Swindon Town boss hopes overnight stay will help side
SWINDON Town have altered their travel plans for this weekend’s long away day at Carlisle United, with the squad set to stay in a local hotel in Cumbria overnight prior to the clash at Brunton Park.
Town have not stayed away the night before a game since the visit to Sheffield United in December, a game they lost 1-0, and their improved away form seems to have coincided with the decision to day-trip.
However, the 550-mile round trek to Carlisle has sparked a change of plans and Swindon will drive up by coach on Friday.
Manager Mark Cooper told the Advertiser: “Thank you to Lee (Power, Swindon owner), he’s made sure we’ve got an overnight trip so we’ve got the luxury of travelling up (on Friday) and preparing properly.
“As a player I wasn’t too keen on staying in different hotels and different beds and hanging about hotels.
“I just wanted to get to the game and play.
