INJURIES to Lloyd Isgrove and Keshi Anderson mean Kaiyne Woolery can expect a busy run up to Christmas.

And while Swindon Town manager Richie Wellens couldn’t fault the forward’s work-rate in Saturday’s 1-1 FA Cup first-round draw at Cheltenham Town, he did highlight elements of Woolery’s game that he would like to see improve.

From 21 appearances this season, Woolery has scored just one goal.

That tally certainly could’ve been added to in Gloucestershire last weekend.

Two chances in the first half were squandered, while another effort on the edge of the penalty area amid Swindon’s second-half period of dominance was dragged underwhelmingly wide.

Wellens insists Woolery makes his goalscoring job much harder by avoiding the shortest route to goal when in possession of the ball – a trait the Hackney-born forward should excel at given his remarkable turn of speed.

Wellens explained: “Kaiyne needs to take the shortest route to goal. Don’t allow the defender to get back to you because you’re going out wide or allow the angle to get too difficult to score.

“He should’ve scored the first chance, which he crossed. He’s got a good finishing technique and he should make the goalkeeper work.

“He slashed at a few in the second half. But his overall work-rate was very good.

“Sometimes, he was unplayable. It’s just that final bit, that final decision.

“Does he need to cross the ball, or does he need to run? When he’s got a defender on him, there’s no catching him.”

With the above in mind, Wellens has called on Woolery to add a ruthless nature to his game – similar to what Swindon fans have witnessed Eoin Doyle repeat time and time again this term.

Becoming more ruthless could make Woolery one of Swindon’s more dangerous players.

And with Isgrove and Anderson both out for another month, the 24-year-old has been granted time to prove his worth.

“It’s that final little bit we’re looking for from Kaiyne,” said Wellens.

“Take Eoin (Doyle). He has that final element to his game, but doesn’t have the attributes Kaiyne has in other departments. We’ve got a good blend between our players.

“If we can get Lloyd (Isgrove) and Keshi (Anderson) back then we will benefit from it.”
