Paul Sturrock Match Reaction

Paul Sturrock Match Reaction

Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock talks about Swindon's 0-0 draw at Edgar Street Saturday.

'If someone had offered me four points from the two Easter games then I would take it - but that now means we have to do the business on Monday at home,' said Sturrock talking after the final whistle at Hereford.

'It's definitely two points gained here. Fear is the name of the game at this point because some of the flowing football has gone out of the window. Hereford showed what a good side they are in the first half and the two strikers terrorised us in the opening stages.

'I felt that our players are taking the easy option and we were not passing the ball. We didn't play as a team, whereas before our full-backs have been bombing forward.

'Phil Smith made several great saves and 3-1 wouldn't have been an exaggeration at half-time. I had words at half-time and they seemed to respond. We came out in the second half and had a go.'

'There will have to be changes for Monday. Barry Corr has done some incredible work in the past two games and Lee Peacock came off with cramp.

'We have kept two clean sheets in the last two games, but we haven't scored. We won't score with two banks of four players standing 25 yards from our own goal. At the end of the day we have to come up with something on Monday - we have to get back to passing the ball.

'The gap has grown but there are still five games to go. I am not taking too much notice of the table at the moment because Torquay is a big, big game for us. We cannot just turn up and expect it to happen.'

'Our supporters were fantastic today and they made some tremendous noise. It's unfortunate that we couldn't get three points for them, but hopefully we can do just that on Monday against Torquay,'
