SWINDON Town defender Dion Conroy says the task in hand is a simple one, win their remaining two games if they are to stand any chance of staying in League One.
It may sound easy enough to the players but back-to-back wins is a feat the club have only achieved twice this term.
As a result of Bury's 0-0 draw with Bolton last night, Town are three points adrift of safety and even if they were to win both of their remaining two games, Scunthorpe United at home this Saturday and Charlton Athletic away on the last day of the season, they will be relying on other results going in their favour to survive.
However, despite the 1-0 defeat to Walsall on Monday ending a run of four games unbeaten, Conroy is taking the positives from a performance he felt warranted more as he switches his focus to Saturday.
“All the boys are a bit disappointed but we know now, the next two games, we have to win,” he said. “Nothing really much has changed, we have to win two games and that’s it.
“I don’t think we deserved to lose (at Walsall) at all.
“We had chances, they didn’t really have many in the second half and I thought we played well. They had one shot and that was it.
“There was a period in the second half where I thought we were going to get a couple, it didn’t look like we were going to concede but we were going for it and creating some chances.
“When you concede a goal like that late in a game, we’ve experienced it before, it’s hard to keep the momentum going but all the boys kept trying.
“We’ll keep going and working hard in training and hopefully get the three points on Saturday.”
The weight of pressure on the player’s shoulders is now on the brink of breaking point, but Conroy is determined not to buckle and sees no reason why Town pull off the near impossible.
“I don’t think it’s too different,” he added.
“Games where we beat Millwall and we beat Fleetwood, it was exactly the same.
“We can do that and with the quality we have got, we can get a few goals.
“The boys are going to try and we’re going to work hard and get the six points.”
