PREVIEW: NOTTS COUNTY

25 October 2018

Swindon head into Saturday’s game with Notts County on a poor run of form in October.

It’s been a winless month, bar a victory in Checkatrade Trophy against Plymouth, and Town have struggled for goals but will be looking to change their fortunes against the Magpies.

Swindon lost 2-0 at home to Cambridge United in the week after going two goals down in the first 12 minutes.

The Oppo

Notts County started the season dismally – not picking up a single win in August and manager, Kevin Nolan, was sacked following defeat to Lincoln City at Sincil Bank.

Since then, under the stewardship of Harry Kewell, results have picked up – they strung together three wins on the bounce against Crewe, Crawley and Macclesfield before losing 4-0 to Bury and then Mk Dons; both away from home.

Those results have kept them in the bottom three on 12 points only above Cheltenham and Macclesfield Town.

Head-to-head

Town have good recent record against their hosts on Saturday – they’ve won four out of the last six games between the two.

Last time out, a Luke Norris goal was enough to see off the Magpies at the County Ground; however, the last time Town won at Meadow Lane was back in December 2014. That day, Mark Cooper’s men ran out 3-0 winners thanks to an Andy Williams brace and Massimo Luongo’s finish.

The Gaffer

This is the second time Town will face a Harry Kewell team this season – Phil Brown’s team drew with Kewell’s Crawley at Broadfield Stadium back in August.

As a player, Kewell spent an illustrious early career with Leeds, where he spent two years as a youth-teamer, before going on to make 181 appearances for the West Yorkshire club.

He scored 45 goals while at Elland Road, before moving to Liverpool, the team he supported as a boy, where he spent five years – the most notable of his achievements while on Merseyside came in the famous 2005 Champions League Final. Kewell became the first Australian-born player to win the trophy after Liverpool came from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties.

In the 2007 Final – Kewell appeared as a second-half substitute as Liverpool fell to Milan 2-1 in Athens. After that, Kewell spent time at Galatasaray, Melbourne Victory, Al-Gharafa and Melbourne Hart, retiring in 2014.

Kewell took steps in management and was at Watford’s academy, where he spent two years before taking over at Crawley Town in 2017.

REPORT: NOTTS COUNTY 1-2 SWINDON TOWN

27 October 2018

Town had to come from behind to beat Notts County at Meadow Lane on a cold day in Nottingham.

A super solo goal from Steven Alzate and an own goal off of a Matt Taylor cross sealed a 2-1 victory after Kane Hemmins had put the Magpies in the lead.

 The victory ends Swindon’s five-game winless run as Phil Brown made five changes to the side that lost to Cambridge United in the week.

First Half

Notts County made the brighter start calling Lawrence Vigouroux into action early on with the Chilean having to stop Hemmings and Enzio Boldewijn with stinging efforts.

Town’s first chance fell to Marc Richards – James Dunne floated a lovely ball in from deep and the striker opted for the volley but couldn’t find the target.

County striker, Jon Stead was up next to test Vigouroux, in an end-to-end tie – his 20-yard strike was pushed wide by Swindon’s no.1.

Town then had the best chance of the half – Doughty’s low cross fell to Martin Smith but his effort was blocked brilliantly by Elliott Hewitt for the home side.

A minute later and Smith was almost on the scoresheet again – Doughty, with the corner, and Smith lost his man but couldn’t turn his near-post header towards goal.

That spell was cut short cruelly short as Hemmings got in-between defence and goalkeeper and poked home the opener.

A fractious five minutes followed with Sid Nelson receiving a booking for pushing County’s Hewitt.

Second Half

Hemmings had a chance to double the hosts’ lead only a minute into the second half – he struck an effort over Vigouroux’s crossbar.

Town were growing into the game, however, and the introduction of Steven Alzate and Elijah Adebayo made a big difference. And on 64 minutes Alzate levelled the game – a winding run resulted in him on the edge of the box with options both sides but his choice of shot was the right one as he rolled the ball past Fitzsimons in the County goal.

From then, Town took the ascendency – and on 80 minutes the winner came. Matt Taylor was found by Adebayo’s backheel and his cross was shinned into the roof of the net by Jamie Turley.

From then, Swindon limited the home side to half chances and looked more likely to score on the break and their defensive solidity saw them through the game.
