One of the most eye-catching deadline day signings from Swindon was the arrival of forward Luke Jephcott on loan from Plymouth Argyle.

With last season’s top goal scorer Harry McKirdy moving to Hibernian in the dying embers of the window, there is a feeling of reliance on Jephcott to fill the void which the former Town fan favourite left.

The Argyle loanee admitted that the style of play equipped under head coach Scott Lindsey was a factor in making the switch.

“The style here suits me down to the ground really,” said Jephcott speaking to the media on Thursday.

“We try to play lots of football, like I was used to at Plymouth.”

At only 22 years old, he has already made 108 appearances in the Football League, scoring 33 times.

A goalscoring record like that at such a young age shows if played to his strengths, goals will come, and he believes plying his trade at Swindon is the best place for that.

“We control games well here, we move the ball down and often get it wide with lots of shots and crosses and that fits me as a player.”

The Welshman admitted that chances come fewer and far between in the league above and feels more chances could come his way in League Two.

“I think there’s more of a clinical edge in League One and you know you’re not going to get as many chances in front of goal.

“However, in this division I feel like you find yourself getting a few more in a match which helps, as it showed on Tuesday.”

Many people will be seeing this signing as a potential like for like replacement for the recently departed McKirdy, however, Jephcott arrives as a very different style of striker but the natural goalscoring instinct remains.

Luckily for Lindsey, his side offers a variety of attacking options from the front line and the midfield who can easily pop up on the scoresheet, Jacob Wakeling a fine example.

The former Wales under-21 international’s loan contract with Town does include an option to buy clause, so if it goes well for all parties considered this campaign, we could see Jephcott at the County Ground for seasons to come.

“It’s a nice town and I’ve settled in great, I’m really enjoying it so far.”
