STRIKER Keshi Anderson says no-one can afford to be comfortable in their Swindon Town shirts due to the strength in depth of Phil Brown’s squad.

Brown made a total of seven changes for Town’s Checkatrade Trophy clash with League One side Plymouth Argyle at Home Park on Tuesday night, which Swindon won 3-0.

As well as the changes in personnel, there was also a change in system as Brown opted to use three central defenders and wing-backs.

Anderson, Marc Richards and Kaiyne Woolery all scored on the south coast in what was very much an experimental outing for the visitors.

With several stand-out performances from the likes of Dion Conroy, Ellis Iandolo, Martin Smith and Scott Twine, Anderson says no-one can be sure of a starting berth for this weekend’s trip to Exeter City.

“I think the competition is important because nobody can be comfortable in their shirt and if you are, that brings lacklustre performances,” he said.

“If you feel like you are untouchable then that brings a negative point on the team.

“Games like this allow players to put pressure on the starting XI. Joe Romanski has come in and played at centre-half. He did well even though he tends to play as a left back.

“Woolfenden has been playing as a right-back and he came into the middle, Dion is also coming back and I thought he had a great game so the competition is there and I hope it pushes the boys to keep up their performances.”

Speaking of the change in formation, Anderson says it wasn’t something the squad worked on in great detail in preparation, but believes that is testament to the ability of Brown’s current crop.

With a number of versatile players, the former Crystal Palace man says flexibility within the team can only be a positive.

“When you come into a cup game you know the team is going to be changed around and whatnot. We changed formation as well so for the boys to come out and put in a performance like they did is happy days for us,” added Anderson.

“We won 3-0 against a team in a higher league. We didn’t do much work on the new formation but when you get on the pitch it is really 11 v 11.”
