Michael Flynn said that he is not interested in the competition he is playing in, he is just looking for a win to kickstart a run as Swindon Town take on Aldershot Town in the FA Cup.

Swindon begin their FA Cup journey against National League opposition in Aldershot, hoping to find some form after a run of just one win in six League Two matches heading into the cup tie and looking to snap a run of nine straight cup defeats.

The FA Cup has been a difficult hunting ground for Swindon of late, getting beyond the first round just three times in the last 11 seasons and have been knocked out at the hands of Non-League opposition on six occasions in the last decade.

He said: “I don’t know [if the game comes at a good time], I will be honest.

“If we win and then go on a winning run then of course it did, but if we win and then we don’t go on a winning run then it didn’t.

“I am not into all of that, I want to win every game, whether it is the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, or the league, you want to build that winning run.

“Look at Stockport, they have won ten in a row in the league, it is unbelievable, I know they have got a lot of financial backing, but they are a squad where they know how to win football matches and I take my hat off to them.

“They have had a few seasons together now, the bulk of the squad, and we are just getting started on our journey.”

The Shots have picked up in recent weeks and prior to defeat against Dorking Wanderers last weekend, had won four straight games across all competitions.

Speaking to club media, Aldershot boss Tommy Widrrington said: “We can only put this defeat to the side like we always do, win, lose or, draw we move onto the next game.

“As sure as eggs are eggs, it is going to be a tougher task next week than anything we are going to get in this division.

“It is a free hit for us, Swindon are a Football League club who have played in the Premier League and we will go there and I hope we will play in a way that gives a really good representation of Aldershot Town.”
