SWINDON skipper Mike Thompson wants to see a repeat performance from his side when they host Salisbury this weekend.

After a solid performance and victory over local rivals Royal Wootton Bassett last weekend, Thompson feels confident of making it two from two at Greenbridge Road on Saturday.

Not only is the captain fully aware of what Swindon will come up against at the weekend, he also says it is crucial the club make the most of the momentum gained from their derby success.

“We know Salisbury are a very good team. They haven’t had results go their way lately, so they will go into it after a bit of a low patch,” he said.

“It’s at our place, we are on a bit of a high but they are going to come at us, there is no doubt about it, but if we could do what we did on Saturday, then I am more than confident we can pick up another result.

“We only need a few more wins to get out of that bottom four and then we can think about building again.

“It’s massively important we build on it. It’s not just important in the games but in training as well, we need to get everybody down to it.

“Last Saturday was a really good game and everyone performed so it wasn’t just a couple of individuals. We just need to stick to that because it is what we are capable of.”

Swindon will also be boosted by the return of Adam Westall, Cameron Brown and Reece Kinnett against Salisbury, which will only help their bid for back-to-back wins.

While Thompson is glad to see some of the players return, he says they may face a tough task to regain their place in the side after last week’s performance.

“I hope it has picked a few people up in terms of confidence, so they know they are capable of playing rugby at this level,” said Thompson.

“We have a few others back this week too, Joe Jones is back after his operation on his bicep, these sort of people are coming back in the fold.

“I’d rather we had a selection headache in terms of having people back, instead of not knowing who is fit.”

Elsewhere in the South West One East, Royal Wootton Bassett are in action and will hope to put their derby day memories behind them when they travel to Stratford Upon Avon at the weekend.

Swindon College Old Boys have their own defeat to forget about, as they were heavily beaten by Trowbridge last weekend.

The Southern Counties side tackle Frome at home on Saturday and going into the game, both sides have an identical record of six wins and eight defeats with a total of 30 points.
