SWINDON TOWN: Practice makes perfect for Williams & Co
PLENTY of work still has to be done at Swindon Town’s training ground if the Robins are going to make a serious impression on the top six in League One, according to Andy Williams.
Town currently sit eighth in the table following successive defeats to Brentford and Notts County but have hardly fallen out of touch with leaders Tranmere, who are just seven points better off after 20 games of the campaign.
The Robins’ inconsistency is their major stumbling block at present. Swindon have failed to put together a run of three straight league wins since September, while manager Paolo Di Canio’s team have not embarked on an unbeaten run of more than three matches in the same period.
Williams, who partially blamed himself for Town’s latest loss at Meadow Lane on Saturday, has admitted Swindon still have plenty of rough edges which need to be ironed out.
When asked what the squad’s genuine ambitions were for the remainder of the campaign, he told the Advertiser: “It’s a tricky one. It’s obviously what we put our minds to.
“I think there is a lot of work that needs to be done and I think everyone knows that we’ve got to work as hard as we possibly can so we can get up to where we want to be.
“At the moment the league table doesn’t lie and that is something said often in football. At the moment we’re eighth so we need to be doing a lot better than what we have been doing so far to get to where we’d all like to be.”
