GOALKEEPER Reice Charles-Cook is sure Swindon Town are capable of being in the mix for promotion at the end of the season – just as long as they cut costly errors out of their game.

A quarter of the way through the League Two season with 12 matches played, Town are down in 11th in the table but only two points off the play-off places and a further three shy of the top three that will automatically earn a place in League One.

With boss David Flitcroft having already won promotion out of the fourth tier during his managerial career with Bury back in 2015, Charles-Cook believes Town could not want for a better figure at the helm.

Swindon have put plenty of impressive results on the board already but mistakes such as the one that saw them lose in the last minute at Cheltenham Town last weekend are also holding them back.

Charles-Cook says only hard work on the training field will see Town eradicate those issues from their game and if the can, the 23-year-old has no doubt the club can taste success this season.

“We just need to stick together and put a good run together of four or five games saying we are not going to get beat,” said Charles-Cook, who made his debut for Town in the 2-1 loss at Whaddon Road over the weekend.

“We went to Cheltenham and it didn’t look like we were going to concede and it’s looked like that on numerous occasions. It’s sloppy goals like that which we need to cut out of our game, end of story.

“I am sure we will go up, 100 per cent. We have to listen to the gaffer, he has done it before. Everybody needs to take on what he says and the rest will look after itself.

“There is no I, it’s we. We have got to stick together as a team and then everything else will come together.”

Charles-Cook only made his debut at Cheltenham because of a suspension to regular number one Lawrence Vigouroux but capped his big day with a second-half penalty save to keep striker Danny Wright at bay.

The ex-Coventry City keeper always prepares as thoroughly as possible for matches even though the majority of the time he knows he will be on the bench.

It was that work ethic that allowed Charles-Cook to produce the goods when it mattered most last weekend.

“It matters how you prepare. You could just put the shooting drills before games off because you are on the bench but if you do everything right, it will cover itself,” said Charles-Cook.

“That is Monday to Friday and as a team, we have got to do everything right Monday to Friday and then the results will take care of themselves.”
