Cureton: We Must Not Relax

Cureton: We Must Not Relax

Swindon Town Striker Jamie Cureton has told fans, despite being out of the relegation zone they will not relax until the job is done.

Since September 2005 Town had been stuck below the dotted line and at one stage were 6 points adrift at the foot of the Leauge One Table. Since the departure of Andy king the club has steadily improved and after a 1-0 win over Gillingham, Swindon are finally out of the relegation places.

The job however is not done. If Town lose Saturday against Rotherham Saturday the club could find themselves back in the relegation places, however a win could potentially put them in 10th assuming the teams above lose.

Town Striker Jamie Cureton expressed his feelings to fans.

'We know within one loss we could be back in it, you know, so we're not celebrating here... we're getting out of it. But, it's nice to be out of it. That's a good thing.

'We all look at the table, and fans do, so it's nice to look at it and see we're not in it. That's got to be positive and another confidence boost. So our aim is to stay out of it and you know the quicker we get the points that we need than we can maybe start to relax.'

Crowds this season have been pretty good considering the clubs league position and infact may be just a bit higher than last season, despite losing fan favourite Sam Parkin last Summer to Ipswich Town.

Anything is possible but after spending much of the season in the relegation places, the club could potentially finish higher than last season, despite Town flirting with the playoff places much of last season.
