SWINDON Town assistant manager Tommy Wright refused to get carried away after his side’s late victory over Crewe Alexandra on Saturday and challenged his side to back the win up when they go to Lincoln City on Tuesday night.

After going a goal down inside the first five minutes, Town were handed an equaliser on a plate moments later courtesy of Travis Johnson’s own goal.

David Artell’s men largely dominated the fixture at the County Ground, though the visitors’ inefficiency in front of goal would ultimately be Crewe’s biggest downfall as substitute Scott Twine calmly stroked home the winner in the 94th minute.

The win which lifted Town out of the bottom four – while important – should not be overstated, according to Wright, and might not mean as much if John Sheridan’s men resume their poor run in the next few games.

Wright said: “It’s one win, we don’t know what it will do until the next game, but I think it was a vital win.

“A lot of the results were good for us involving teams down the bottom with them getting beat.

“It’s an old cliché, but you’ve got to take it game by game. It will help with confidence though, and it will give the players a bit of belief that they beat a good team, and also the way they did it.

“We weren’t the better team – we’re not hiding that – but we dug in and kept going after we went a goal behind, and we end up winning it in injury time, so I have to give great credit to the players.”

Victory over Crewe also made it two wins in four games for Town – something Wright believes could help boost confidence among a group of players who are still getting to know each other after a busy January transfer window.

The Town coach went on to highlight the importance of scoring late goals in terms of a team’s winning mentality when fighting for a cause.

He said: “A win like this does prove that if you can stick in games, you can end up winning them.

“If you notice all the successful teams in the world, how many late goals do they score? It’s massive. They believe that they’re a winning team, and they’ve got to keep winning and they’ve got to keep going.

“Last year, we always believed we were going to win, and we have to try and get that belief back before the end of this season.”
