ALEX Symonds believes Swindon’s ability to cut out the errors proved the key as Cats secured a memorable road win at Guildford tonight.
After losing 4-2 at home to the Flames yesterday, head coach Ryan Aldridge insisted a series of 15 or 20 individual errors were Cats’ undoing, but tonight they put in a sublime display to come from two goals down to claim vital league and cup points at the Spectrum.
Symonds believes hard work and the form of netminder Stevie Lyle were important, but was pleased to see the error count drop significantly as the Link Centre side imposed themselves on their hosts.
“Last night was hard although we did work hard, but we made mistakes and they capitalised on them to get the win,” he told Link Sport.
“We didn’t make so many mistakes which was vital, and we worked hard which was massive for us. We scored four great goals and we deserved to win.
“Stevie (Lyle) is the best goalie in the league right now and he makes some crazy saves, so we’re very lucky to have him.”
Having beaten Manchester last Sunday, Cats are still unbeaten on the road this season, but Symonds is keen for the squad to keep their feet on the ground.
“Swindon haven’t always started very well, over the years, so if we can keep competing like this we could be up there,” he said.
“We have to take it game by game and not get ahead of ourselves, and if we work as a team the wins will keep on coming.”
