JORDAN Lyden says there is no sense of panic in the Swindon Town camp amid their first mini blip of the 2019-20 campaign.

Richie Wellens’ side have enjoyed a strong start to the League Two season, winning six and losing three of their 11 fixtures.

However, two of those three losses have occurred in the last three games – and both came at home at the Energy Check County Ground.

Despite falling to a 2-0 defeat to Newport County at SN1 last weekend, Town are fifth in the table and remain only two points behind early league leaders Exeter City.

A win at Bradford City today – coupled with results elsewhere going their way – and Swindon could find themselves at the top of the standings.

Therefore, midfielder Lyden says calm remains within the camp despite a few disappointing results.

“It is a long season. We are sitting in a comfortable position at the moment,” said Lyden.

“Even earlier in the season when we were drawing games, we have been unlucky. We drew against Exeter and I felt we should have won.

“We have dominated the play in pretty much every game, so if we can keep that going I am sure we are going to get more wins than losses throughout the season.”

All three of Town’s league defeats this season have come at home, whereas they have picked up 11 points from five away games.

Lyden feels Swindon have been able to capitalise on their road trips as the emphasis is on home teams to attack – whereas at the County Ground, Wellens’ side often find opponents bank up against them.

Although expecting a stiff test at Bradford this afternoon, the midfielder is sure Town are capable of another strong result.

“Bradford are a massive club, the history they have is huge. We are more than capable, with the squad we have, of going there and getting the three points,” said Lyden.

“I think teams come to the County Ground and because they are the away team, they get in two banks of four. I have even seen five at the back and four in front, so basically everyone behind the ball.

“When they are at home, I think they feel pressured to play in different ways as their home fans are getting on the players’ backs.

“We have got a lot of pace on the counter-attack but we are good at playing football through teams.

“I don’t think it is a difference between home and away. I know our home form hasn’t been the best lately but, no doubt about it, we will turn that around and pick up more points during the season.”
