PERSONAL glories matter little to Lawrence Vigouroux, despite the goalkeeper’s fine form this season.

The former Liverpool stopper, who celebrates his 23rd birthday today, has caught the eye since moving to the County Ground on a permanent deal last summer and has even been linked with Championship giants Newcastle United and Norwich City.

This afternoon, Vigouroux will once again come up against Rochdale – one of the two sides he has saved a penalty against already this term – but the Town goalkeeper isn’t concerned with clinching another standout moment for himself.

If individual moments were his main aim, he says he’d be plying his trade in a different sport.

“I think I’ve done okay this season but for me personally, at the end of the day, I’d rather concede five goals, and all of them be my fault, and win 6-5 than lose 2-0 and have an unbelievable game,” said Vigouroux.

“That’s just me personally – I don’t know if anybody else feels the same as me but that’s just how I am.

“I would rather we go to Rochdale and win, and I don’t really play that well, because that doesn’t bother me.

“I just want to win matches and I just want to help this team as much as I can to get up the table.

“If I wanted to be an individual player, I’d play tennis or something like that.”

Vigouroux believes that Swindon will need to be mentally tough for their trip to Greater Manchester and cannot let previous results, such as their 3-0 win over Dale in October or their disappointing FA Cup exit at the hands of Eastleigh in midweek, play on their collective psyche.

The Town keeper said: “I think every game should be on a game-by-game basis.

“We need to go into the game against Rochdale with the same mentality that we did last month but we can’t expect the same game that we had last month, so I think we’ve just got to go there and take anything we can get.

“We’ve got to work really hard. It’s a tough place to go.

“It’s going to be cold, the pitch might not be as good as it is here, so we’ve got to go there and just adapt the conditions as early as we can and hopefully, we can get three points.

“Tuesday was not good enough at all but we can’t dwell on it because if we do and we feel sorry for ourselves, we’ll go to Rochdale and we’ll lose again – it’s a simple as that.

“We’ve got to help each other, we’ve got to lift each other in the dressing room and hopefully we can go to Rochdale and get a win.”
