Notts County 0-3 Swindon Town

Joe Jones

Ai ai ai. Not a good day at the office by any means tonight. Swindon Town were just too rampant for Notts today, as the Robins secured a thumping 3-0 win at Meadow Lane.

To make things worse, Liam Noble was also sent off for the Magpies, who were simply outplayed by the visitors on a frosty day in Nottingham. You can see why they're in with a shout of automatic promotion.

Shaun Derry's charges made the worst possible start when they conceded after just six minutes, Massimo Luongo releasing Andy Williams who beat Louis Laing to slip a shot beyond Roy Carroll and into the far corner.

The Magpies kept possession well during those opening stages and had a few tentative half-chances, but Swindon were razor-sharp in the final third, Luongo very nearly striking again after being given plenty of space 17 minutes in.

Jonathan Obika then had a shot cleared off the line midway through the first half before getting the ball into the back of the net, but seeing the goal ruled out for offside.


Towards the end of the first half, Ben Gladwin curled an effort wide, but Haydn Hollis also came close with a header in added time to give the hosts hope of mounting a comeback after the break.

This wouldn't happen - Williams struck his second of the afternoon in the 54th minute when he converted a pinpoint cross from Gladwin at the far post to leave Notts with a mountain to climb.

And just two minutes later, Noble's challenge on Nathan Smith saw the Notts man get his marching orders and all but kill off any hope of claiming something from the game.

Ultimately, the Robins would strike a third when the lively Luongo tapped the ball in following Gladwin's pull-back.

Credit to Swindon they played well.

I do wished they had cut out some of the incidents such as the challenges but it was a lively game for them. We was always on the back foot, which was disappointing because we needed to stand up to them.

swindon impressed me but i just felt notts lacked that courage today, we seemed scared for first time this season and we just did not play like we felt we could get anything.

shame really.

Miserable day at the office.

Lacked any sort of understanding at the back, they did well but we was poor. Very simple really! Good report, shame about the score though.
