SWINDON TOWN: Foderingham dismisses Chelsea distraction
ALTHOUGH the high-profile visit of Chelsea is quickly coming into view, Wes Foderingham has stressed that all eyes at Swindon Town remain firmly fixed on doing the business at Molineux this weekend.
It’s now just 11 days until Jose Mourinho rocks up in Wiltshire with his all-star cast for a Capital One Cup third-round tie, and with tickets set to go on sale to the general public next week anticipation is building around the County Ground.
However, for Foderingham and his Town teammates there is a more pressing matter at hand - the trip to Wolves to face a team second in the table.
“No one has mentioned the Chelsea game, everyone is focusing on Wolves,” said the goalkeeper. “We know it’s a big game but we’re backing ourselves to go there and get three points.
“They’re a massive club, they’ve got a great fanbase and everyone is looking at them as one of the teams to go up. I’m sure everyone wants to beat them this season.
“They’ve done really well. They’ve scored a few good goals and put in a few good performances but I definitely think they’re beatable. With the way we play, I’m sure we can give them some problems.
“We’ll try to go there and get the win. I definitely think we’ll score so we’ve just got to get the clean sheet so we’ve been working on the defensive part of our game. I’m sure if we go there and implement the stuff we’ve been doing in training we won’t go too far wrong.”
Foderingham is relishing the chance to be one of the old heads in the Town camp at the ripe old age of 23.
“I’m enjoying it. I like trying to keep the boys going and trying to be the older head on younger shoulders,” he said.
“I do my best to embrace the role and hopefully this season I can do that.”
