2 - 2
Crystal Palace

County Ground, Swindon

Attendance: 2,394

Referee:

Swindon Town took a 2-0 lead against Championship side Crystal Palace before having to settle for a 2-2 draw. Strikes from Christian Roberts and Jerel Ifil at one stage gave Town a well earned 2-0 before half time.

Palace who looked rejuvinated after going down 2-0, erased the deficit with goals from Sandor Torghelle and Gary Borrowdale.

There were no real injury concerns during this game except to Jack Smith who suffered a bruised hand that was swollen up after the game. After a visit to the hospital it was revealed that his hand is NOT broken.

Manager Dennis Wise seemed happy with the team's efforts. After the exciting match Wise spoke to the official website and said, "I was really pleased with the team today. Overall I thought we created a lot of chances and were worthy of the draw at least.

"Christian took his goal well and the strikers are scoring goals. He is looking lean, fit and I'm pleased he is doing so well." Wise finished.

Star Player

Curtis Weston - Played well in Midfield and judging by all accounts, should not be playing in League Two. Will be a very good player for the future and will wow fans at the County Ground this season with his pace and finesse.

Well from what I saw, we have a completely different team from last season. They were fit, creative and passed the ball well. Defence was good and Ifil is a different player. I can't wait until August. If we play like that in most games we will go up as Champions.
