FLOYD Taylor says the Swindon Wildcats squad know they must stay switched on for the full 60 minutes if they are start to turn three-point weekends into four-point ones in the National League.

The Cats’ two opening weekends of action in the 2019-20 season have seen them claim two points for a home win followed by an additional bonus point courtesy of a last-gasp defeat on the road.

Aaron Nell’s side actually had the chance to win both of those away games only to first lose in overtime at Hull Pirates and then in a penalty shoot-out against Telford Tigers.

Although encouraged by Swindon’s positive start to the season, forward Taylor knows they are capable of even more ahead of tonight’s home game against Bracknell Bees and tomorrow’s trip to London side Raiders.

“It has been a really good start,” said 24-year-old Taylor.

“I think everyone is looking to improve on last season and try to regain the title.

“Hopefully we can start to have a few four-point weekends. We have been close but getting three points is massive and if we can get three points every weekend, we should be right up there.

“It is hard to win every game but, at the same time, we have to learn to close games out. If we are ahead in games, we have to stay ahead and stop the other team from scoring.”

Taylor has hit the back of the net in each of the Cats’ two home games so far this season and is pleased with the early contribution he has made to the team.

“I have been quite pleased. I have got two goals in two home games, so it has been good,” said Taylor, who is appearing on the Swindon senior roster for a ninth season in a row.

“I have just got to keep pushing on – keep working and improving where I can.”
