Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock gave his thoughts after Swindon krept closer to promotion back to League One after Town beat Torquay 2-1 at the County Ground this afternoon.
'I hope we can get a few results over the next couple of games which will enable us to finish it off and get over the line. It's in our hands with a six-point gap and we just have to win at Bury now, that's what is on my mind.
'Our supporters thought they would turn up today and see a lot of goals, but Torquay played in the right way and could have punished us.
Having not scored in two games, Swindon struck twice in open play with goals from Blair Sturrock and substitute Lukas Jutkiewicz.
'Blair took his goal well and I am very pleased for him. He didn't merit selection when we took him out of the side but he did well alongside Barry Corr. It's a difficult balance to strike sometimes but I was pleased with his contribution today.
'Barry was keen to take the penalty to keep his goal record up but in the end we took too long in taking the spot kick.
'Ashley put two hands out for the penalty and I thought that was going to be it when they got it back to one all.
'Thankfully we made a change to freshen things up and Lukas popped up the the winner. He has a lot to learn but he is a big strong lad and he will be an exceptional player in the future.
'I am going to give the players who have been involved on a regular basis a few days off now to recover after a tough week. There is also a reserve game in midweek and we will regroup and then focus on next weekend.
'Jerel Ifil is available again after suspension next weekend and there are a few things to think about.'
