The Swansea City loan man scored the crucial third goal as Town saw off the Robins to record their first away win of the season in Sky Bet League One.

It was a composed finish from the 21-year-old, who slammed the ball low and hard past Swindon goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux after Alex Revell had cleverly dummied JJ Hooper's right-wing cross.

"I screamed at him 'overs, overs' as hard as I could and luckily he let it go and I put it in, so I'm thankful to him," said Gorre of Revell's piece of selfless team play.

"I just thought I'd try to get it underneath the goalkeeper and thankfully it worked.

"I'm still getting used to league football because it's the first time for me, and I'm really pleased to get on the score sheet and more importantly get the three points.

"It meant a lot to me to score and I wanted to share it with the fans."

The Cobblers are up to fourth in the table, and have lost just one of their 10 league games to date.

Tuesday's win was a backs-to-the-wall performance at times by Rob Page's men, but Gorre says that just highlights the character and will to win of the squad.

"It's a great victory for us away from home against Swindon who are a good footballing team," said Gorre.

"We did well, we dug in and got the three points that we wanted.

"We've got great character and leaders in the changing room.

"We've got lots of experience with the likes of Matt Taylor and Alex Revell and everyone thrives off them.

"I think they help us a lot and the team spirit is unbelievable."

The Cobblers are back in action on Saturday when they host Bristol Rovers at Sixfields, a team who have also adjusted well to life in a higher division after being promoted from league two last season.

The Gas have been in good form recently, but suffered a 1-0 setback at Sheffield United on Tuesday night.

They are 10th in league one, just four points behind the Cobblers, and will travel with confidence, but Gorre says Northampton are going into every fixture believing they can win.

"To be honest we take every game as it comes, and we go in there to win the game," he said. "That's how we're feeling at the moment.

"We feel like we can win every game so we've just got to go into every game full of confidence and see where it takes us."
