Kyle Bennett has reflected on his time at SN1 so far and says that the team’s form is a few wins away from putting Swindon in with a chance of making the play-offs.

Bennett made his full debut for the Town on Saturday in the 1-1 draw with fellow chasing-pack members, Grimsby Town.

He replaced the injured Michael Doughty and impressed in front of 6,434-strong crowd at the County Ground.

Speaking after the game on Saturday, the Bristol Rovers loanee said that the talent is there to mount a push for the to seven.

“There’s some very, very, very talented boys here. It’s a young squad and everyone can always get better but I think we’ve definitely got the capabilities for mounting a push for the play-offs. People probably don’t want to talk about it but I think we have the capability.

“We’ve only lost one in our last eight – that’s play-off form, a good run for any team. I think we just need to string a few wins together.

“Putting wins together is difficult – there’s a lot of resolute sides but we just need to keep mentally strong.”

On his personal performance against the Mariners, Bennett said:

“I didn’t get on the ball as much as I would have liked – it was a battling performance. It was OK. Keshi and I swapped roles in training quite a few times – the Gaffer decided to go with me in the midfield. He just told me to be a free spirit and when we haven’t got it, to pick up spaces and players.”
