look at it any differently now we’ve got a couple of wins under our belt and three good performances.

“Of course, we need to take that confidence into Saturday’s game but we need to go out with the same desire, the same work-rate and the same enthusiasm that we have done in the past week.

“I’m sure we’ll do that.”
