PP POST SWINDON



Phil Parkinson was delighted with his side’s performance and victory at Swindon on Saturday. Parkinson said: “I thought Chaz’s all-round performance today was excellent. He won headers, ran the channels, pressed, and got the goal. That’s what he is capable of. It was a great win for us. The football was good but the work ethic was outstanding, starting from the front two Charlie and Chrissy [Maguire]. They both got a goal but it’s about more than that, it’s about working hard, closing down, winning headers, and they did that. There were a lot of changes but the lads who came in implemented the game plan really well. Swindon have some good players, their movement is good, and you have to respect that but I thought we handled it really well. Coming back after the international break, the preparation was good and it’s key to get that right when you have had a break. You could see the pressing today right to the end, and the fitness levels of the lads are very, very high. We are at our best when we press the opposition. Any win is a good one, but when you are a bit disjointed like we were today, it makes it even better.”

PP on new boy, Dion Sanderson. "The reason why Dion was such a good signing for us is because he's an U21 player and doesn't count towards the salary cap. Finding those players is not easy. So there is still some scope, which is nice to have under our belts. “It was crucial [to sign Sanderson]. He's a good player who is going to add something to the team and the squad. I'm pleased we managed to get him. We needed him before Jordan's injury but even more so now. As I've said, throughout the season there are going to be injuries and suspensions. The squad has got to be strong enough to cope with that and I think we're getting there.”

Parkinson on Jordan Willis’ foot problem. “It's an impact injury on his foot. It's swollen up very, very quickly. So we just hope it's nothing more severe than just an impact injury on his foot. It will likely need an X-ray and then we'll assess it.”

The gaffer on Denver Hume’s injury. “Denver did some running on Friday. He just hyper-extended his knee and it swelled up a bit. It's a knee he's had problems with before and we weren't going to risk it because we know Goochy can do a job there, which he certainly did today. We don't think Denver will be too far away.”
