Swindon away. What was the score? Won 2-0
Chalk that one up. A nice win, couple of goals, a clean sheet and a pen, I would like to think we might get a few more of those this season. Well done to Reidy for tucking it away, twice.
Ambrose got the other and it appears that Marcus Bent was again a real dominance in the match. Pards made 3 changes. Powell playing was not too much of a surprise and Todorov was rested, or shall we say dropped and replaced by Izale McLeod, who by all accounts did well. Whether Pards left Paddy McCarthy out because of his performance on Saturday or just to give Fortune a run out, I don't know but I wouldn't be shocked to see Fortune occupy a berth at The Brittania on Saturday. With his history there, it would be a good stage for him to stake a regular place.
As for me, of course the game didn't quite carry the stress levels of some of last season's games and hopefully some of this, but full marks to the official site for an improved game update service. I had the Sky Sports Score Centre open to get goal updates and then a mate rung me to let me know of Ambrose's goal and then my Mum text me at the final whistle.

.What Pards' said: "Marcus knows this is a big, big year for him and I thought he played well. We worked on him a bit yesterday and it paid dividends tonight. He was very unselfish on both occasions for the goals."A bottle of fizzy pop for:
Marcus Bent. To be honest I'd have thought every year as a professional footballer is a big year, but it does look like the journeyman is finally up for it.
