Swindon 2 Torquay Utd 0: Home comforts soothe Town before trip to Wembley Way

Swindon Town sealed a very necessary win with a highly polished performance against second-placed Torquay at the County Ground last night, writes Daniel Hunt. It should be no surprise because this was Town’s eleventh straight home league win and fifteenth straight home win in all competitions (if you class the penalty shootout victory against AFC Wimbledon as a win!). Paolo

Crewe 2 Swindon 0: Successive away defeat cuts Town’s lead

Swindon Town’s quest for the league title suffered a setback Saturday, as they suffered their second consecutive 2-0 away defeat. The defeat makes a seemingly unassailable lead, slightly less unassailable as a Torquay victory closed the gap to four points. Rosie MacGillivray was at Gresty Road to report. Paolo Di Canio – ever predictable in ensuring his team selection is anything but – rung the changes

Swindon 1 ‘Nam 0: Cheltenham lose chance to play for the ‘Gold’ Cup

They huffed, they puffed, but they couldn’t blow the house down. Despite a huge dominance in possession, Cheltenham Town couldn’t recover from failing to convert a first half penalty and then going behind shortly afterwards to Paul Benson’s ninth goal of the season. Town’s 1-0 victory was, by all accounts, by the slimmest of margins, but true champions ride their luck, with

Swindon 4 Dagenham 0: Daggers’ dawn cut short by red & white army

Having been unable to breach the triple-decker bus parked in the triple-sided stadium on Saturday, Tuesday’s game could not come quick enough to put the Swindon Town TGV firmly back on the tracks heading at speed towards League One, writes STFC007. In the build up to the game the level of optimism from most Swindon Town fans was refreshing – as usually

Oxford United 2 Swindon 0: Derby defeat spoils Town’s unbeaten run

Swindon’s superb run of ten straight league victories was brought to an end today. A crazy three minute spell, followed by a backs-to-the-wall performance by ten man Oxford gave the home side the three points, and the bragging rights; the Town’s local rivals recording only their second ever double over Swindon, and their first since 1972/73, writes Richard Banyard. The game started

Swindon 2 Accrington 0: Benson at the double for record breaking Town

A ninth win on the bounce eclipsing a club record which has stood since 1926 and yet Paolo Di Canio called his side’s second half display “rubbish” and “lacking humility” writes Neil Evans…. PDC is clearly a “glass half empty” kind of manager, and maybe that’s no bad thing with games coming thick and fast. For this game he made

Swindon 2 Shrewsbury 1: Town finally return to the top with gritty win

A series of postponed and re-arranged fixtures delayed the inevitable but Town have finally reached top place by beating promotion rivals Shrewsbury 2-1. As a spectacle, it was far from a classic but the gritty performance will prove to be as vital as our recent emphatic victories over Crawley and Southend writes Rosie MacGillivray. Paolo Di Canio kept an unchanged team from our win at Hereford as he

Swindon 3 Crawley 0: We make it six nil on aggregate…

After Swindon Town’s emphatic 4-1 win at Southend, it was time to face another early table topping team Crawley Town. The West Sussex side sought to enhance their ‘Champions Elect’ tag as the bookies’ favourite to win League Two… or would they become another victim on Swindon’s seemingly unstoppable run, writes STFC007. In the build-up to the game, Crawley’s coach Steve Evans had
