SWINDON Supermarine boss Dave Webb is looking forward to getting his team out at the Webbswood Stadium for their first home game of the season.

Marine opened their Evo-Stik League South West campaign with a 1-1 draw at Cinderford Town on Saturday.

Webb has stated his team are aiming for promotion this season and says if they are going to achieve that, they need to improve their home form, starting with North Leigh tonight.

Last year, just 52 per cent of Marine’s home fixtures ended in victory, something that needs to change this season.

“Home form is imperative. One thing I was critical of last year was our home form because it wasn’t good enough,” said Webb.

“We didn’t win many games at home and that is why we didn’t make the play-offs so we need to make sure we get a winning start.

“We want to stay unbeaten at home for as long as possible. If we can do that, we will be in the mix and where we want to be.

“The next two games are at home and we have to make sure that we go out and win both.”

Work at the Webbswood Stadium has seen the introduction of state-of-the-art facilities over the course of last season, and the Marine manager believes teams enjoy visiting the ground, something he wants to stamp out if possible.

Webb also highlighted the importance of the home supporters, who deserve to see good performances from his side.

“Our fans are great. It is important we play a brand of football that people want to come and watch,” added Webb.

“I’m looking forward to playing at home and hopefully we can play at a different level to what we were playing at the weekend.

“Our facilities are fantastic and our pitch is in great condition. Teams are going to come here and they will enjoy playing on that surface so we are going to have to try and make it difficult for them.

“Maybe last year we let ourselves down a little bit at home and it is important for the supporters that we entertain them and give them wins.”
