SWINDON TOWN: Martin: We're the best in Europe but Town can still improve
SWINDON Town may be sitting top of the European form league, but Chris Martin still thinks the best is yet to come from the Robins.
According to research conducted by Sky Sports News, Town’s record over their last four matches in better than the equivalent of any side in any major league across the continent.
Having won each of those matches by a combined score of 16-0, Swindon claimed pride of place above Queen of the South in second, PSG in third, Anderlecht in fourth and Barcelona in fifth.
It’s an impressive achievement but one Martin feels he and his teammates can still better.
He said: “It’s no surprise when you see our last few results. We’ve scored 16 goals and not conceded any. It’s a fantastic run of form and sometimes that doesn’t happen and we might have nicked a couple of the games 1-0 or 2-0.
“It’s great to have scored a few goals. I would have liked to have chipped in but it’s not the case. There’s still more potential I think as well. It’s not just that we’ve hit our peak and that’s it. I think we’ve still got potential to improve.
“You’ve seen for 60 minutes against Portsmouth we didn’t play our best football and we still won the game 5-0. If we’d played 10 or 20 per cent better who knows what the result would have been. I don’t think we’ve hit top form just yet.
“I know we’ve had fantastic results but there’s still room for improvement. We’ll keep striving for that, obviously the manager demands we keep getting better and showing the concentration levels that he wants.
“Hopefully we keep getting the results.”
