Swindon 2, Millwall 1
County Ground, Swindon
3 May 2008, 3pm K.O
Swindon Town win their last game of the season 2-1 after coming from behind to beat Millwall at the County Ground.
Danny Senda got the Lions off to the best possible start scoring 6 minutes into the game giving the visitors a 1-0 advantage.
At 31 minutes in Swindon Town was awarded a penalty after Michael Timlin was fouled by Paul Robinson. Simon Cox was composed and scored leveling things up at 1-1.
Bad news came for Millwall just before half time as Danny Senda who scored the goal for the visitors earlier landed awkwardly and dislocated his knee. Senda would be stretchered off in agony. You could see the pain on Senda's face right away clinching at Hasney Aljofree who was defending. Richard Shaw came on for Senda as we went to half time.
Anthony McNamee who had a poor half in Orange boots changed at half time into white boots. This may sound irrelevant but on the 51st minute, McNamee would score his second goal of the season giving Town a 2-1 lead. We are convinced it was the bright orange boots that made him play poorly.
Town would hold on to the 2-1 lead until the end of the match as about 3,000 (slight exaggeration) police showed up in front of the Millwall end which seemed a bit over the top and actually seemed to wind people up whilst there was no problems earlier on between fans. Better safe than sorry I suppose.
So that's it, The 2007/08 season is over with many up's and down's. Town finish 13th and head into the summer planning for a Championship promotion push.
COME ON YOU REDS!
