Good afternoon and welcome to our Monday afternoon live press conference blog as Swindon Town prepare to take on Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium tomorrow evening. Join us as Total Sport Swindon's Ryan Walker speaks to manager John Sheridan from 12.15pm.


That concludes today's press conference, thank you for joining us.


Caddis on Swindon career:

"I would love to stay at the club but right now the most important thing is keeping the club in the division.

Football changes in the blink of an eye. There is never any surprises."


Caddis racism in football:

"Society has a problem with racism, not just football.

People need to be educated and with Glenn Camara I followed that closely, it's disgusting what was allegedly said.

It seems to be an everyday thing at the moment and I saw that Fred of Man United recieved racist abuse yesterday and this is about respect for a fellow human being.

I don't think the problem is with football, it's with society."


Caddis on his own game:

"I'm just trying to be a good teammate and doing the best I possibly can.

I'm not the same as what I was ten years ago but I have to use my experience to try and get us out of this situation."


Caddis on league position:

"Our destiny is in our own hands and that is the best way forward."


Caddis on Lee Camp:

"He's been around the block and knows football inside out.

His communication with AK and Iandolo helped them throughout the Fleetwood game."


Caddis on Fleetwood victory:

"We started well and got a goal which gave us something to hold onto.

It was a good performance and we deserve credit for being good on the day.

We have to take confidence from that match and go again Tuesday."


Caddis on Bristol rivalry:

"It's important for us as a team and we have to keep picking points up. The most important thing for us is points.

It's a local derby which will be an added incentive but the most important thing in this match is getting the points.

Relegation is in our hands and we play a lot of teams in and around us.

We have to take each game as it comes."


Paul Caddis has now joined us.


Tommy Wright has now left us. Paul Caddis will be joining us shortly.


Wright on Rovers

"Relegation or survival won't be decided on Tuesday.

You look at Rochdale and what's happened there. There is pressure on and that does strange things to players.

We can't put too much pressure on the boys and we need to emphasise to the boys that they are good players."


Wright on Dion Conroy:

"He's just not playing well enough it's as simple as that.

He's not played well but he needs to get fitter and we couldn't keep playing the same back line and we had to change the defence.

It's part and parcel of football. He's got to look after himself and that's it."


Wright on consistency:

"I don't think this league has been consistent and is the most open it has ever been.

No one expected us to win at Fleetwood but we did.

The players have to believe in themselves but I think we have a chance of winning most games in this league."


Wright on Lee Camp:

"He has a lot of experience and he was great at speaking to our defence.

We hope the can now carry on."


Wright on Missilou:

"He will be back after the Blackpool game but we can't stop players going on international duty.

We don't think he will have to quarantine when he comes back from Congo."


Wright on Bristol Rovers:

"They had a lot of shots on goal against Plymouth but we saw flaws in the Rovers side as well.

We have to go there with the confidence and belief of getting a good result.

Jordan Lyden is having a scan but he won't be fit for tomorrow because of his hamstring injury.

Jonathan Grounds has been training and will be involved in some way tomorrow."


Wright on league position:

"We jumped from bottom of the table to sixth from bottom.

I was surprised by that, the results went well but we can only focus on ourselves.

I wouldn't rule anything out because it is so tight at the bottom of the table."


Wright on Fleetwood victory:

"I thought we played well, didn't give a goal away and we created goals.

The clean-sheet was really pleasing considering we haven't had many. Given we were bottom of the table going into the game I thought the boys approached the match really well."


We're underway.


After an impressive two-nil away victory over Fleetwood at the weekend, Swindon have climbed out of the League One relegation zone, currently sitting two places above the drop on goal difference only. Bristol Rovers are just one place below Swindon with both team's on 34 points.


Tomorrow's trip to Bristol could be season-defining for both team's with victory for either side set to take them further away from the relegation zone.


There has been a change to today. Tommy Wright will be speaking to us instead of John Sheridan. Paul Caddis will be speaking as today's player.


Good afternoon and welcome to today's live press conference blog ahead of Swindon Town's League One fixture against Bristol Rovers tomorrow evening.
