The reason you are top and not us is because you have managed to see off the real cruddy sides whilst we have not, consistently.
We have gained more points than any other team when playing the top 12 sides, averaging 2.2 points per game. Against the bottom half we only average 1.5 points per game.
As with most things, it's consistency that gets you to the top
And our ability to mix it up is often the difference between us beating the sides you say you struggle against. Look at Crawley at home, 0-0 game looking destined for a draw, we go direct then 85th minute Ayling scores from a corner. Crawley away 1-1 we go direct and once again 85th minute Ayling scores from a corner. I think it's fair to say Swindon wouldn't have picked up 6 points from those situations as your 'passing' style wouldn't allow for it. I'm not saying we don't play good football, 90% of our game is on the floor. But we can, and we do mix it up, which is often the difference between seeing off those bottom half sides who park the bus and make it difficult
