Swindon 1, Notts County 1
County Ground, Swindon
Saturday 30 December 2006
A late goal from Michael Timlin ensures that Swindon Town draw 1 all with Notts County this afternoon at the County Ground.
The game played in windy, raining conditions was never going to be pretty as stated by Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock in his after game interview.
"The wind is a real key factor in this stadium and it's something we will have to work on before games. We couldn't get any rhythm but we have to give NC a lot of credit. Perhaps we were fortunate to go into the break just one goal down" Sturrock said.
Notts County took the lead on the 35th minute with a goal from Lawrie Dudfield who managed to get on the end of a Jay Smith free kick., Dudfield was playing his first game since returning from an illness.
On loan midfielder Michael Timlin scored a goal from 25 yards to secure a point for Swindon.
With results going in favour of Lincoln and MK Dons, Swindon now find themselves 3 points off automatic promotion with a massive game at MK Dons on New Years Day.
