Swindon Town 2, Chester 0
Saunders Honda Stadium
Friday 1 September 2006
Swindon Town continue their perfect season with a convincing 2-0 win over Chester City at the Saunders Honda Stadium this evening. Over 800 travelling fans who had to battle major road works and congestion due to accidents on the M5 and M6 roared their team onto victory.
The first half both teams looked very sloppy and it appeared that entertaining football was not on the cards for the evening. Aaron Brown had a goal dis-allowed after the referee ruled that Swindon had handballed during the lead up. Both teams went into the break about even. It was the most dissapointing football Swindon had played thus far this season.
After the break Swindon appeared to come out all guns blazing. Dennis Wise must have had strong words with his team. The team appeared anxious in the first half. Something along the lines of calm down must have been said as Town looked more confident on the ball after the break.
Just after the break Lee Peacock converted a Jack Smith free-kick to open the scoring for Town which sent the 800 plus Town fans into raptures. Songs of "we are going up" and "we are invincible" rang throughout the terraces.
Chester looked to have equalised when Lawrence Wilson sent a screamer towards the goal, only to be saved by keeper Peter Brezovan who made an excellent stretching save.
Things then went sour for Town as Jerel Ifil was red carded for kicking the ball away. This was his second yellow of the game and will miss the trip to Wrexham next Saturday.
Town desperatly needed a second goal to give them a bit of a cushion. Lee Peacock who scored the first one got onto the end of the ball and converted an Andy Nicholas free kick for Town's second goal of the evening. Peacock who had a great game had the fans singing "Super Lee Peacock".
After 5 minutes of injury time, The game was over and the 800 plus travelling Town fans were sent home happy. 6 out of 6, Who could ever expect us to start the season this well and only conceed 2 goals all season?
