Lee Peacock Ready To Step Up

Lee Peacock Ready To Step Up

Lee Peacock has expressed his desire to get Town out the relegation spots after the departure of top scorer Rory Fallon.

Peacock spoke to the Official Swindon website earlier today and had much to say about his debut, and the upcoming match with Southend United Tommorrow.

"It was nice to get off to a scoring start and to some extent took the pressure off a little bit. Jamie Cureton also scored his first goal for the club and everyone was pleased for him too, so it was a good day all round.

"With Rory going there is a challenge there for me to step up to the mantle. He wants tofurther his career and took the chance to do so with Swansea City. I want to carry on from where Rory left off in terms of goals and make an impression here"

"We have proved we can create the chances but we have to put them away. Saturdays performance against Bournemouth can be improved upon. We have to defend better as a team and that's something we have been working on in training

"The one thing we cannot do as a team is sit back. If we do that we will get punished against teams and once we get a goal lead, we have to push for a second and so on

"Southend United will be a physical test for us, especially up front because they have a big backline. They also have some quality strikers too but we have to concentrate on our own game. It will be a tough evening but hopefully we can catch them off guard,"

Peacock joined Swindon last week on a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday, and agreed to a 2 and a half year deal at the club.
