Swindon Always Play Attractive Football

28 February 2014

Mark Cooper prides himself on producing open, attacking football

Although Swindon Town have injury concerns of their own, with the likes of Ryan Mason, Alex Pritchard and Nile Ranger all struggling for fitness, Steve Davis says that the Wiltshire club still possess an impressive squad.

Steve Davis has been an admirer of the way Swindon boss Mark Cooper has got his side to play football the right way. Swindon defeated Crewe 5-0 at the County Ground back in August but Davis says that his team have improved considerably since that early part of the season.

Ahead of tomorrow’s clash at the Alexandra Stadium, Steve Davis told “Swindon reportedly have some players missing of their own, but you never really know until you see the team-sheet.

“I’ve read that the likes of Mason and Pritchard could be injured and that would be a blow for them because we know what good players they are. Nile Ranger has also been struggling with a hamstring injury.

“They have enough quality in their squad to fill in those gaps and have quality throughout their squad. They have had a good season and like Port Vale last week they will be thinking they have an outside chance of a play-off place.

“They play good football and base their game on ball retention. They play the same way under Mark and they will come to our stadium and play good attacking football, so it should be a good game.

He added: “Mark has always been shrewd in the loan market and obviously they have a link with Tottenham, so we know it will be a really good challenge and a decent game for the fans.”
