SWINDON Town manager David Flitcroft does not view tonight’s trip to Norwich City as a pressure-free match despite his side being big underdogs against their Championship opponents.

Flitcroft began his tenure as Town boss with a battling 2-1 win at Carlisle United in League Two on Saturday but his side have a big hurdle to climb iF they are to make it two from two this evening.

Swindon make the trip to Carrow Road eyeing a place in the second round of the Carabao Cup and Flitcroft has no reason to expect anything other than another good performance from his side.

When asked whether the pressure would be off his side against the Canaries, Flitcroft said: “I don’t look at it like that. We will see what is in front of us and you can only fight what’s in front of you.

“That’s what we will do come 7.45pm on Tuesday. We will try to commit to a gameplan and commit to each other again.

“If we get it wrong, we get it wrong and if we get it right, we get it right, but it won’t be for the want of trying and trying to commit to each other.

“It’s another opportunity and another experience for this group of players to try to set a game plan out and stick to a game plan.

“It might look different to what it did on Saturday but the principles are always the same – stop space, stop goal scoring opportunities, stop crosses, be difficult to beat and hopefully out of that you can build a winning performance.”

After a near 600-mile round trip to contend with over the weekend, Town’s odometer will pass the 1,000 mark following their trek to Norwich.

That has given an extra logistical headache for Flitcroft to deal with in his preparations but the Swindon boss says plenty of strong plans have been put in place to make things as smooth as possible for the players.

“The travelling and the preparation and the emotional content of winning your first game will take a lot out of the boys so we have got to look at that,” said Flitcroft.

“We have got a fantastic analyst here in Alex Seager and our team behind the scenes is in front of us building the Norwich plan.

“We have done quite a lot of work in the classroom, quite a lot of work presenting to the group what we are after in terms of shape.

“We have got a great opportunity to spend all day together on Tuesday, so we will get the work in that we need to do.”
