Gladwin - We're looking to bounce back

Ben Gladwin knows the mission for Swindon Town this weekend is to bounce back when they take on Northampton Town.

The Reds head to Sixfields on Saturday - 2pm Kick-Off - for some EFL Sky Bet League Two action where they will be looking to bounce back.

Despite having their fair share of chances in the second-half, Town slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Port Vale last weekend with Tyreece Simpson's second goal of the season proving to be scant consolation.

It has still been a very positive start to the season, however, and the Reds boast an excellent away record so far this season having yet to taste defeat in the league away from SN1.

As a result, tomorrow will be about bouncing back and Gladwin looked ahead to what will be a tough test with iFollow Town.

"Saturday was very disappointing and we had a meeting this week where we discussed how important it is to bounce back," Gladwin told exclusively.

"It has been a positive start.

"We're a group that has been thrown together and the odds are against us slightly, so it is important to remember that it has been a positive start and we'll just look to bounce back on Saturday.

"We want to get a result on Saturday and try and keep the momentum going.

"It is going to be a tough one this weekend.

"Every game is tough and we experienced that on Saturday. We weren't quite at the races but we still played some good football and we deserved something out of it.

"As long as we're at it and we're playing our football and giving everything we've got, then we'll be okay.

"We tend to try and worry about ourselves first and foremost, we obviously give respect to the opposition but we know we just have to be at the races."

Town will be backed by a sold out away gathering at Sixfields on Saturday, and Gladwin knows the Town faithful can prove to be all the difference. 

"They've been amazing," Gladwin continued.

"I know the year we got to the Playoff Final they were great, but it is as good as I ever remember.

"They've been amazing, it has given the boys great support and we're lucky and we all appreciate that a lot."
