Aaron Drinan said that Swindon Town still have a good chance of making a push for the play-offs this season in League Two.

Despite having failed to win any of their last four matches and the gap to Harrogate Town in seventh being nine points, Drinan said that he still believed Swindon could make a run at the postseason.

The 25-year-old made 33 appearances as Leyton Orient won the League Two title alongside former Town boss Richie Wellens last season and he still feels that his new club have a promotion tilt in them.

He said: “I have only been here two weeks and we have had four games in those two weeks, but I can see a lot of positives around the club.

“I am happy with the way we are trying to play and the gaffer [Gavin Gunning] has been great and he is trying to implement his style of play into us.

“I think it is only a matter of time before we start picking up a run of results.

“The gap to the play-offs is quite small and in League Two when teams put runs together you don’t know what can happen.

“100 per cent [we can make a chase for the play-offs], I am quite a positive person myself and I think that the changing room is also positive.

“You can see from League Two that nearly every year teams eventually, if they can put a run together, literally fly up the table.

“I don’t see why [we can’t do that.]”

Drinan said that if Swindon can stick to what they are good at then they will start to turn results around and pick up the points that their performances are deserving of.

He said: “I think we need to be calm on the ball, when we got on the ball we were slightly panicky and we just needed to relax and try and make them jump.

“We were jumping as well, so we needed to be making them jump out of position and out of shape and move them around.

“Ultimately what we are good at is when we get it wide and then put crosses into the box when me and Chaz [Charlie Austin] are there and that is what we are looking for.

“If we had done that more then I think we would have gotten a better result.”
