Swindon Town Women manager Mike Cook says he was pleased with the response from his players in their latest pre-season test, having come from behind to secure a 3-2 victory against Swansea on Sunday.

“We were really pleased yesterday,” said Cook.

“They [Swansea] were good and of the standard we’re expecting in our league,” the manager said of Sunday’s opponents. “I would compare them to a top three or four team in our division.

Despite sealing the win - after trailing 2-1 early in the second half - Cook insisted that, for his players, the minutes were just as crucial at this stage.

“Fitness was just as important,” the manager said. “And winning of course is a great habit to get into going into the season in a few weeks time.

Looking ahead to next weekend’s penultimate friendly, Cook added, “Oxford will be similar to Wolves where we won’t have as much possession in the ball and will get used to working in our shape.”
