Fallout from a Thrashing

Fallout from a Thrashing

'What disappoints me more than anything is that we've handed goals away' bemoaned Danny Wilson to the local press after Town were thrashed 4-0 at home to Bristol Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

It was the second comfortable win for Rovers against Town this season and this time it puts Swindon in a nervous situation because now they face three away fixtures in a row and none of them can be considered easy. First, Town take on Milton Keynes Dons as they attempt to keep in touch with the Play-Offs, beating Swindon would help.

Next Saturday, the club travel to Brighton and then to St. Marys to take on Southampton a week on Tuesday.

This coming week will be a significant test of character for Danny Wilson and his side. Here's hoping they can re-discover the Play-Off form.

It wasn't going to be easy anyway. but this poor display isn't a disaster but has made it more difficult. We have a small squad and seem to be relying on too few, when they have a bad game or are missing we suffer. I'm still reeling a bit from Saturday but then look at the others results and most are dropping points left right and centre. Possibly a draw @ MK will help but I think the playoffs are at best now, which is far more than expected. Is this Picard ever going to score a goal for us, bit of let down so far - came with all this hype but has failed to deliver or look like delivering. I'm on a winge roll here - why do we struggle to get loan signings - when other clubs get them in with little or no problem. DW has done excetionally well and deserves full credit for this, but there are one or two chinks in his armour, his use of tactics and substitutions has been ineffective IMO. Winge over ...... lets look forward now and hopefully return to winning ways.
