SWINDON Town manager David Flitcroft felt a draw was a fair result as his side came from behind to finish 1-1 against Exeter City in his first home game in charge this afternoon.

New signing Kaiyne Woolery’s strike 10 minutes after the break cancelled out Liam McAlinden’s first-half opener for the Grecians.

The draw follows up Swindon’s 2-1 win at Carlisle United in last Saturday’s season opener and continues their encouraging start to the new League Two campaign.

Although Town were the dominant force in the second half at the County Ground, Flitcroft felt their below-par start to the game meant his side would have been a tad fortunate to finish with victory.

“I think a point is about right. Certainly in the first half, there was apprehension in our play,” said Flitcroft.

“It didn’t look like it was connecting and I said to the players at half-time, if you put on a front-foot performance and are aggressive in what you do, then the fans will really connect.

“In the second half when we stepped up the tempo and moved the ball better and switched play quicker, we looked a lot more threatening and a lot more dangerous.

“We waited in the first half as opposed to getting on the front foot and really putting passes into Luke Norris and Kaiyne Woolery with a bit more quality but when we did that, we looked a good team in the second half.”

Town’s resurgence in the second period followed Woolery and fellow striker Luke Norris’ introduction at the interval in place of Donal McDermott and Harry Smith.

After that decision made of handsomely for Town, Flitcroft said he will not shy away from making big calls from the sidelines.

“It is not a case of players being scarified – a squad wins a game. No team has ever won a game in a squad sport. They all understand that and know that,” said Flitcroft.

“We got to half-time and it didn’t feel right. At half-time, I always have five or six minutes with my coaching staff and have a look at how we can make changes and what impact they might make and we decided to make the changes.

“That’s why you are in the hot seat to make decisions and I think Luke’s presence up front was massive in the second half and Kaiyne’s pace and threat in behind absolutely worried Exeter to death.

“Making decisions is not a problem. When they come off, they come off and when they don’t, they don’t.

“At the time, you make that decision as you feel in your gut that something is right, and they went on and did well.”
