NOEL: WE'RE ON THE HUNT

12 April 2019

Assistant Manager, Noel Hunt said Swindon are still in the chase for the play-offs and said his side have done well to get to this position.

Town have drawn their last two games, against Yeovil and Newport, but are three points off the play-off positions with five games in the League Two season to play.

The Robins travel to Oldham this weekend able to go level on points with Exeter in seventh.

The Swindon assistant said:

“You should relish these times – we’ve got five games and we’re the hunters. There’s a different pressure when you’re being hunted. I’ve been in both as a player and it could be worse – we could be playing for nothing.

“The boys have done really well to get in this position so for us, we’ll put our heads on now and look forward to tomorrow.

“We knew we had the capability of it when we came in but it’s not easy – if it was everyone would be doing it so the boys have done really well. They’ve really applied themselves – I was dead proud of us on Tuesday, we dealt with the conditions and the physicality of Newport really well.

“We stuck to the test and gave them serious problems going the other way.”

Regarding injuries, Hunt updated the local press with some good news:

“We’re OK injury-wise – we’ve got no real injury issues so we’ll be OK to go. I think Canice is OK too – he got a knock to the shin but we’ll assess that again today. The rest we’re all good.

“Lawrence will be in the squad this weekend – it’s frustrating when you’re not playing but there are more that 11 players in a squad, and it takes more than the 11 to get promoted. Lawrence understands that and he’s on board.”
