Tommy Wright wants more from Swindon Town top performer

Swindon Town have made a good start to their League Two 19/20 campaign. They currently sit fifth in the division and are just three points off the top.

Coach Tommy Wright, though, is not completely satisfied with one of his top-performing players, so far, this season.

Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday’s clash with Leyton Orient, he’s called on winger Lloyd Isgrove to improve on one particular aspect to his game.

It is worth remembering that 26-year-old has already recorded four assists in just his opening six League Two fixtures. A record that would, for most managers, be the perfect scenario for your creative wideman.

The supporters too, as the former Southampton player has quickly established himself as a fan favourite at the County Ground after arriving from Barnsley on a free transfer in the summer.

Wright, though, wants more. For all of his play-making ability, Isgrove is yet to score a goal this season.

On that, the Swindon man told the Swindon Advertiser: “Lloyd has got a very good end product but what I would say is that he needs to score more himself.

“I have always told him that in the time I have had him. He has got a great record with assists, but sometimes he has got to chip in with goals.

“I think he has got to get in certain areas where he can score goals, which he can do better, and we have spoken about that.”

In fact, scoring goals is something the attacker has struggled with throughout his career. In his seven-year professional career, he has only managed two goals which came several years apart at Peterborough and Barnsley.

The two worked together at the Tykes, and Wright is not surprised to see just how quickly the supporters have taken to him.

“He has been popular since he came to the club. The fans like him, finished Wright. “You have got to remember that Lloyd has played at a higher level.”

It was out Southampton where Isgrove made a Premier League appearance as a substitute against Liverpool in 2014. His footballing CV, for a League Two player, is quite something. He starred for Barnsley in their League One play-off final victory over Millwall, scoring the third goal in a 3-1 win and made over 30 appearances in the Championship.
