MANAGER Phil Brown says Swindon Town’s 3-0 win over Plymouth Argyle has provided him with food for thought as he looks ahead to Saturday’s clash with Exeter City.

Brown made changes to the starting XI for the Checkatrade Trophy clash, most notably Dion Conroy being reinstalled, a first outing and goal of the season for Kaiyne Woolery from the bench and a slight change in formation.

The Town boss opted for a back three of Joe Romanski, Dion Conroy and Luke Woolfenden and after watching Marc Richards, Keshi Anderson and Woolery notch, he now has plenty to consider before selecting his team for Saturday’s League Two meeting with the Grecians.

“I’ve got the hardest three days of my life coming up. I think the travelling fans, no matter where we go or what competition, they turn up so we have a duty to perform,”

“Having made a number of changes to the team and a change to the system.

“There were a couple of priorities tonight. Dion Conroy getting 90 minutes was a big priority to me and with 90 minutes in a system I haven’t seen him play in, he performed well to stake a claim for a place.

“Then Woolery got 30 minutes and he got himself a goal. We started Marc Richards, he didn’t just get a goal he had a couple of great chances as well.

“Scotty Twine probably needs one to go in and then that would have been the three strikers all scoring goals.

“Keshi Anderson got on the scoresheet with a great finish and there is a lot for me to think about for Saturday.”

As the Swindon chief used the game to experiment with his side, he revealed he was keen to see how well his team could adapt to a new formation.

“Joe Romanski is very comfortable at left back and on the left hand-side centre. Luke Woolfenden is very relaxed about being on the right and at right-hand side centre back,” he added.

“So when teams come to double up on your wing backs, you can cater for that with our centre backs.

“I thought the front three were unbelievably committed to the tireless closing down and they got their rewards.”
