One of Swindon Town’s goal-scorers in their dramatic 5-5 draw away to Wrexham has sympathised with fans calling it “unacceptable” to concede five.

Jake Young broke the deadlock at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday afternoon before adding another goal to ensure his side were leading 4-1 at half-time.

Fortunes changed in the second half though as Wrexham mounted an unbelievable comeback culminating in a last-minute equaliser.

Reflecting on the game, Young put the disappointing draw down to individual issues rather than a collective problem.

“There were individual errors, and we know personally what each one of us has done wrong. 

"I think we can improve on ourselves as a team and take the good bits as there were plenty of them,” he said.

“Conceding five is unacceptable. Once the dust settles we have to learn from what happened today.”

The 22-year-old revealed that Town had been working to combat Ben Tozer’s long throw throughout the week but struggled with the attacking overload.

“They weren’t very direct, they’ve obviously got the long throw and the corners, but you look at the long throw and we worked on it all week - and we did deal with it in large parts,” said Young.

“There were so many bodies forward, crowding the six-yard box, which is one of their strengths, and we have to be more tough with that.”

Young also sympathised with the travelling Town fans despite taking some positives from the agonising draw.

“We are still unbeaten. I can talk about the positives but I know the fans are going to be sat there on the trip home, hurting just as much as we are, so that’s not what they need to hear right now,” he said.

“We’re going to come back stronger and take from it what we need to take from it.”

Town’s next match comes against Arsenal’s U-21s in the EFL Trophy, and Young believes Tuesday’s match at the County Ground can be the perfect chance to bounce back.

“You don’t have too much time in between games so it is a good thing that we can crack on with the next one and put this one behind us, but we definitely need to take what we need to take from it, good and bad,” he said.

The Robins will host Crawley Town and former manager Scott Lindsey next in League Two on Saturday after their cup clash with Arsenal’s youngsters.
