MATT Taylor knows the power of momentum in League Two but is keen to avoid Swindon Town looking too far into the future as they aim to pick up the tempo of their campaign.

Friday’s 2-0 triumph at Forest Green Rovers was the first time the side had won back-to-back matches under the guidance of manager David Flitcroft, which with the combination of the other weekend results lifted the County Ground men back into the top seven places.

Veteran campaigner Taylor is aware that those little sequences of results could make all the difference to Town’s ambitions of returning to League One at the first attempt, but is wary of the threat posed by resurgent visitors Coventry this evening.

Four of Town’s next six games are on home turf but while the triumph over Stevenage 10 days ago was a welcome first success in front of their own fans, the former West Ham and Portsmouth man will not be paying too much attention to the forthcoming fixture list.

“This league is very tight. If you can put mini-runs together then you can jump up the table very quickly, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves,’’ said Taylor.

“It’s very early in the season. That’s two wins and we’ve got another massive game coming up (on) Tuesday.

“We’ve got to try and continue some momentum to it, but every game is a tough game in this league and we’ve got to be on a our mettle to take three points.’’

The Sky Blues registered a victory on their first road trip at Grimsby back in August but have managed just a point - at struggling Chesterfield - on their travels since.

They did however lower the colours of then league-leaders Exeter City 2-0 at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday and will arrive in Wiltshire in relatively buoyant mood after just one defeat in their last five matches.

“There’s obviously still the off-the-field problems going on at the football club,” added Taylor.

“But they seem to be settled on the pitch now and hopefully for us, they can have an off-day on Tuesday.’’
