Paolo Di Canio claims his regime at Swindon is more organised than some Barclays Premier League clubs.
Di Canio, who took over at the County Ground in May, has led the Robins to sixth place in npower League Two on the back of an ongoing 14-match unbeaten run. That, the Italian suggested, is down the intense preparation behind the scenes for each and every match.
"Even if (the players) are not involved every game now, they feel like they're Premier League players. We treat them and we train professionally," he said.
"I have my technical staff work (at) six o'clock in the afternoon with individual players because they need to recover from injury. You will say this is normal but even in the Championship, even some clubs in the Premier League don't have this organisation.
"Normally they used to have Sunday free and Wednesday free, now they feel that if they have Sunday and Wednesday free it doesn't let them become a better professional."
