Swindon Town assistant Shirtliff asks for fewer errors

Swindon Town assistant manager Peter Shirtliff says the Robins need to make fewer errors if they are to avoid relegation from League One.

Town currently lie 20th in the third tier, above the relegation zone on goal difference alone.

"No matter who seems to play for us at the moment, we're getting the same sort of error all the time," Shirtliff told BBC Wiltshire.

"We can't keep conceding goals or we will never win games."

He added: "We're in transition at the moment. We're not effective in both boxes and that needs to be addressed."

Swindon's next three fixtures see them meet Walsall, Plymouth and Dagenham & Redbridge, all of whom currently reside in the League One drop zone.

"It's up to us," said Shirtliff. "It's only us that can affect results.

"The players have got to out a good shift it. I don't think anything is down to a lack of hard work but we sometimes lack of thought and some devilment in both boxes."
