Swindon Town Newcomers Report

Three matches into the 2007/08 League One season, we take a look at how the newcomers are performing this season.

Craig Easton Easton Performed well against Charlton and Luton Town over the weekend. Scored the decisive goal against promotion favourites Luton Town. The highly touted midfielder was expected to join a Championship side in the Summer after leaving Leyton Orient but opted to re-join former boss Paul Sturrock at Swindon.

Kaid Mohamed Mohamed has yet to really feature this season but made a few good runs in his debut at Northampton. Mohamed will likely play in the reserve match this week and hope to score a few goals to give Sturrock a selection headache this weekend.

Miguel Comminges The French midfielder has looked very effective so far this season. He is not afraid to run and can do at some speed. Came close to scoring in his debut at Northampton. Should he start he may score goals from midfield which will take the pressure off of the front two.

Hasney Aljofree Signed from Plymouth Argyle for 50,000 in the Summer, Aljofree has been a revelation at the back with Jerel ifil. Aljofree and Ifil could very well be the best back pairing in League One this season. It will be very hard for former captain Ady Williams to get back in the side as long as Aljofree is fit. Aljofree is vocal and leads from the back. Sturrock knew what he was getting when he signed this player in the Summer. Has been a delight to watch.

Chris Blackburn Blackburn has not yet featured for the first team since his arrival from League Two side Morecambe. Blackburn was influential in getting Morecambe promoted to The Football League but with the defence doing so well it has been hard for Blackburn to get his shot.

Steve Adams Adams had two years of injuries however he looks as if he has overcome them. Adams has done well for someone who had been out for two seasons at Northampton and against Charlton. Missed Saturday`s match against Luton due to a hamstring problem but is expected to be fit for Saturday`s match against Cheltenham Town.

Ibon Arrieta Arrieta in my opinion needs to start instead of Blair Sturrock. Arrieta set up the winning goal Saturday against Luton and had looked impressive when he came on. He runs his socks off and deserves a start to see what he can do. Ibon has featured in all three games so far however has not been on long enough to score goals. He has also received a lack of service when playing up front.
