Flint targets revenge
ADEN Flint says Swindon Town are out for revenge when they make the trip to Brentford this evening.
The Robins go to Griffin Park looking to make up for a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Bees in the corresponding clash between the sides at the County Ground in November.
Back then a second-half Clayton Donaldson goal was enough to secure the west London outfit all three points as Uwe Rosler’s side steamed up the League One table.
Now, however Brentford are on something of a slide. The Bees have won three of their last 10 games and have lost each of their last two and tonight presents a perfect chance for Flint & Co to get their own back for the loss earlier in the season.
“I think we owe Brentford from the last time they came to the County Ground and got a 1-0 win. We owe them for that,” he said.
“We’ve got the top teams in the last remaining games and it speaks for itself - if you win those games you’re going to get automatic promotion. But we take it one game at a time and we’re hoping to win every game.
“It’s pretty tight but we’ve got a few places to go away against the top teams. If we do well in those games and take the form into those games that we’ve had this year I think we’ll be alright.”
Following the disappointment of Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Walsall, in which the visitors struck in the final minute to earn a point, Flint is backing his teammates to bounce back straight away this evening.
“All the boys were disappointed after the game,” he said. “Games like that, at home, we expect to win. We’ve just got to go again now at Brentford and kick on. We’ve had good away form this year so I think the boys will be pretty confident going into that.
“We’ve always performed better against the teams in the top half of the table. Saying that, our away form has been even better this year than it was last year. We’re looking forward to this game and the boys are confident.
“We’re good enough players to turn away form into good home form as well and that’s what we need to start doing to have a good chance of getting automatic promotion.
“The expectation is always the same, we’re expected to win every game and that’s what I think all the boys will tell you. The fans at Coventry came in big numbers and they spurred us on to win that game so let’s hope it’s the same at Brentford.”
