Swindon Town Boss Phil Brown spoke to the local press in the wake of our 5-2 win over Melksham Town earlier today.

Here are the key points from what he had to say...


"You are looking for patterns of play, you are looking for a little bit of confidence from the lads and passing ability and inter-linking play between units and individuals.

"I was well impressed first-half and there was more fluidity, there was more movement and there was more creativity.

"Everybody looks at scorelines but, with all due respect to the opposition, we should be scoring goals. 

"We have done and there is lots to like and admire about the games and about winning two out of two.

"It means nothing to me.

"I just want to get twenty, twenty-five players if I possibly can ready for action come August 4th."


"In pre-season you are looking for players to come through unscathed and that is the only negative from today.

"Rico went down clutching his shoulder and had to come off.

"It looks as though that he could be out for a few weeks.

"We'll have to find out what the scan is saying, what the x-ray is saying and he'll probably miss the Spain trip.

"If it isn't so severe then he could start his rehab whilst he's back in Swindon."
