BROADBENT: WE WANT TO CREATE SOME CONSISTENCY

21 February 2019

Tom Broadbent has called for a continuation of Swindon’s good form as they look for their third win in a row, his fourth since joining in January.

Broadbent joined ahead of Town’s January trip to Tranmere and, since then, has won three out of his four games.

The 27-year-old centre half kept his first clean sheet in the latest of those wins against Forest Green and wants more of the same at home in the upcoming fixtures at SN1 and feels that consistency can come from the competition in the squad, especially at the back.

“Hopefully, we can stay consistent and keep out home form up with two games at home coming up.

“I feel settled in now – I’ve played four games. Four games, three wins and I’ll take that. Dion (Conroy) came in and did really well in the last two games. I got comfortable with Woolfie (Luke Woolfenden) but the change has been OK and it’s been really easy for me with both of them.

“The competition is good. If you don’t have that then you get complacent so it’s needed.”

The former-military man and his team-mates had a ten days in between games with some choosing to spend their weekends abroad but Broadbent chilled out and inspected the League Two table, it seems.

“I’ve just chilled out to be honest – it was my birthday the other day so chilled and saw the family. I was going to go away but when you go away you don’t really relax so I think I needed the rest to be honest.

“I had a look at the table and we need to win on Saturday to keep in and amongst it but if results go our way it can look pretty good.

“Grimsby are on the same as us at the moment – they’ve won their last four so they’re in good form as well as us so it’ll be an interesting game.”
