PRESS CONFERENCE LIVE: Carlisle v Swindon

Follow along with live updates as Scott Lindsey speaks to the press ahead of Swindon's trip to Carlisle this weekend. Total Sport's Joe Acklam reports live from the County Ground.

3:36PM

That's all for today, next up Carlisle.

3:36PM

FBT on possession style:


At Peterborough and Burton I have had two very different styles, Boro being a lot more possession based and I feel like I have learnt a lot and can contribute here to how Swindon will play.

3:34PM

FBT on where he is in his career:


I'm ready to kick on play games and play as high as I can. It's everyone's dream to play in the Premier League, so why can't it happen?

3:32PM

FBT on his initiation song:


Not decided yet, but can rap and sign.

3:32PM

FBT on Swindon's slow start:

We haven't found our feet yet, but I just want to get out there and get playing and start to impress.

3:31PM

FBT on Louis Reed:


I messaged him when I was on the way down and he had great things to say about the players and has taken me under his wing.

3:30PM

FBT on being in Non-League:


I felt I had a good grounding by the time I was 16 and then I wanted to play men's football so I dropped down and really enjoyed it.

3:30PM

FBT on his development:


As a youngster I was the only left footer, so I have always played at LB and I really enjoy stopping the best players. I watch a lot of football, so I like to take things from other players games.

3:29PM

FBT on what he can bring:


It's a young group so I can add leadership but also I can excite the fans and add solidity. I feel I can play in any defensive position on the left.

3:28PM

FBT on joining Swindon:


The move has come very quickly. Monday morning I spoke to JFH and he told me about it an l said absolutely get it done. The last few years have been a bit stop start so I'm excited to get the chance here.

3:25PM

In comes the new man Frazer Blake-Tracy

3:22PM

That's all for Scott Lindsey today, we will have a player soon.

3:22PM

Scott Lindsey on knowing his best team:


I think we know what it is, but injuries and other factors have meant we haven't really been able to use it yet.

3:16PM

Scott Lindsey on too much being made of not scoring:


"Yes." I don't take any notice of the noise, the stats show we should have scored, so I am not worried.

3:15PM

Scott Lindsey on Harry McKirdy:


I'm hoping that playing Carlisle means that he will be more concentrated and determined in this game. I will probably speak to him about it.



3:14PM

Scott Lindsey on coach journeys:

The players have quite a bit of fun on long journeys and we have court cases based on people being late to things. We are setting off early tomorrow and training at Preston on the way up.

3:13PM

Scott Lindsey on getting a win:

If we win on Saturday it will be a massive plus because we are working hard and I think we deserve one based on our attitude. The mood in the camp has been brilliant and if we win then we are exactly where we were last year.

3:12PM

Scott Lindsey on getting more shots:


We have had 16 chances on goals in 3 games in our stats, which is roughly where we should be. We have had chances in each of the games and we have had more than enough to get goals.

3:10PM

Scott Lindsey on Carlisle:


They have had a good start to the season. They are very competitive and put a lot of balls into the box from different angles. Very very tough game.


We have done work on defending balls into the box today and on how we can threaten them.

3:09PM

Scott Lindsey on formation:


Nothing to do with developing players in a back three, we feel it can help us gain control and win matches. We want to be flexible and not pick one and stick with it. I'm not stamping my name on one formation.

3:07PM

Scott Lindsey on Frazer Blake-Tracy:

He can play left-back, wing back and left sided center half. With the two injuries it gives us the ability to switch to a back four


He's athletic, tall and a very good footballer with good experience.

3:06PM

Scott Lindsey on Walsall selection:


The McKirdy sending off changed my decision as it becomes much harder when playing with ten men for a long time in the game. I just felt that with a long trip to Carlisle it was beneficial to give them a rest, also it was a good opportunity for younger players.

3:04PM

Scott Lindsey on injuries:


Pretty much where we were. Devine and Iandolo still out and Brennan is being given longer on the protocol, he has gone home

3:02PM

We are in place and Lindsey is imminent
