FORWARD Ryan Watt believes three games in four days will not be a problem for the Swindon Wildcats players to handle.

Swindon secured a double triumph over Sheffield at the weekend and tonight visit Telford looking to improve their eighth-placed position in the EPL table.

Both clashes with the Steeldogs at the weekend were bad-tempered affairs with Watt involved in fights on both nights, against Lubomir Korhon and Lewis Bell.

However, Watt says that he and his teammates are in good physical shape as they prepare to travel to Shropshire tonight.

“I think that at the start of the season it would probably take its toll on the body a bit more, but because we’re in the middle of the season everyone’s game-fit now,” said Watt.

“I prefer to play games then practise anyway, and we just want to get a bit of confidence going.”

Head coach Ryan Aldridge has admitted that tonight’s clash is a hugely significant game and urged his side to produce a performance similar to Saturday’s 8-1 mauling of the Steeldogs.

“Telford is another big game, especially away, and we need to go in there and play the way we have the last two games, especially the way we did on Saturday,” he said.

“Six points in four days would be tremendous.”
