SWINDON Town midfielder Rohan Ince believes his team-mates need to create more chances if they are to avoid relegation at the end of the season.
The 24-year-old signed for Town on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion in January and has been a mainstay in Luke Williams’ side since his arrival.
Swindon’s 1-0 loss to Walsall on Easter Monday plunged their survival hopes into further doubt as they are now three points adrift of Bury following their 0-0 draw with Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.
Currently 22nd in the league standings, Swindon will also have to leapfrog Port Vale if they are to renew their League One status for another season.
But with the Valiants having a game in hand, relegation could well be confirmed this weekend when Scunthorpe United visit the County Ground.
Ince thinks his side, who need back-to-back victories in their final two fixtures, have to be more clinical if they are to stand any hope of avoiding relegation. “I know it is difficult to get goals, it is one of the hardest things in football. But when we get our chances, we really need to take them,” said Ince.
“Ben (Gladwin) had a chance at the weekend and Nicky (Ajose) had another chance. I know we aren’t getting many chances but we need to try to focus on our chances.
“We need to try and take them because that could be the difference for us.”
This weekend’s visitors are flying high in the table and have recently secured their place in the play-offs, however, they still have plenty to play for as they could be promoted automatically if they win their remaining two games.
While Swindon’s results did appear to improve of late following a run of two wins and two draws, defeat at Walsall has stalled any progress, but it hasn’t discouraged Ince.
“If we got a win, we could have been out of the situation but it wasn’t to be (at Walsall). We always look forward to the next game and we’ll try to do our best again,” added Ince.
“It’s one of the things we have been working on in the last couple of weeks (getting bodies forward) and trying to create more chances for the strikers.
“It is very clear what we need to do, we need to win the last two games.”
