SWINDON Town’s run of three wins and three clean sheets in succession is proof that things are clicking into place at the club, according to assistant manager Ben Futcher.

Town’s 1-0 victory over Wycombe Wanderers on Tuesday night in the Checkatrade Trophy was an exact repeat of the result they achieved when the two teams did battle in League Two back on October 21, with David Flitcroft’s side bagging a 3-0 triumph away at Port Vale in the league between the two.

Flitcroft and number two Futcher were appointed as the club’s new management team over the summer in the wake of their relegation from League One and three months into the new campaign, they have guided Town into the play-off places in the fourth tier.

After a tough 2016-17 season, Futcher is pleased that there is a positive feel starting to flow around the Energy Check County Ground again.

“We are trying to create a winning culture. We have not been at the club that long but it is coming slowly,” said Futcher.

“The squad got rotated on Tuesday and all the lads that came in did fantastic, and all the lads that didn’t play were in the dressing room at the end to celebrate with them.

“We are trying to create that team and squad togetherness.

“Just because you have the name Swindon Town, it doesn’t give you a divine right to go and win games.

“Hard work, commitment and togetherness wins you football matches.

“It was always going to take a bit of time to implement the ideas and get the togetherness and the winning mentality, which has not been here for a while.

“It is coming slowly but surely, but we will take it one game at a time and keep working hard to try to get the best results we can for the club.

“I think people forget where we were four months ago on the first day we came in.

“There have been a lot of changes and a lot of players have come in.

“Sometimes it takes players time to settle, whereas some settle straight away.

“We are going well at the moment, we are delighted with everyone and long may it continue.”

Town will bid to make it four wins in a row when they turn their attentions to the FA Cup this weekend, with Flitcroft taking his troops to National League South side Dartford on Sunday.
