Town v Millwall

Whatever happened at The New Den, the Leeds United result ultimately would determine which team was promoted. For a few moments after Leeds had gone down to 10 men it seemed the  impossible may happen and Rovers may defeat Leeds or at least hold them to a draw. Shortly after half time news of Rovers going 1-0 up fed through

Player of the Year?

The Swindon Advertiser Player of the Year voting closed Thursday night, my vote being cast and awaiting the result at the Brentford game on Saturday, I’d thought I’d share my thoughts on who I think deserves to win the coverted title.

Town were grateful they weren’t pushed, having had a day less

Town v MK Dons

Town were at the MK Dons tonight.  A rearranged fixture from a snowy January.  One of our two games in hand along with a visit to Southampton next week. Wilson made two team changes with Morrison and Pericard in for Greer and Austin who drop to the bench. Morrisons mistake led to the opening goal after 90 seconds with Wilbraham taking the
