SWINDON Town’s six-game winning streak in League Two will only mean something to manager Richie Wellens if the ultimate aim of earning promotion is achieved come the end of April.

Saturday’s 3-0 triumph over Grimsby Town marked only the third time Town have strung together six successive Football League wins since the turn of the millenium.

Wellens joined Dennis Wise (2006) and Paolo Di Canio (2012) in recording a maximum 18 points.

Interestingly, Town went on to win promotion in both seasons when they last achieved six wins in a row.

While encouraged, that statistic means nothing to Wellens.

He explained: “Six wins on the spin means we’ve earned 39 points from 20 games.

“We’re one point short of recording a points-per-game return that will almost definitely win you the league.

“It means we’re in a good position going into the Christmas period. But if we go into Christmas complacent, we might lose a few on the bounce and the table will change.

“We’re on a good run, but – again – the most important thing for us is the next game.”

Kaiyne Woolery was marked down as one key player behind Town’s unstoppable form of late.

The 24-year-old’s performances proved frustratingly inconsistent at the start of the season. But his movement with the ball, particularly on Saturday, caught an eye or two.

Wellens added: “In the first half at Grimsby, Kaiyne was coming in too early – he should’ve held his position wider and we then would’ve been able to slip him in a few more times.

“Apart from that, his work ethic is great, his defensive heading ability is outstanding and he is a threat.

“He gets us up the pitch and crossed the ball for one of the goals. His game has improved 10-fold and I’m really pleased with him.”
