Wrexham 2, Swindon Town 1
Saturday 9 September 2006
Attendance: 5,257 (717 Swindon)
Swindon Town suffer their first defeat of the season to Wrexham but still find themselves top of the League 2 table.
Wrexham ended Swindon's winning run at 6 games after a poor second half ensured defeat at the racecourse this afternoon.
Town got off to a flying start and looked the better side the first half. Paul Evans scored a fantastic goal with a 35 yard free kick hitting the back of the net.
Town looked to have taken a 2-0 lead heading into the break however Christian Roberts was ruled off side meaning the score was 1-0 to the visitors going into half time.
Wrexham came out the second half the better side. Swindon keeper Peter Brezovan made a rare error and fouled Wrexham's Chris Llewellyn inside the box to give the home side a penalty that was slotted home by Ryan Valentine.
Less that 2 minutes later Brezovan mis-judged a ball and Mark Jones drilled home the winner on 68 Minutes.
Paul Ince made his Swindon debut but did not do much to add to the side. Was vocal and had one attempt at goal but did not appear match fit.
Royce Brownlie saw a late chance fly over the goal.
With results going the right way, Swindon Town still sit at the top of League 2, 1 point above Lincoln City, however the big test will be Tuesday night at the County Ground against the MK Dons.
