County Ground, Swindon

Peterborough United got a fully deserved victory over a poor Swindon Town today at the County Ground. The loss means that Swindon drop to second in the League 2 table, 1 point behind Wycombe who won their match this afternoon.

The less said about this match the better. We will keep the pain to a minimum for those unlucky fans who had to wtach this dismal effort.

Former Town loanee Trevor Benjamin started for Peterborough and showed more passion in the first 45 minutes than he did the whole three months at Swindon. Benjamin would score Peterborough's loan goal on the 48th minute after Swindon goalkeeper Peter Brezovan fumbled a save.

There was controversy surrounding the goal as the referee had raised the whistle to his mouth to end the first half but the ref amazingly changed his mind allowing the Peterborough goal to stand. Swindon did deserve to be down probably 3 or 4-0 at half time.

The second half started a bit better after a double half time substitution which saw an unfit Paul Ince come off for Aaron Brown and Fola Onibuje come on for Andy Caton.

Town pressured in the second half and missed a couple of great chances to level. Christian Roberts who was very quiet most of the game hit the post on the 56th minute.

Town pretty much chased the ball for the rest of the game and rushed quite a few free kicks. Swindon would bring on Royce Brownlie towards the end of the match meaning Swindon had 4 strikers on the pitch, however none of them could score.

Town lost the game 1-0 however the more concerning thing is Town have not scored many goals from open play this season. Swindon may need to dip into the transfer market to find a natural goal scorer in January.

Star Player

Fola Onibuje - It was a rubbish afternoon to be a Swindon fan but Onibuje came on and with his pace was involved with everything that went right for Swindon. Should get a starting role shortly. Was unlucky not to convert a cross mid way through the second half.

Didn't go out there today - by the looks of it just as well. Still lets not use the referee as an excuse (take note 'rodge of MKDonuts ) sounds like we outplayed by a better team on the day.

Also I agree Fola deserves a start, we seem a bit lacking up front lately. Lee Peacock for all his running isn't doing much for me.
16/09/2006 19:44:00
We were rubbish today. Lets hope we can re-group for Notts County
16/09/2006 19:46:00
I was there today,, first half bad secong half I thought was better. Do not think we should have Evans and Ince on together and would start with fola. I think Roberts worked his socks off. Peacock works hard but not happening for him yet. It is only 2 loses in 9 games so I will not panic just yet.

Pretty damn poor all round. Fola was good, as was Jerel. I fancy red_gilly by the way

I would rather have a bad patch at the beginning of the season than the end a la Wycombe last season and Oxford many times before.

Lets face the whole thing of manager and new players are still settling in - they have done really well to get the results they have. The 2 blips of Wrexham and Posh may help to put things in perspective.

More twaddle from the MK Donut - stay away unless you have got something to say that is relevant and makes sense. Suggest you become the Site Journalist for MK Donuts the last time I looked on your site they didn't have one. Have to spruce up your diction and spelling first though.
