Jordan Maguire-Drew hailed Swindon Town as a "very good" team after their comprehensive 3-1 win over Leyton Orient yesterday.

The Robins raced into a three-goal lead by half-time, a half they dominated in all aspects, as goals from Keshi Anderson and Jerry Yates either side of an unfortunate Joe Widdowson own goal put Orient to the sword.

An improved showing in the second period saw Maguire-Drew get one back for the O's, but the damage had already been done by a side that are expected to challenge for promotion this season.

Speaking after the game, Maguire-Drew said: "They're a very good team and the way they've started shows they're a very good team - their movement, how they move the ball and how they pulled us out of different positions, you can tell they had a game plan and in the first half they were very good at it.

"Rightly so, the three goals we were very disappointed with but when we come out in the second half I thought we were very positive in our response and towards the end of the game I thought we were pinning them back and looking like a real threat.

“The first half, we’ve just got to forget about that and analyse it, we’ll do that with Ross [Embleton], Danny [Webb] and Jobi [McAnuff], and we’ll work on that during the week and look to go to Exeter and start the way we finished this game. That’s all we can do.”

Maguire-Drew's introduction at half-time for Dan Happe brought around a change in shape for Orient and they found far more luck going forward in a 4-4-2 formation, with 21-year-old operating on the right-hand side of midfield.

His performance certainly caught the eye, as did a spectacular goal with 16 minutes remaining, and performances such as that are something that he wants to continue to provide.

He said: "When I play I always try to be positive. If I can get a shot off then I will, or a cross or beat my man, I'll always try and get the crowd off their feet and try to be positive when I can.

"That's all I had in my head and when I had the opportunity to shoot I did and luckily for me it went in so I'll just keep doing that."

The O’s had chances to further reduce the deficit late on, with Louis Dennis flashing wide and then being denied by an excellent Luke McCormick save, and Maguire-Drew says those are the things that happen when you make a step up in league.

He said: “That’s what happens when you step up the level, fine margins get smaller. I’m sure we’re going to be fine. When it was the second half today you wouldn’t have thought it was 3-0 to them and when we got the goal and they started to sit deeper and we pinned them in, if we can do that next week at Exeter we’ll have a very positive outcome.”

Despite some positive results this season, there have been tinges of disappointment with other scores that have come in and the overall league position of the club, but Maguire-Drew insists that things will click soon.

He said: "Everyone is working really hard, doing extras with Webby, Jobi and Ross. We'll do that this week, we'll look at the goals, we'll analyse them and see where we can improve.

"We will improve because we're all hungry young players and with the senior players mixed in and helping us I'm sure we'll get there."
