Lancashire Hails "Very Pleasing" Win At Rovers

Skipper Thrilled With Friday Night's Success

23 September 2017

Olly Lancashire felt Town were clear and deserved victors after securing a 2-0 success away at Forest Green Rovers on Friday night.

Goals from the Captain and Matty Taylor made it four wins out of five away league games for The Reds and Lancashire felt his side were good value for their win.

"There were times where we had to have a good structure about us and trust the boys upfront to come up with a bit of magic," he told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.

"We created quite a few chances looking back on it but they didn't really fall for us and to be fair to Forest Green they made a couple of good blocks. 

"We were always confident that if we kept going until the end then we would get the win and 2-0 away from home is very pleasing.

"We've got a good honest group of lads that take on board what the manager wants from us and we were very professional in our game-plan.

"The lads have been great at implementing those game-plans and we had the perfect one on Friday night and the boys executed that very well.

"To get the three points and a clean sheet is what we wanted."

"We were always confident that if we kept going until the end then we would get the win and 2-0 away from home is very pleasing."

Lancashire was also happy to have scored such an important goal in-front of the Sky cameras and be able to celebrate with the brilliant away following.

"It is always nice to score and it was a little bit more special being live on TV," he continued.

"It was also a local derby and I thought our fans more or less turned it into a home game. The fans have been great all season and I thought they were very good and very vocal on Friday.

"It was nice to be able to send them home happy."

Finally, Lancashire was full of praise for Matty Taylor who came off the bench to contribute a goal and an assist.

"Tails is quality and his CV speaks for itself," he added.

"He obviously came in late in the transfer window and he hasn't been here for long, but he's a very popular member of the squad and it was great for him to come on and get an assist and a goal. 

"It also shows the strength we have got within the squad. If you looked at our bench on Friday night then we are very, very strong now."
