SWINDON Town captain Dion Conroy says it would be ‘massive’ if Richie Wellens’ men could record the club’s first ever win away at Cheltenham when the two sides meet this afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

The two clubs share identical nicknames – ‘The Robins’ – and lie fairly close on a map of the United Kingdom, but something that is not similar are their records in the fixture.

Cheltenham have won nine of the 14 meetings in all competitions since the first fixture in September 2002 while Wellens outfit have won just two.

Swindon’s woeful record at the Jonny Rocks Stadium is a statistic that many fans feel is long overdue to change, and the club’s current captain believes it can be achieved tomorrow if the expected high levels of performance are produced by each visiting player.

Conroy said: “It would be massive if we can win for the fans, but the main thing for us is to get the three points and keep building a positive and consistent run of form.

“It would be a massive bonus if we can win, but I’m sure if we put in a good performance we will be rewarded.

“Everyone is looking forward to tomorrow and we’re looking forward to seeing all our fans there.”

Before the midweek defeat to Northampton, Swindon were sat in pole position in the embryonic stages of the League Two season.

Conroy says Tuesday night’s disappointment has already been dealt with by the squad and the 23-year-old has backed his side to play their way back onto the winning trail, starting this afternoon.

He said: “The gaffer has got the players in that he wants to have, and you can see that in the way that we play football.

“The style we’re playing is very exciting, the ball is on the floor a lot of the time which is good.

“I think if you look at the teams that have been promoted over the last few years out of this league, most of them have played good football, so I’m excited for the season and I think everyone is hoping we can bounce back tomorrow.”
