ANTHONY Grant says Swindon Town will not be getting carried away with two crucial away wins in a week as the League One survival battle intensifies.

Town propped up the table ahead of a difficult-looking trip to Fleetwood Town seven days ago but go into a blank weekend three points clear of the relegation zone after winning both that game and a six-pointer at Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.

The picture could change come 5pm with rivals Rovers and Wigan Athletic both in action today, while AFC Wimbledon take on fellow strugglers Northampton Town.

But Grant, who has starred at centre-back in the last two games, says he and his team-mates must stay level-headed over the course of the next six weeks.

He said: “We have got the players to do it. We know that, in-house. We’ve just got to keep the faith and not get carried away.

“We’ve kept two clean sheets I two games but could concede three in the next game. We just need to relax.”

Asked what had brought about a change in Town’s fortunes in the wake of an abject home defeat to Gillingham a fortnight ago, Grant added: “We have been conceding goals and have been scoring goals. It’s been like a basketball game, really.

“We just need to sort out keeping the ball out as a team. It’s not just down to the defence when the ball goes in the net. You can’t blame the defence. Defending starts from the front. All 11 players on the pitch need to work hard – as well as the subs and those not involved.

“Eventually something will drop if you do that and luckily it has. We got a bit of luck on Tuesday night and just need to keep working hard.”

The slice of luck Grant refers to came at the Memorial Stadium when Rovers’ Zain Westbrooke had a goal disallowed early in the second half after an incorrect offside call. Town took full advantage and went on to win thanks to Jack Payne’s strike.

Grant said: “If you don’t ask, you don’t get. I stepped up and out my hand up and don’t know whether their player was in line or behind me. It took a nick and went in the bottom corner. I used my experience. I heard it was onside, but that happens in football.

“There is no VAR in League One – fortunately, because it’s a shambles. We’ve been unlucky in some games anyway so maybe that’s our bit of luck. We will take it and move on.”
