'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Paul Sturrock Match Reaction

Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock gives his reaction to Swindon's 0-0 with Rochdale at Spotland this evening.

'This is a difficult place to come to and as one of the form sides, they were always going to be a tough side to face.

'We did created chances - as did they- and Barry could have won the game for us but the main thing was that we did create.

'I was disappointed in a way because we seemed to over emphasize our new style but the pitch didn't help. I am happy with a point, but there is a fine line between passing the ball and playing a more direct style - the pitch dictated things tonight. It was never going to be conducive to a passing game.

'Jack Smith took another booking tonight and he will now be missing, but after Saturday because of the seven day rule and he is expecting t miss two games after Hereford. I will have to make changes but that's the nature of the game. Lots of other teams will have to make changes through injuries and suspensions, but I'm happy with the ones we have added to the squad. Westwood will play for the reserves and we have Claude and Patrick as well.

'Overall we have come away with a result and we are two points ahead of MK Dons. It will be a challenge right up until the end of the season and we are hoping that we can keep the run going - which would keep the pointage coming are way. I have a total in my mind of what we would need to take us up - but I won't be sharing that with you.

'Over the last three games we have taken seven points from nine. If we can repeat that over the next three games then we would be hard to catch. The positives from tonight are keeping a clean sheet and taking a point.

'The next games are a challenge, but it's up to me to make things happen,' finished Sturrock.
