Preston Humiliate Swindon 4-1

Preston North End gave woeful Swindon Town a footballing lesson which soon wont be forgotten on Sunday.

With close to a 1,000 Town fans making the journey on the back of Swindon`s thrilling 4-3 win over Stoke City on the weekend, expectations were high.

From the first kick, Town were totally outclassed and it didn`t take long for Town to be on the back foot thanks to 2 appalling goals. Akpo Sodje would catch Town keeper Wes Foderingham out for the first goal and Nicky Wroe would increase the arrears to 2-0 5 minutes later thanks to a stray kick from Foderingham which went straight back to Wroe who powerfully slammed home the second.

Just 20 minutes in Town boss Paolo Di Canio would bizarrely substitute keeper Wes Foderingham for Leigh Bedwell giving him his first taste of league action.

Just prior to half time PNE new boy Stuart Beavon would welcome Bedwell to the Football League by scoring a third making it 3-0 at half time.

Town would change things around second half taking off Luke Rooney who looked incredibly poor and replaced him by John Bostock who would put in a good shift.

Town looked better in the second half and managed to reduce the arrears to 3-1 thanks to Rafa De Vita`s goal on 58 minutes which gave Town fans some hope.

That hope was short lived as John Welsh slammed home the ball from outside the box to make it 4-1.

Absolutely poor performance from Town, but the big talking point was the substitution of Wes Foderingham.

Star Player

John Bostock - One of the only players who seemed to care.
