Swindon Town midfielder Ricky Aguiar was just pleased to have played his part in the Reds' 5-0 thrashing of Walsall on Tuesday night.

Aguiar scored on the stroke of half-time to double Town's lead after Louie Barry had opened the scoring, arriving on the edge of the box to score his first-ever professional goal.

Then, in the second-half, Aguiar capped off a fine team move by adding his second goal of the night, capping off what has been a fine run of performances by the midfielder.

And, in the wake of the game, he spoke to the local media to reflect on the performance against the Saddlers, as well as his own personal exploits

"I thought we were great," Aguiar said of the win over Walsall. "I thought we worked a lot harder than them, and it showed with the result.

"We wanted it a lot more than them from start to finish.

"I've scored a few of them from the edge of the area, but it was a great feeling and two goals was great. It was great build-up play for the third goal, I was running on the edge of the box and I was lucky it fell to me, but it was a great team goal. 

"It was the right decision for me to go out on loan, it was a massive confidence booster and coming back I've just fallen into my place since the New Year.

"I've been working on the physical side of things with a lot of gym work, and the loan spell helped with the physical side of things. 

"I can still improve physically, but the way we play means it is going to be one of the easiest teams to play in because of the way we move the ball."
