Morecambe 0 Swindon 1: Ugly and hard-fought, yet a vital victory…

Swindon battled manfully to an ugly, hard-fought 1-0 win over mid-table Morecambe, thanks to a trademark half-yard poke from Paul Benson, writes Benjamin Beaumont. It wasn’t pretty, but who cares..?

Vic Morgan Blog: Ship Shape and Bristol Fashion

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
