STRIKER Luke Norris hopes his partnership up top with Kaiyne Woolery can make a big difference for Swindon Town over the second half of the season.

Norris and Woolery have been named as Town’s front pairing in each of their last four matches, with the team claiming victory in three of those.

However, prior to that, the combination had not started alongside each other since October 6 and the duo have still only been named in the starting XI together 11 times in Town’s 32 games in all competitions this term.

That can be put down to a series of injuries suffered by Norris and Woolery striving to reach his top form following a summer arrival from League One side Wigan Athletic.

Norris saw glimpses of what the pair could do together when Woolery came off the bench to score on his debut and rescue a 1-1 draw at home to Exeter City in just the second league game of the season back in August.

And now after an extended run in the team together, the 24-year-old sees no reason why the partnership cannot go from strength to strength.

“I think it worked even all the way back when we played Exeter. It never really materialised into anything then but we have gone back to it,” said Norris.

“It has been working in training and it is starting to show some form that we can hopefully carry on.

“Kaiyne plays on the shoulder and I can play a bit deeper then, and you always know with someone that quick, he will outrun anyone in the league. It is always nice to have a player like that.

“If you ask any League Two centre half, they don’t want to run back towards their goal. We have got Kaiyne making them do that and Keshi Anderson too.

“It is always nice playing with players like Kaiyne and Keshi around you. They can create and you can get a lot of service from them.”

Woolery’s relentless work-rate in attack epitomises the minimum demands expected by Town manager David Flitcroft of his players.

Norris, who has scored 11 times in 23 games this season, says the Swindon squad are well aware of what is required when they are out on the pitch.

He said: “All the manager has asked from us from day one is that if you are not having a good day playing, you should always have a good running day. A few of the boys are getting that now.”
