Marcus Bignot was pleased that Swindon Town have begun to build up a winning mentality as they defeated Hungerford Town 2-0 in pre-season.

Swindon again failed to score in the first half but came out after the break and scored twice through Paul Glatzel and Anton Dworzak to run out comfortable winners at Bulpit Lane.

Town are now two wins from two after their opening two matches against Swindon Supermarine and Hungerford at this early stage of their preparations for the League Two season, which begins in a month's time.

Bignot said that after a season in which Swindon did not win as many games as they would have wanted, building a winning culture in the opening two games in a positive.

He said: "[It is] massive [to build a winning mentality], the football club didn't win as many matches as they would have wished for last year.

"And so, it is really important [to build that] in everything that we do, because that is what we are going to be judged on and that is what we enjoy more than anything.

"We talk about being the hardest working team when we go out there and the boys put in a real shift physically, it is another 45 minutes for them very early on in the pre-season.

"It is five training sessions and we have had two 45 minutes already, so credit to the players for how they have taken to the new programme.

"On top of that it is always nice to win and get two from two, it is a good habit to have and long may it continue."

Glatzel was on the scoresheet as he was against Supermarine to take him to three goals in two pre-season matches so far.

Bignot said that he had been very impressed with the striker and also with his strike partner for the night Harry Smith with his desire to drive standards.

He said: "It is definitely significant if you ask any nines [they want to be scoring goals].

"You saw Harry Smith, I thought that he was great in how he demanded standards today, it never fell for him in the box, the boys didn't find him or it broke down in the box because he got into some lovely positions.

"You could see that he wanted to score, Glatz[el] has got off and running, nines are nines, they want to score in training, they want to score against their children in the back garden, that is why they are nines and that is why I wasn't."

And overall, Bignot said that Swindon had made an encouraging start to their pre-season schedule.

He said: "We changed shape in the first half, so we were in a different shape in the second half, so we are looking at the group in those systems and individual performances.

"There were some good performances and that has been encouraging, 45 minutes, no injuries, and the win - I will keep going back to that winning mentality is pleasing."
