SWINDON Town manager Michael Flynn labelled some of his team’s play so far this season as “first class.”

The Robins secured victory by their biggest margin of the budding term so far on Saturday after thumping Scott Lindsey’s Crawley Town 6-0 at the County Ground.

Jake Young’s four-goal bundle was the primary talking point for most walking away from SN1, while the second may have been about the quality of Swindon’s overall performance.

Following an even first third of the match, Dan Kemp put Flynn’s men in a commanding position – one from which they never looked back.

Flynn was mildly critical of how his team started on home soil but went on to share significant praise about the convincing manner of the final 60 minutes.

Asked about the current style of play, Flynn said: “It is about entertaining too. I want us to play attractive football. We’ve got the players here to do it.

“We’ve got to be lucky with injuries and hope we don’t miss key players for long periods of time.

“We played this way for the last couple of years at Newport – probably not as good as this by the way, in terms of our movements and our rotations.

“The way the players are making angles for each other is first class.”

Central to the control Swindon exerted over Crawley was the Robins’ ability to pop up in a variety of positions – some quite unnatural to their original ones.

Flynn was delighted with the tactical nous his players showed and gave a shout-out to the role Charlie Austin played in allowing Young to flourish.

Swindon’s manager said: “You’ve seen Remeao Hutton in midfield at one stage.

“We had Dokes [Udoka Godwin-Malife] in midfield at one stage, and then George McEachran rotated out to a wing-back position where he then cut in and played a through ball.

“It was very, very pleasing on Saturday, as was the movement of our strikers.

“I know Charlie [Austin] didn’t score [against Crawley], but his movement occupied their defenders as they were always watching him.

“He gave Youngy [Jake Young] that little bit of space as well, which is a sign of a good partnership.”

Saturday’s success was the first time Town had won a game after taking the lead this term – following three failed attempts in all competitions.

Flynn acknowledged he has learned a game is never over, no matter how promising a situation might look, but felt comfortable enough when leading against Crawley.

He said: “Especially after last week’s shenanigans [against Wrexham], I’ll never ever take three or four-nil for granted.

“But I have got faith in my players, and I knew that there wouldn’t be a repeat of what happened the week before.”
