SWINDON TOWN: Brown aims to bring down Town

First published in Sport

DONCASTER striker Chris Brown feels Swindon Town have “lost their way” in League One ahead of the sides’ clash at the County Ground tomorrow.

Brown, who has netted seven goals in 25 appearances this term including one in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy penalty shootout defeat to Crewe in midweek, recognises second-placed Donny will be in for a tough test of their promotion credentials this weekend.

However, he does not feel the South Yorkshire side will be under any extra strain when they take to the field of play at SN1.

“I’m not looking any further ahead than the Swindon game. I’ve not seen much of them this season, but I know that they made some good signings in the summer and they were one of the pre-season favourites,” he told the Doncaster Star.

“They made a good start but they have lost their way a bit recently and if we beat them on Saturday we’ll be ten points clear of them.

“I don’t think that there will be any more pressure on us because we are in the top two. Teams have been coming to the Keepmoat all season and being happy to settle for a point.”

Brown would have preferred to have gone into the game with more momentum.

Donny have won their last four league games but exit from the JPT on Tuesday followed defeat to Oldham in the second round of the FA Cup last Saturday - hardly the ideal build-up for tomorrow’s fixture.

“Not only did we want to go through in both games but you get confidence from every win and it would have been nice to go into the Swindon match having beaten both Oldham and Crewe,” he said.

“We’ve got a lot of experienced players and I think that we are a hard-working side. We’ve also got players in the team who can win games for us, such as Cotts (David Cotterill).

“We are improving all the time and we are learning how to win games at League One level and things are going well for us. As players you’ve got to believe that you can do well as there is no point otherwise in playing games.

“You have got to have that self-belief and confidence and you get that by winning tough games against the top teams and hopefully we can keep doing that.”

Going to be tough but I'm confident the two weeks will have made us look sharper and up for the 3 points. 2-0 town

Let's stuff them. Can't afford to fall ten points behind. Can't get there myself - a bit hard to travel 6,000 again - but my son and my brother will be there! COYR
