SWINDON Town manager David Flitcroft has looked to Europe’s elite for inspiration as he bids to turn around the club’s home form.

Italian giants Juventus caught the eye of Flitcroft, with the Serie A champions boasting an emphatic home record at the Allianz Stadium.

Since moving to their stadium in 2011, Juve only have tasted defeat six times 160 matches in all competitions.

However Swindon have had just one win in five league fixtures at the Energy Check County Ground as Flitcroft admits his troops are struggling to get to results as the hosts. On the road, Swindon have had little trouble collecting points, with a solitary defeat to Notts County the only blemish on their record.

So far Town have conceded twice away from home, whereas a total of 12 goals have been shipped at the County Ground.

With that at the forefront of his mind, Flitcroft is looking to convert Swindon’s away defensive performances to SN1, starting with today’s clash with Shaun Derry’s men.

“We have looked at the best examples in the world, Juventus, in 89 games at home they have won 80 in four years,” said Flitcroft.

“It’s the mentality they want to defend and we have to bring that into our football club, it might take more time, but we’ve certainly got that attitude away from home.

“There is a real anomaly, and that is when we are away from home, we’ve concede one goal and one from a penalty and at home we have conceded 12. “That is the elephant in the room, it’s what we are trying to improve and at the minute we aren’t leaving any stone unturned.

“We had a really good meeting about it and we are trying to rectify it, as a group we need to find a solution to it.

“Once we get it right, I can’t see our away form changing.”
