Rowe looking forward to Swindon clash

On loan midfielder Tommy Rowe says he is looking forward to Saturday’s visit to Swindon after sitting out the FA Cup win over Southend last weekend.

“Initially I was up for playing in the cup, but then found out I wasn’t able to,” he told the club’s official website.

“The rest has probably done me some good seen as I’ve played six games in a month on the back of not playing at all in so long.

“To get through that month without any injuries was brilliant and hopefully the break will do me good in the long run.

“I’m raring to go. Training on Monday and Tuesday was brilliant for me to get rid of a lot of pent up energy.

“We want to continue where we left off in October in what is another big month for us. We need to push on and go again really.”

United travel to Wiltshire looking for their seventh win in eight games, but Rowe admits it will be a tough game against Martin Lings’ side in what will be the new Robins’ boss first home game in charge.

“It’s a tough game. They like to pass the ball and play a good brand of football.

“They’re going through a transition at the minute following a change of management, but ultimately our frame of mind doesn’t change.

“We’ve got to go there and want to win, but we’ve got to do the right things first and then hopefully we’ll come away with the points.”
