COMPLACENCY is the only factor that concerns Swindon Town manager Richie Wellens with regards to the club’s levels of success in the short-term.

Eoin Doyle scored in each half to move onto seven goals in League Two this season – the most of any player in the division – while Keshi Anderson weighed in with his third marker after latching onto a loose ball on the edge of the six-yard box to open Swindon’s account.

Town’s three-goal win has promoted Wellens’ side into the automatic promotion frame – and they were only denied top spot when Exeter City’s Nicky Law netted an injury time penalty to rescue a point at home to Leyton Orient.

Unconcerned by the League Two table at this stage, Wellens underlined his belief that any levels of complacency in the coming weeks must be stamped out.

“My only concern about this group is complacency,” said Wellens. “We need to keep on top of them and let them enjoy their football. But as soon as things start to slacken off, we have to step in. As staff, we won’t get complacent.

“We’ll keep driving up and down the country to look at opposition. It’s important when we recognise any levels of complacency that we are onto them.

“That’s the only danger we have got moving forward.”

While this afternoon’s win over Daryl McMahon’s side appeared leisurely, the 39-year-old Town boss insisted hard work on the training ground in the week ultimately paid dividends.

Possession stats in the first half saw Swindon hold over 70 per cent of the ball, and that led to eight chances on target compared to the visitors’ two.

Swindon’s patience in front of Macclesfield’s back four was admirable, and a series of chances were created before Anderson and Doyle’s markers.

Assessing the game, Wellens added: “We’ve put a lot of hard work into achieving what we want to try and do.

“Macclesfield changed their shape – they played four at the back. I honestly think if teams come here and play two centre backs against Doyle and Yates then they will have problems.

“We dominated possession in the first 15 minutes, but Macclesfield had good shape and they were tricky to break down.

“Once we started mixing our game up in terms of passing and hitting longer balls, we started to create more chances.

“The first goal was brilliant, it was something we highlighted that we could do against them.

“The team talk after the game was simply to say well done.”
