SWINDON TOWN: Bostock happy to play the waiting game
JOHN Bostock is happy to play the waiting game as he bids to build up the match fitness necessary to hold down a place in the Town side.
The attacking midfielder made his first start of the season in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at home to Coventry, but was withdrawn after 51 minutes with Adam Rooney taking his place.
The Tottenham loanee has had to endure long spells on the sidelines during his two spells at the County Ground, but believes he needs to get a run of games to show what he is really capable of.
“Because I have not played in a little while I think I am lacking that bit of match fitness, and no matter how hard you train you can never quite get that match fitness without playing matches,” he said.
“If I can get a run of games and show the fans and the manager what I can do then I can make it my own.
“For any footballer you have to be patient and wait until the manager thinks it is right for you to play.
“Saturday was my first game in a little while, but I am ready and have been training well and I am ready if the chance comes again.
“It is always good to play, and the reason I am a footballer is because I just love playing games.
“I thought I did okay, but I am still learning my trade so I think the more I play the better I will do.”
Swindon Supermarine lost 1-0 at home to Shortwood in the Red Insure Cup last night.
