WOOLFENDEN: WE'LL NEED TO BE PATIENT

4 April 2019

Luke Woolfenden believes Swindon will need to be patient when Yeovil visit the Energy Check County Ground this weekend.

Woolfenden echoed the thoughts of his manager that it may be a case of keeping the ball for long periods and waiting for the right chance to come along, in a similar fashion to Town’s 4-0 thrashing of Morecambe.

The Ipswich loanee believes that patience and a clinical edge will see the Robins through:

“It’s a matter of being clinical really – a lot of teams, since the Gaffer has come in, have sat in and let us keep the ball. You have to be patient with it really – you don’t have to score with every attack. That’s what we were getting wrong at the start of the season.

“We can keep the ball, tire them out, moving it side to side, and from that a chance will come, we just have to take it.”

The 20-year-old centre back was asked about the average age of the current back four with Dion Conroy the oldest of the four at the weekend against Bury, at 23-years-old.

“I think it’s been young all season really. If you think back to when Sid (Nelson) was here, it was like that. We all help each other – I don’t think the age matters. If you’re good enough, you’re old enough. I think, if anything, it’s better for the way the Gaffer wants to play because we’ve all come through academies and playing this way is what academies do.

“If you’re centre back and you have a diag(onal) on lock and the rest of your game is up to scratch then you can play at the very top so having that in your locker is important.”
