SWINDON’S Jekyll and Hyde start to life in the bottom tier continued this week as David Flitcroft’s side comfortably beat promotion chasing Luton Town at Kenilworth Road before falling to a disappointing loss at Notts County on Tuesday night.

For a Town fan, inconsistent performances are nothing new.

Finding some level of winning consistency is something that’s eluded most Town sides in recent years, the focus will be all on Swindon’s ability to bounce back after their poor showing at Meadow Lane.

It’s vital Swindon don’t let this result linger, as a defeat against Stevenage on Saturday will see Town losing four of their last five matches.

However, a win will see Flitcroft’s side earning six points out of a possible nine which is a good return considering two of those games were away from home.

Lawrence Vigouroux was interviewed by the media after the game last Saturday about Town’s impressive win, and his thoughts on some recent criticism coming his way after Town’s two dismal home defeats.

He responded in a constructive manner, which is to be expected, but I was shocked there had been any question marks over his performances or commitment to Town since the start of the season.

So far in this campaign Lawrence has picked straight up from last season.

Maybe he could’ve done better with a couple of the goals against Barnet but to level any major criticism at him is beyond ridiculous.

This shows the stupid level of ‘what have you done for me lately’ attitude in football.

Some people seem to have such incredibly short memories, this guy is still our biggest asset and will be all season.

Vigouroux has shown his worth to this side, again and again, but now it’s time for some of his teammates to step up to show the Town faithful what they’re capable of - starting this weekend at the County Ground against Stevenage.
