Paul Glatzel said that he felt that Swindon Town's relentless work without the ball paid off with the goals that they scored in their 2-1 win against Notts County.

Aaron Drinan opened the scoring after a high press ended with a back pass deflecting off the post and rebounding to the striker to easily turn home his third goal in his last four matches

Glatzel's own hot streak also continued in somewhat fortuitous circumstances as Sam Slocombe played him the ball whilst outside of his box, allowing the former German youth international to lift the ball into the unguarded net.

The 23-year-old said that although it was not how he had expected to score a goal, it was a good example of the work being done off the ball paying off.

He said: “It was a different type of game today for the attackers and I think we did that well, and I think we worked well as a team and ground out the win that we needed.

“I think we stuck to that game plan well and managed to profit from it with both goals.

“I didn’t expect the ball to come to me, but then once it did, I thought I got my first touch right and then I could take my time and just lift it over the goalkeeper.

“We set up in a way that made it difficult for them and then the ball fell for Drinan and then he put his away as well.”

Glatzel said that following a difficult run for the team, getting back to winning ways had been very important for the overall morale of the squad.

He said: “It is brilliant to get the win because I think we needed it. The players needed it, the fans needed it, and everyone at the club deserved to get back to winning ways and I am very pleased that we could do that.

“I think that we dug in and we worked for each other, which is obviously massive.

“We knew they were going to try and play out from the back, and we set up in a way to try and make it difficult for them.

“That is a different style of play and you don’t see the ball as much as you would like to but you have got to work hard for the team and do what the team needs you to do.”
