Dunne - Hard Work Is The Key

Midfielder Reflects On Recent Form

28 November 2017

Swindon Town Midfielder James Dunne says that hard work will be key to getting back on track.

Dave Flitcroft's side have suffered back-to-back defeats in the Sky Bet League Two after going down to both Grimsby and Newport County. 

Those losses brought to an end a seven-game unbeaten run and Dunne admitted that he and his team-mates have work to do.

"We've been in the video room and we've been looking at not just those two games but also the Cheltenham and Chesterfield games where we should be winning those games, but we haven't because we've conceded sloppy goals," he told swindontownfc.co.uk.

"We've been looking at that and we were out on the training ground today working on set-pieces and dealing with crosses into the box, defending them and attacking them.

"We know it isn't good enough, we know as players it isn't good enough and the only way we can get better is by working hard on the training ground.

"We have done well when it comes to bouncing back and we have to do that again now, but what we haven't done well is draw games.

"We know it isn't good enough, we know as players it isn't good enough and the only way we can get better is by working hard on the training ground."

"Our win percentage is good, it is up there but our losing percentage is 40% and that is not good enough.

"There's five games where we've conceded late goals and those five points could take you up to third or second place, so we need to be more switched on and try and cut out the silly mistakes.

"Away from home our performances have been really good but at home we haven't been good enough and we know that.

"We've been working on that and we need to improve our home form."
