RICHIE Wellens was quick to praise the vocal support of more than 1,300 Town fans at Leyton Orient on Saturday, but insists his job is far from done after Swindon were installed by bookmakers as clear favourites for the League Two title.

Major firms have cut Wellens’ squad from as high as 20-1 to as low as 9-2 in the League Two winner market after another imposing weekend performance added three points to Town’s already rich points tally.

Town’s relentless energy and pace moving forward sent the away end into raptures three times during the first half – as Keshi Anderson and Jerry Yates found the back of the net while Joe Widdowson’s unfortunate own goal was sandwiched between.

The second half started with similar energy, though Orient’s impact substitutes Jordan Maguire-Drew and Louis Dennis certainly took some of the gloss off of Town’s overall performance in the capital.

Nonetheless, Wellens insists his players experienced a footballing high at Brisbane Road – and has urged Town’s committed supporters to remain as vocal for the club’s upcoming home matches against Macclesfield and Colchester.

He said: “The travelling support was brilliant.

“Scoring a goal is the best feeling you can from football, or dominating the midfield gave me a good feeling when I was a player.

“But going over to your travelling support while they’re singing and chanting your name, there aren’t many better feelings than that.

“I like Leyton Orient, they’ve got players that can pass and have some physicality up front mixed with some clever players.

“I like Louis Dennis and Jordan Maguire-Drew. Their substitutes came on and changed the game for them.”

One downside to Saturday’s crushing win was the injury sustained by star midfielder Jordan Lyden.

Lyden was substituted off the field with less than 10 minutes remaining in the second half with a quad injury.

Encouragingly for Wellens, it is initially feared Lyden’s knock will only keep him out of action for two weeks.

Wellens added: “Jordan (Lyden) felt a pull in his quad, we’re hoping it will only be a couple of weeks.

“Before that, I thought Danny Rose and Jordan dominated the midfield and picked up every second ball.

“When Anthony Grant came on, nothing changed.

“That’s a compliment for Anthony – he’s not had a pre-season and played 60 minutes behind-closed-doors on Tuesday.

“He makes good decisions and can play one-touch or hold the ball.”
