Olly Lancashire said there was anger in the dressing room following Town’s away defeat to Crewe Alexandra.

Joe Romanksi turned Charlie Kirk’s effort into his own net on the half hour mark, and that was enough to seal victory for the Railwaymen.

Swindon failed to score for the second match in a row with Lancashire admitting that the result was a big disappointment for the team.

“There was frustration, disappointment, and a bit of anger as well from the dressing room” the 29-year-old said.

“We came here with the aim of getting three points, and obviously to leave with nothing is very disappointing.

“When you come to Crewe, you can come here and try to bully them, but we sort of played them at their own game and that’s not what we came here to do, but obviously the result here is a big disappointment.”

Despite their run of three away clean sheets being ended by Crewe, Lancashire feels that Swindon’s struggle in front of goal is the issue that needs addressing on the training ground.

“I thought we started well and then maybe got a little sloppy, it just seems to be the final pass.

“We get into the final third, but then it's just that last little bit, we lose composure.

“I'm sure the gaffer will work on it again this week - it's back to back games where we haven't scored, but we'll be working hard to come out the other side to score goals.

“We need to be working hard, making sure that everyone’s on it and finding a way to improve.”

Although Swindon suffered their third loss of the season, the defender believes that his side will be able to bounce back and improve for their next league fixture.

“We definitely got in the areas today, and on Saturday it was kind of similar in that respect, but the lads will come in, work hard and try to put things right Saturday. 

“We'll get back to training and hope the next result will be a positive one.”

We play our next league match at The Energy Check County Ground in the search of victory against Northampton Town on Saturday.
