Danny Wilson will not allow Swindon's automatic promotion dream to 'drift away' and merely settle for a play-off place despite dropping more points in a 1-1 draw against Exeter.

The Robins, who lost 3-0 at Colchester on Saturday, blew the chance to regain second spot as they needed a stoppage-time own goal from Exeter defender Matt Taylor to salvage a point at the County Ground.

With four games remaining, Wilson insists his side will give all they can to try and claim a place in the Championship next season.

"All we can do is keep the pressure on the teams up there and roll our sleeves up and have a real go, that will be our aim over the next four games," said Wilson.

"The one thing we don't want to do is to let this chance that we've got just drift away."

He added: "We don't want it to peter out and just be satisfied with being in the play-offs and give ourselves a pat on the back.

"We want to give it a really good shot at getting second place and if we don't manage it and don't get there then fine. But I don't want to be regretting it in four games' time saying we wish we had done this, that or the other."
