Woolery praises 'dangerous' Swindon attack as Town make it two in a row
KAIYNE WOOLERY praised the spirit of his Swindon Town teammates after the Robins recovered from going a goal down to win 3-2 against Carlisle United at the County Ground earlier today. Total Sport Swindon’s Ryan Walker got the thoughts of the goalscorer in the aftermath of the sides first home league victory of the season.
An inspired performance saw Swindon Town score three second half goals to complete a comeback in front of a passionate STFC crowd at SN1 this afternoon.
And speaking after the final whistle, Robins winger Kaiyne Woolery gave his thoughts on the match.
“I think the boys did very well today, especially to come back from one-nil down,” said Woolery.
“I think we looked a threat all game.
“They [Carlisle] didn’t really have too many clear-cut chances except for the two they scored from.
“I think we played very well today,” he said.
A frustrating first-half saw Swindon dominate proceedings as chances came and went for the Robins in the opening 45 minutes, only for the scores to be level at half-time.
But when asked about the effect this had on the half-time team talk, Woolery stated that the manager was happy with the performance, trusting that a goal would eventually come for his side.
“The gaffer just said keep doing what you’ve been doing and the goals will come,” said Woolery.
"He told us to just keep moving the ball quickly and the chances will open up as they get tired.
“Which I felt they did for the third goal especially.
“They were bombing up because it was 2-1 and they left massive gaps in behind,” added Woolery.
Having had spurned chances in the opening half, Woolery was eventually rewarded with a much-deserved goal in the 90th minute after being put through on goal by teammate Keshi Anderson.
Discussing his goal after the final whistle, Woolery explained how his strong partnership with Anderson will make Swindon's attack even more threating this season, with the pair having recorded an assist for each other in the season’s opening two games.
“Hopefully we can keep it going [our relationship],” stated Woolery.
“I think we’ve got a good little understanding between us now.”
“He set me up for another one today which maybe I should have squared to him. But it was good and hopefully we can keep that going to push the team on,” he said.
Originally signing for the club in 2017, Woolery was expected to breakthrough as Swindon’s leading central striker.
But after playing on the wing for the majority of Wellens’ tenure, the 24-year-old highlighted how he has adapted his game to turn himself into a natural wide man.
“Since I came back from my injury I played out on the wing for the whole of last season,” Woolery said.
“This season I understand the role a lot more.
“My position is a lot better and I think that’s helped me improve,” he finished.
