SWINDON Town first-team coach Tommy Wright has pulled no punches over attacking pair Kaiyne Woolery and Keshi Anderson, stating to both men that they need to start delivering more goals and assists for the team.

Combined, Woolery and Anderson scored only 12 goals in 78 appearances for Town last season – a stat that will no doubt frustrate supporters.

Even more frustrating is the fact that Town went unbeaten in games that the two frontmen scored in throughout last season.

And that trend has continued into this season, with Richie Wellens’ side securing a 2-0 win at Scunthorpe United on the opening day of the League Two season last weekend, with Anderson netting the second.

Wright, who joined Town’s coaching staff last month following Peter Shirtliff’s unfortunate departure, knows Anderson and Woolery can reach levels similar to star signing Lloyd Isgrove – especially in one-on-one situations.

But unlocking that talent on a regular basis seems to be the coaching staff’s challenge.

Wright said: “We’ve got players that can impact the game in one-on-one situations. Especially someone like Kainye, Keshi and Lloyd.

“Those players can beat people one-on-one. I’ve talked to Kaiyne and Keshi and told them that they need to score more goals and contribute more assists.

“With the ability they have, they need to produce more. There’s no point beating around the bush.

“The ability both of those players have, they shouldn’t be playing at this level – they should be playing higher.”

Wright, 53, will face familiar opposition tomorrow when Carlisle United – a club he coached at last season – visit the County Ground.

A large turnover of players in the summer means his knowledge is somewhat restricted on Steven Pressley’s new-look squad.

Nonetheless, he expects a stiff test at SN1 this weekend.

He added: “Carlisle have had quite a big overhaul of players. They’ve had to cut their cloth accordingly, and they have done that.

“It will be interesting to see how they get on because they have made a lot of changes.”

The first-team coach has also settled into life in Wiltshire quickly.

Working with Wellens and assistant manager Noel Hunt under the eye of chairman Lee Power certainly has placed the former winger in familiar territory as he explained his links.

“I first met Richie when I was a coach at Oldham, he was a player then,” said Wright.

“That’s how I’ve ended up here. You have to be able to have constructive disagreement with someone when you work with them.

“If you agree all the time, there isn’t much point in me being here. I’ve got a bit more experience than Richie.

“I know Paul Jewell (director of football) really well and I know Lee – I played with him at Bradford. I’ve enjoyed my time so far.”
