Swindon Town 2, MK Dons 1
County Ground, Swindon
Tuesday 12 September 2006
Swindon Town remain top of League 2 after scoring 2 penalties against the Milton Keynes Dons this evening at the County Ground.
Dons took the lead mid first half when Swindon failed to clear a corner and Jon-Paul McGovern managed to get on the end of it and give the visitors a 1-0 other The Robins.
The resilient Robins who last season would have given up and become frustrated after going 1-0 down so early in the game got back into the game thanks to Paul Ince who was making his first start since signing for Swindon. Ince was brought down by Dean Lewington and the referee awarded a penalty. Jack Smith stepped up and slotted in the bottom left corner to make it 1-1 going into the break.
Town enjoyed most of the possession in the second half but Town got a lucky break when they were awarded with another penalty mid second half. Andy Caton was brought down by Lewington, coincidentally the player who caused the first penalty also. Paul Evans stepped up and scored Town`s second to make it 2-1 to the home side.
Town had a late scare infront of the 8,000 plus as the MK Dons appeared to have equalised with about 2 minutes to go. A cracking shot from Ben Chorley looked destined to go in, however the shot found the woodwork and then finally the final whistle went to ensure Swindon remain undefeated at home and remain top of League Two.
