SWINDON Town Ladies recorded their fourth league point of the season on Saturday when holding Larkhall Athletic to a goalless draw at Fairford.

Dan Jones’ side put in an improved performance defensively to record a clean sheet, however, a lack of goals down the other end of the pitch denied Town what would’ve been their second league win this season.

With a slight break between Sunday’s tie and their next contest away at Brislington, Jones is looking to improve his side's form in both boxes to reach the levels of consistency he wants to achieve.

He said: “Larkhall was a frustrating result for us, to be honest.

“We felt the game was there for the taking. You shouldn’t pin blame on the players, but I targeted the next two games to be fixtures that we would get six points from.

“It hasn’t panned out that way, given the 0-0 result.

“We could’ve lost the game, though, so to come away with a point is better than nothing – and we’re obviously pleased with the clean sheet.

“This is a result we can build on.”

With just four points secured from seven National League South West Division One fixtures, boss Jones admits getting everything to click at once is proving a troublesome task.

A goal difference record of minus 13 has done little to help Town’s cause, but with Brislington experiencing similar turbulent form, Jones is keen for his girls to turn their fortunes around.

He added: “We’re conceding too many goals, we’re starting slowly and putting ourselves on the back foot.

“It’s something we have discussed in training – how can we start faster in games, and the players did just that on Sunday.

“They came out the blocks really well and played some good football. The problem is we can’t seem to put things all together in one spell at the moment.

“It’s about trying to get everything to click in one go. We haven’t conceded a goal this week, but at the same time we’re not putting the ball in the net.

“It’s swings and roundabouts, and our game is still a work in progress.

“But things are starting to come together and we’re starting to see our work on the training ground come to fruition.

“It’s a case of building and working hard.”
