SWINDON Town captain Olly Lancashire says he and his teammates are still bewildered by their home form after the second-half collapse that saw them lose 5-0 to Luton Town on Boxing Day.

Three days earlier Town had come away with all three League Two points in a 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra, following what was a polished performance from David Flitcroft’s side.

Yet after yet another home horror show, Swindon have claimed a total of just 11 points at the Energy Check County Ground so far this term, compared to a tally of 24 from their travels.

With the season approaching the halfway stage, Lancashire admits to feeling utterly exasperated by the club’s contradicting form.

“We have been asking the question all year. We are top of the away league but more or less bottom of the home league,” said the 29-year-old.

“If we were losing week in, week out away then you could say we are a bad team but we have shown that we are a good team, so we are still scratching our heads.

“We are halfway through the season now and we still haven’t hit form at home, which is frustrating and there has to be a reason why.

“As soon as we get a setback at home the plan goes out of the window and we capitulate, as the manager said.”

While the inconsistency between games has been frustrating for Lancashire, the skipper also believes that he and his teammates are too inconsistent within 90 minutes.

The first half against the table-topping Hatters ended goalless and Lancashire believes Swindon matched their high-flying counterparts before conceding five in the second period.

“They’re a good team and I thought we more than matched them in the first half, it was going fine,” he said.

“But then obviously they scored two quick goals and the game plan went out of the window and we started doing our own thing.

“It’s hard to play at any level, especially when people start doing their own thing. Not sticking to the game plan and that’s what happens.

“It was a very long second half, but fair play to Luton because they are a good team and they were ruthless in what they were doing.”

“I think they had six or seven shots and scored five goals, they have a good strife force and punished our mistakes.”
