Ariyibi Aiming for Consistency at Swindon

21 April 2016

Tuesday's goalscorer Gboly Ariyibi is now looking to push forward with his increasing consistency as the Spireites hunt League One safety at Swindon Town on Saturday.

Ariyibi's finely-taken rebound strike earned the hosts a point about Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday with the Spireites now five points clear of the bottom four with nine points left to play for.

The winger spoke about his consistency: "I think for any young player it's hard and you need that backing from the manager, and ever since he came in he's given me that and I thank him a lot.

"As a flair player you can't win the games all the time but I think you can see that I'm getting better all round, with my defending as well I'm trying my best and it's all coming.

"My goal came at a crucial time, in the last two games we've conceded quite early and been poor and it's not always the best feeling. We grew into the game and I was happy to get my goal.

"The ball dropped to me inside the box awkwardly. I was in the right place and the right time and I got a good connection with it. I just reacted, like my similar one against Port Vale, it's about being in the box and gambling really.

"More goals will come as I grow into the game, but we're in a battle for the minute and any sort of goal goes."

Ariyibi says that with a win likely to secure league survival at the County Ground, the Spireites are excited to get out and get the job done.

"Every player is itching to get on the pitch," he said. "It's been hard to show our confidence because of the position we're in but we're going to go on Saturday and give it everything we've got.

"Away from home sometimes there's not as much pressure and our away record speaks for itself so I'm sure it will be a good game."
