DIALLANG Jaiyesimi hasn’t been involved in a squad that is more complete than Swindon Town’s during his three-year stint in the Football League.

The 21-year-old Norwich City winger notched his first goal in red at the weekend as Town registered a third successive League Two win when downing Walsall 2-1 at home to jump into the division’s automatic promotion places with over a third of the season completed.

Jaiyesimi has previously played on loan for Grimsby Town and Yeovil Town in League Two while at Premier League side Norwich – campaigns that concluded with an 18th-placed finish and relegation.

But the Southwark-born youngster, who has only recently overcome a leg injury that he picked up on the training ground days after linking up with Richie Wellens’ Swindon squad, has sourced his creative spark in Wiltshire.

And if the squad continues to deliver repeat performances of what fans have witnessed in recent weeks, Jaiyesimi sees no reason why promotion shouldn’t be on the club’s radar.

He said: “This squad is better than what I’ve been at before. This team has a great chance of doing well this season. I could see that from the first day I came.

“Eoin Doyle will score whatever you give to him – I’d put money on him to score. He’s a proven goalscorer and has that instinct.

“I’ve had two injuries on the bounce, so I’ve been out for about a year. It’s been tough, but I’m getting back to full fitness – hopefully I’m back soon.

“I’m strong on the ball and in one on ones, I find spaces and have an eye for goal. I try and freestyle a bit.”

Conditions no doubt impacted Saturday’s visit of Walsall.

But Jaiyesimi’s relentless pressure on the Saddlers’ back four granted him his first goal since joining Swindon in July as a deflected shot fortuitously crossed the visitors’ goal line.

The 21-year-old admitted that relentless wind and rain made it hard to adopt a passing philosophy.

Chasing lost causes, therefore, became a trait he adopted.

“Conditions were poor, but the boys did well and we got the win in the end, which is all that matters,” said Jaiyesimi.

“We had to adjust. It’s hard for both teams but we kept on moving the ball well.

“We do well to pass the ball anyway, so I don’t think the rain affected us too much. But conditions were still bad.

“I was chasing a lost cause for the goal, and the ball ended up falling to me.

“I chopped inside and a deflection saw it go in. I’m very happy with that.

“It’s about persistence. As a forward player, you’ve got to keep at it.”
