Looks like this game will finally be played at the 3rd attempt!

Our fans are on a bit of a downer after Saturday and the lack of signings.

Going for 1:1 here, another step towards the magic 52.

Its time we got a result against Swindon so I'm predicting a narrow win.

2-1

We need a response after Saturday, we'll probably win in a dull and quiet affair and then be one point off the play offs, raising fan expectation, you know the rest...

We have to beat these sooner or later and today is probably the best chance of that but we need a massive reaction after the performance against Wigan, generally speaking we have reacted well to a bad defeat and would love to keep the 1 defeat all season at home going for as long as possible!

We've got 2 CBs - both out injured. We have 3 strikers - 1 out I injured.

And Balmy is playing from the off - he's beyond shit

Joke of a line-up. How Williams can profess himself happy with that Town squad is beyond me. It's going to be a long ol' slug.

Good start, hit post with a great strike too. Swindon having loads of the ball in own half, their keepers a bit dodge

Well an expected defeat but we didn't get thrashed I expected. Sounded like we weren't totally minging either.

Roll on Saturday and a mauling at Gillingham.

And injuries or not, it's embarrassing that 1 day after transfer deadline day we can't fill a fucking substitutes bench.

A marginally better performance than the Bradford draw. Scored early, then hit the post then barely registered an effort for the rest of the game, summed up by our leftback being our most attacking threat, scoring and missing a sitter. Swindon had loads of possession but fortunately were completely toothless.

Ugly win, Swindon had plenty of possession and kept it well but was so slow even when they had chance to break away they would just go sideways or backwards allowing us to get back into position.

Second half we should of done better with two or three great chances to give AJ a tap in but despite twice having a 3 v 1 situation in the box didn't get the final ball right.

Theo battled well but looked a bit of the pace, Dicko and Duffy were superb tonight after being awful Saturday.

Point of the playoffs and huge game Sunday can we finally turn up when the top six spot is close!

Chuffed to take four points from Swindon as we've got 0 in recent years!

Swindon had loads of possession playing in pretty triangles between the keeper and centre halves, but only mustered one clear cut chance all game which the striker passed it straight to Alnwick.

We had a game plan which was to keep our discipline and shape and it worked, should have won by more but I'll take that every day.

Don't get the fans moaning that we hardly had the ball either! We did far more with 38% than They did with 62%! Surely that's all that matters?!

Three more wins of the first target of 52 and safety hopefully rack them up quick and not have a collapse of last seasons scale! Considering everyone expected us to finish bottom we've nearly doubled the bottom sides tally and v signed the bookies again!
