SWINDON WILDCATS: Forward Smith rues missed chances
FORWARD Sam Smith felt Swindon could have been out of sight after the opening period against Slough last night.
Instead the Wildcats were level at 1-1 and eventually went on to lose 2-1 to their EPL rivals, their fourth defeat on the spin.
But Smith admitted he was impressed with the opening 20 minutes by the home side and was disappointed not to go into the first break at least a goal up.
He said: “We came out flying in the first period and we should have put them to bed, that’s the best period I’ve known us play.
“I don’t know if we were just unlucky or not, but I thought we did enough to win.
“That’s just the way it’s going at the moment. Either we don’t seem to be getting the bounces or it’s something else, and it’s really frustrating.
“We had a few quality chances and sometimes they go in and sometimes they don’t.”
Despite his disappointment at the defeat, Smith insists that Wildcats are not far away from reversing their fortunes and they will get an immediate chance to get wins on the board when they face Telford and Slough again this weekend.
Smith said: “We have to turn the corner soon, we’ll put it behind us and get back to work.
“We have to forget about it and move on as fast as possible, and get back at it on Saturday and Sunday.
“I think we’re working hard enough and eventually the bounces will start coming our way, that’s the way you’ve got to look at it.”
