ZEKI Fryers is a strong believer that Swindon Town haven’t been at their best since the turn of the month – that’s despite beating promotion hopefuls Exeter City and Northampton Town in that period.

Fryers played in his natural left-back role at Northampton last week after Paul Caddis picked up a knock that forced him off the field before half time.

The 27-year-old performed well as Keith Curle’s Cobblers were shut out for the second time in four days.

Jordan Lyden grabbed that game's decisive winner. But ahead of this weekend’s visit of Grimsby, Fryers is of the opinion that all Town players can move the ball quicker and better than they currently are – that’s providing of course that another storm doesn’t hit British land by the weekend.

He said: “Northampton was a great win away from home in tough conditions.

“As a team, we would’ve liked to perform better. But I believe we’ve got more in us given the quality of the team – and we can perform even better at times.

“We’ve all got a good attitude and have all worked hard, but we can show more of that quality – that includes myself.

“We don’t use conditions as an excuse, but it does make it tricky. I think we can move the ball quicker and better, like how we used to play before.”

Having played under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United a handful of times, Fryers can understand when a dressing room possesses quality.

He sees quality in Richie Wellens’ team, and would’ve certainly been tempted by the 20/1 available for Town to win the division this season if he was allowed to wager his cash.

The former Barnsley man won’t look too far ahead, though.

He explained: “Looking around the changing room, I could see the quality the team had ahead of our first game at Scunthorpe.

“In the back of my head, I was thinking we could get to the top. But you don’t think like that, you have to work each day and take each day as it comes.

“The manager tells us to forget about other results and focus on ourselves. We’ve got a lot more to give, and if we do that our position will speak for itself.”

Meanwhile, Town’s postponed fixture against Scunthorpe United has been rearranged for Tuesday, March 3 (7.45pm).

The original tie was postponed only an hour before kick-off owing to strong winds generated by Storm Dennis.

The club has confirmed that all tickets purchased for the game’s original date will be valid for the rearranged date.

Supporters that are unable to attend will be entitled to a full refund, or exchange of ticket for another game. Any exchange or refund will not be permitted after 5pm on Monday, March 2.
