WELLENS: WE'RE GROWING

Richie Wellens said his side are constantly improving following the season’s best away performance against Bury on Saturday.

The 1-3 win at Gigg Lane against a team who, before Saturday, had been in the automatic promotion spots backed up a comfortable 4-0 win at home against Morecambe the week before.

Kaiyne Woolery scored two and set up a third, tapped home by Theo Robinson in a fantastic performance.

“We’re growing, we’re definitely growing.

“Everything that we are putting into the players, they are taking that onboard.

“As a manager, when you look at opposition – especially the top teams – you think ‘we can do that, and that’. When the players take onboard what we have worked on in the last two or three weeks and you see it here (at Bury) and against Morecambe, it gives you great satisfaction.”

“I thought Kaiyne (Woolery) was excellent, he’s a massive threat. He needs to improve when he goes on the outside, but he’s scored three in two now.

“He’s quick, strong and has power in both feet. We stressed to him three or four games ago that he was frustrating us with his lack of attempts and desire to get goals.

“We asked him to take chances more and to shoot more. His second goal wasn’t a brilliant finish, it took a little deflection.

“But if you get in those positions, anything can happen when you are so close to the goal.

“He’s took our advice onboard, and now he’s earning praise. Everyday you pick up the news and see that Swindon have won and Kaiyne Woolery has scored, it’s good for his reputation.”
