SWINDON TOWN: Navarro wants more of the same
ALAN Navarro says Swindon Town are targeting at least seven points from their next three League One games.
The Robins go into their clash with Shrewsbury at the New Meadow tomorrow in a rich vein of form, having seen off Burnley, Bournemouth and Portsmouth over the course of the past seven days.
In the coming week the Robins are due to play Shrewsbury, Colchester and Bury and Navarro is hoping for the successful spell to be extended.
“We could have an exciting three games coming up where we could get seven points, maybe a possible nine points, and that’s what we’re all looking forward to now.
“Coming off the previous week when we had three defeats it was a good way to bounce back with positive wins and it sets up us nicely for the next couple of games.
”Everything’s a bit more positive this week, we’ve worked hard during the past week, the gaffer’s had a word with a couple of us and the whole feel around the place seems a bit better and the results and performances on the pitch show that.”
Town boss Paolo Di Canio has highlighted the need for his players to retain their focus this weekend as they return to the nitty gritty of the league after the defeat of Championship outfit Burnley on Tuesday.
After their previous two giant-killings in the Capital One Cup, against Brighton and Stoke, the Robins have slipped up in the league and Navarro stressed the squad is very keen to avoid another poor performance this weekend.
“We’ve spoken about it and as players we know what’s happened and we have to put that right come Saturday,” he said.
“We got a positive result against Burnley on Tuesday and we need to go away to Shrewsbury on Saturday and get one there.”
