FORWARD Kaiyne Woolery is keen to add more aggression to his game as he bids to make the most of what will likely be a continuous run of games in the pre-Christmas period.

With wingers Keshi Anderson and Lloyd Isgrove both out action for up to six weeks, Swindon Town manager Richie Wellens is set to turn to Woolery and Dialling Jaiyesimi as his primary wide options.

And 24-year-old Woolery says he is more than ready to grasp the opportunity for more minutes with both hands, while also revealing he has been working hard on adding another facet to his game.

The former Wigan Athletic man has been criticised by some fans for allowing scrappy, physical games to pass him by, but Woolery says he is trying to prevent that from happening any longer, and has vowed to press opposition defenders higher up the pitch when Town are out of possession.

Asked where he would prefer to be playing, Woolery paid tribute to the quality of Swindon’s two loanee strikers before reflecting on the area of his game that he feels can be most improved.

He said: “Jerry (Yates) and Eoin (Doyle) are both on fire at the moment, so I can see why the manager doesn’t want to change something that is working.

“I’m happy just to be getting minutes, and I feel like I’ve come on and done well in the last couple of games.

“I’ve tried to add a lot more pressing to my game and get in defenders’ faces to nick the ball high up the pitch.

“There was an instance against Crawley just before one of the goals where I stole the ball high up and played the ball to Michael Doughty to shoot.

“And there were times on Saturday where I was sliding in for tackles. Fans probably haven’t seen the side to me before, but I’m trying to add that to my game.”

While Woolery has only scored once so far this term – he netted the winner in the 3-2 home victory over Carlisle United back in August – the 24-year-old has provided three assists in 17 appearances.

The Hackney-born player is keen to add to both tallies in the coming games, and says that if a high work-rate is maintained and he is able to implement the new pressing style on opposition teams, Woolery is confident that will happen.

He said: “You’ve got to work hard and the chance will come – that’s what Richie keeps telling us.

“As long as you work hard and track your full back to stop them from scoring, then we will get chances on the other side because they will switch off.

“You don’t want to leave your full-back isolated or two on one either because it will be a field day for the opposition.

“But when you do get the ball forward, you’ve got to have that end product.”
