Gaffer Keen To Put Things Right At Stevenage

Flitcroft Previews Tonight's Game

30 January 2018

Swindon Town Boss Dave Flitcroft is looking for his side to right some wrongs at Stevenage this evening.

Town head back to The Lamex Stadium later (7:45pm Kick-Off) for the first-time since their 5-2 defeat in The Emirates FA Cup, and Flitcroft wants to eradicate that memory with a positive result tonight.

"We've got another game-plan against Stevenage to try and navigate," he said.

"We were poor the last time we went there so we'll go with that wound inside us and try to put it right.

"I was really disappointed as a manager and really disappointed for our supporters. Watching the FA Cup at the weekend, it is a competition I love and to not get the supporters into the next round really hurt me.

"We've got those memories but it is going to have to be a controlled focus and a controlled game-plan that will hopefully set us in good stead."

And Flitcroft admitted that rotation will come into play over the coming weeks with Town facing a gruelling schedule of six games in three weeks.

"What you can plan is getting your numbers right and getting your balance right," he added.

"There will have to be that rotation. 

"Some players can play three games in a week because they are conditioned to do that, but some players can't and they can't get up to those levels.

"We've got to monitor that and we'll do that as we go along."
