Two Points Dropped

30 January 2013

AFTER another fully committed display at Leyton Orient on Tuesday, Nathan Thompson believes that Town missed an opportunity to pick up three points away from home.

On a blustery and rainy night at the Matchroom Stadium, clear-cut chances were at a premium for both sides but the visitors managed to carve out opportunities for the likes of James Collins and Andy Williams which neither could take.

The point nudges Swindon up to third in the League One table but the full-back says that the side should have taken advantage of their dominant first-half performance.

“On reflection it’s a bad result,” he told the official website after the game. “We’re a little bit disappointed with the way we played second half. The boys created so many chances and it’s just disappointing we’ve not managed to put them away.

“It’s another clean sheet but we created so many chances that, coming away and reflecting on it, it’s disappointing. We feel it’s two points dropped rather than one point gained.

“Leyton Orient is a place where you come and, looking at our next three away games, this was one of those places where we felt we could come and win and pick up three points. 

“To play as well as we did first half and to fade second half was disappointing but we’ll pick ourselves up from tonight and go again on Saturday against Crawley.”
