Michael Flynn is hoping to spread some Christmas cheer among the Swindon Town faithful as they travel in their numbers to AFC Wimbledon this weekend.

Town will be roared on by a sold-out away end at the Cherry Red Records Stadium as they look to get back-to-back wins on the road for the first time this season after beating Accrington Stanley 4-3 at Wham Stadium in their last game.

Flynn said he was hoping to reward another display of excellent support from the Swindon fans once again with a strong showing on the field and send them home happy after the final whistle.

He said: “It is brilliant and I would love for them to all be going back on the coach, whether they have had a drink or not, in a happy mood and getting some of the Christmas songs on, talking, and getting excited.

“It is a tough game and we have a big six games coming up now before we can actually bring players in.

“We have to keep going and get as many points as we can.

“In terms of the numbers [of fans], it is phenomenal the amount of support we get and I am very proud and privileged to be representing them.

“I can assure them that I am giving everything to do the job that we all want and that is success for Swindon Town.”

However, Town will be up against it to get a third straight win as The Dons have been in terrific form at home, winning all of their last five on their own turf across all competitions.

Flynn said that Saturday’s opponents are a side doing the basics right and Swindon will need to be switched on to get the three points.

He said: “They have got good players, and they seem to be a settled team, they have switched on and they continue doing their jobs for the duration of the game.

“Of course, they concede goals now and then, everyone does, but that is the nature of football.

“As much as we do our analysis on Wimbledon, I am sure they will be doing the same on us, so it is on the day who carries out the instructions and performs to their capabilities the better.

“Whether it is home or away, for me it is just the chance to go and get three points and that is all that I am concentrating on.”
