SWINDON Town manager John Sheridan says his team’s style of play is irrelevant now as long as three points are accrued at the end of each game.

Town welcome Crewe Alexandra to the County Ground on Saturday afternoon looking for the club’s second win in four games after poor defeats to Shrewsbury Town and Portsmouth, respectively.

The inconsistencies shown since the turn of the year highlight why Town occupy a League One relegation spot at present, according to their manager, but Sheridan suggested his side is more than capable of picking up three points against Crewe and gaining revenge for a painful defeat earlier in the season.

Sheridan said: “I don’t think we will do things consistently well. If we did, we’d be in the top six. That’s our biggest problem – we’re inconsistent in the way we play.

“At times since I’ve been here, we have shown we’re a decent team and we’ve got good players. I know that if we bring that to the game, on our day we’ve got a good chance of winning it.

“We’ve got to go out with that belief that we’re going to turn up and perform. If we do that, then we’ve got a very good chance of winning the game.

“But style of play, how we win – at this point it’s all about getting three points however we can.”

With 18 games to go, Sheridan’s men will be desperate to take three points against a Crewe side who has tasted victory in just one of the club’s previous five games.

January departures by key players at Gresty Road appear to have taken their toll, and Sheridan believes now could be a perfect time to begin an unbeaten run which end up keeping Town in League One.

He said: “If you’re winning, it will keep you in this league. That’s the main objective, it’s the most important thing – the club stays in this league, that’s what we’ve got to aim for. How we do that is not important.

“You see Burton have just won two on the spin and they’ve got a bit closer to the rest of us. Shrewsbury have won a few and moved further up the table, so that’s what we’ve got to try and do.

“Results-wise, you can’t really predict them in this league. You’ve just got to look after yourself and go into this game on Saturday positive.

“We’re at home again, we’ve got to be better at home, and we’ve got to try and win games at home.”
