SWINDON TOWN: Kasim confident side can continue to improve
MIDFIELDER Yaser Kasim is confident the Swindon Town fans are yet to see anything close to the best of either him or the team after only three games of the new season.
After losing their opening day game 1-0 at Peterborough, Town have bounced back to win their last two matches by the same scoreline and have played some sparkling football in the process.
With a goalscorer an obvious requirement which is currently being addressed by the club’s board, Kasim believes he and the group of players already at the club still have another gear to find which he is confident will come as they get to know each other.
“It depends on how far the management can push us and how far we can take it, but it’s down to the players at the end of the day because we are the ones who play,” he said.
“There is a lot more to come from us, although it’s good to play, but it’s still only three games in.
“Fitness and getting to know some of the players will help, and although I know the players I still don’t have the connection because the only person I really have that with is Grant Hall.
“Other than that I’m still getting to know other players’ movements and learning everything, and that all takes time and it can’t be done in a week.”
Kasim, who is hoping to move in with fellow new signing Raphael Rossi Branco in the coming weeks, enjoys the time on the ball he gets as the anchor man in the Town midfield and believes the Robins are capable of controlling most games in League One.
“If we get most of the possession and keep it then mine is a very good role, because you can control the game very well,” he said.
“When they put one of the strikers on me one of the centre-backs tends to see more of the ball, and he becomes more of the deep lying playmaker and that’s something we have to work on and make sure if it happens again we do it well.
“With the players we have here, the players make the game, and we can slow the game down and control the tempo.
“When I was at Luton I tried to slow it down, but you have different challenges at that level, and the same at Macclesfield. It’s very much train hard, get to the game and work hard and play hard without much thinking there and there’s a lot more thinking in this club.”
