Robins next up !
Swindon - the home of the superhero
After Saturday's uplifting first half display against the Owls, the Robins are looming ever large on the horizon. Let's hope we can beating the birds but not in a premiership footballer kind of way.
Saturday was altogether better fayre from the lads than that of the previous home game. The second half was a bit of a non-event but the first saw a committed and team performance as we've witnessed in many a week.
Had it not been for Weaver we'd have been 3 or 4 up within the half hour but the law of sod dictated that he'd have a good game.
Not sure why Doherty played again or why Wagstaff and Benson weren't subbed in the second as neither was offering much. However, beggars can't be choosers and the win was an improvement.
As much as Wednesday were poor this was a performance of greater effort from almost every player.
Martin won't be playing tomorrow following his fifth yellow card of the season. That only differs from the others he's collected in that it was for diving........the remainder seem to have come from arguing with referees.
Hopefully Doherty will be on the bench and Fortune will return.
I'm going tomorrow and am looking forward to it. Hopefully we can get a win that will propel us further up the league..........fingers crossed !
I saw my first game back in the sixties when my dad took me along on a very wet and windy day. I recall having to turn my back to the pitch because of it.....shame you can't do that sometimes now !
I sit in the East Stand with my lads who both keep the faith.
I live 75 miles from the Valley having moved away from the area in 1984 but my heart has never left !
