Diagouraga: We Can Stay Up

Patrick Viera, err Toumani Diagouraga who made his debut for Swindon Town On Saturday has spoken of his delight in assisting Swindon win 2-0 over Chesterfield.

Diagouraga commented that he feels that Saturday's vital win may perhaps be a turning point. “I thought it was a very important victory for the club.'

Diagouraga came on during the second half of the fixture in place of Michael Pook who didn't really do anything during the match and Manager Iffy Onuora had some words of encouragement for the young frenchman, “The manager told me that I was coming on at half-time and to go out and enjoy it. So I did!

“I thought the crowd was good for us, especially in the second half.” The Crowd roared 'We Are Staying Up after Jamie Cureton's second goal for Swindon.

In terms of keeping Swindon up, Diagouraga was asked if Swindon will beat the drop to the lowly depths of League Two he responded. “Hopefully, yes. It is possible if we keep playing like we did today.'

In addition he also feels he can help chip in with some goals to help lift Swindon up the table. “I like to get box to box. I have scored six or seven goals this year at Watford for the reserves.”
