SWINDON TOWN: Kasim questions mentality on the road
YASER Kasim feels Swindon Town need to adjust their mentality away from the County Ground if they are to make a serious impression towards the top of the League One table.
The Robins have picked up just one point from their five league games on the road this term, with defeat at Preston on Saturday their fourth of the campaign on their travels.
Compared to their home form, which has seen Town collect 10 points out of a possible 12, Swindon’s record on their travels if poor and needs rectifying if they are to get close to chairman Jed McCrory’s target of promotion.
For midfielder Kasim the question of why the Robins have struggled away from home is a tricky one to answer, but he believes the solution is more mental than physical.
“I haven’t got an answer for that but it’s definitely something to do with the mentality,” he told the Advertiser.
“We have to find a way of winning games not necessarily playing well or at our best but still winning games.
“If not that then we have to keep the scoreline close so we have a chance of winning the game.”
After a tricky opening eight weeks of the season, during which Swindon have faced four of the top six sides away from home, Town have, on paper, an easier October to come.
Home games against Tranmere, Plymouth, Walsall and Notts County and visits to Oldham and Rotherham complete the fixture list for the month, but Kasim is not taking an upturn in results for granted.
“It depends how they set up against us. Every single team we’ve played so far have created a problem and we have to solve it. (On Saturday) we didn’t,” he said.
“Especially away from home, people are creating a lot of problems for so we have to find a way.
“Whether it’s a smaller team or a big team they still pose a problem. We just have to keep playing the way we play but solve it.”
