Very happy with how positive we were in that half. Crisp passing and very competitive, we certainly gave them something to think about at times. But they have had the best chances and were denied a very good claim for a penalty. Sweeney, Martin, Law and Bowman very good and Ajose certainly better in this game.

Very good half of entertaining football. Swindon the better side but City playing good as well. Ajose needs to contribute more. And Taylor having a better game for a change.

Is it just me or is Grecian Player even worse than usual today? It seems to cut out every 10-20 seconds?
Mine is working fine but the main commentator has been absolutely dreadful, at one point discussing his trip to watch the cricket at Taunton while City were attacking.. Steve Tully has added a few interesting insights, though.

Wow, that was a frenetic and highly entertaining half of end-to-football. We worked hard in defence but stuggled to cope with Swindon's slick, pacy passing football. We couldn't have had too many complaints if the penalty was given but the Swindon player had lost the ball and was clearly waiting for the slightest bit of contact before going down like he'd been shot. Swindon also had a shot cleared off the line and hit the post but seemed to be slightly running out of ideas as the half came to end.
Going forward we still seem unbalanced and Nicky Ajose is barely in the game. Surely at some point soon Matt Taylor is going to have to bite the bullet and start with Lee Martin.

A period of substained pressure by Swindon but no goal.

Jay on for Jake Taylor.
