Win Some Lose Some…
It’s Friday, so it must be time for the latest weekly review by BBC Devon’s Vic Morgan.
Two home matches and one win although the victory didn’t perhaps come in the most likely game.
It’s fair to say Saturday’s performance wasn’t the best. Crawley didn’t come to play attacking football that’s for sure. To be honest it was rather drab. Still, Swindon remained in the top three and even though the poor run has cost victories, it hasn’t cost too much ground.
It’s difficult to know why last weekend was so disappointing. Certainly the Town enjoyed the majority of possession but the points slipped away. It looked a likely draw after Andy Williams equaliser but the visitors late goal was worthy of winning any match. A rasping shot on the angle beating Wes Foderingham.
A miserable Saturday night then wondering if Swindon’s season may have hit a stumbling block difficult to climb over. The one positive from the weekend was the season ticket being renewed and another campaign to look forward too.
Work commitments meant I missed the midweek match against Bradford City. By all accounts the first half was back to Swindon at their most irresistible. A return to the side for Massimo Luongo saw him grab two goals and even though the Bantams pulled one back the points were secured.
Following the game there appeared to be a few questions asked about the level of support. Certainly the aforementioned Foderingham appeared on Twitter suggesting that he was a little disappointed in the backing the team received.
Maybe it’s because everybody is feeling a little tense right now. We’re entering the final few games of a campaign which has promised much and nobody wants to see that promise wasted.
It’s off to Crewe this weekend. A ground which is served by a particularly good chip shop. So no prizes for guessing where the pre match meal will come from. Gresty Road is a decent ground and of course the two towns share a railway heritage. You can’t miss that at Crewe with the stadium right next to the station.
Hopefully Swindon’s winning ways will continue and the journey back home will be better than the week before.
Keep it loud keep it proud keep it SWINDON!
