LUKE Woolfenden is confident Swindon Town can put the horror of Saturday’s home defeat to Bury behind them as they prepare to face Yeovil Town’s six-shooters this weekend.

Woolfenden netted his first senior goal in the 2-1 loss to the Shakers, but that was virtually the only bright spark on what was a horrendous afternoon for Phil Brown’s side, who looked dreadfully disjointed, ill at ease and off the pace at the Energy Check County Ground.

The teenage defender was as mystified as everyone else as to why Town turned in such an anaemic display, but believes he is in the right place to continue his development on loan from parent club Ipswich Town.

“We are always training to the best we can and always working hard,’’ said the 19 year old, who will spend the 2018-19 campaign in Wiltshire.

“I don’t think you can put that (Bury) performance down to the training because we have been training well.

“I have been impressed. I’ve settled in well. I’m enjoying training and working with the gaffer and his assistant. It’s a good place to be. I think we have a good season ahead of us.

“We want to make this game a blip. Just a one-off. We don’t want to get used to losing.’’

While Town were lost in a fog of their own frustration at the weekend, Yeovil were blasting a half-dozen goals at Newport County, but Woolfenden added: ““I don’t think there is any point us sitting there and dwelling on our result.

“We have to focus on changing it and next week give the fans a win.

“It’s just one of those things. We started slow. It is difficult to explain. You don’t go out there to play badly. You do your best for the fans, the team, the manager."

Both Woolfenden and fellow loan signing Sid Nelson had their work cut out dealing with a wily Bury attack last Saturday, but the partnership with the Millwall man has shown some encouraging signs.

Woolfenden added: “We compliment each other well. As the gaffer has said, Sid is more of an aggressive type of defender and I am more on the ball. I enjoy playing with Sid.

“I want to play as well as I can and next season be in the team at Ipswich, playing Championship football. And then I want to play in the Premier League like everyone does. I think I have the ability to do that. Coming here and working with the gaffer is going to help me a lot.”
