VIDEO: WELLENS PREVIEWS BURY TEST

28 March 2019

Richie Wellens wants to see the same level of quality as last weekend as his side travel to League Two high-flyers Bury.

Swindon were in imperious form against Morecambe last time out as they cruised to a 4-0 win at the Energy Check County Ground with goals from Theo Robinson, Kaiyne Woolery, Dion Conroy and Kyle Bennett.

Wellens expects a stern test either way especially with the Shakers sitting top of the ‘goals scored’ charts in League Two:

“On the ball, I’m expecting the same quality because I think we’ve got a way of playing, which I think suits us. It’s important when the ball changes hands, that we react in the right way because they’re a good team. If we do that well, we’ll cause them problems. They score a lot of goals but they concede quite a few too – there’s no point us going there for a draw, we have to try and win.

“They’ve got a lot of players that I know of that I’ve seen for quite a few years – we should be going up there with no fear. They’ve got goals – same as all the play-off teams really.”

On the injury front, the return of Michael Doughty will not be this weekend:

“We’ll have the same squad – Michael Doughty is back out on the grass running but it’ll be too early for him. No new injuries – Lawrence Vigouroux will be back in the country so we’ll evaluate how he’s feeling. It’s probably the tougher side of the world to adapt because of jetlag. We’ll see how we go.”
