MONDAY BRIEFING: 15.04.2019

15 April 2019

Here’s a summary of the week’s events and a look ahead to the next seven days:

Bank Holiday Weekend

Town are in action twice as the Easter bank holiday comes around – the Robins are in action away Cambridge as they look to continue their unbeaten run to seven games. On Easter Monday, Crewe visit the County Ground in a similar position to the Robins, sitting just below the play-off places.

Doughty still penalty-perfect

Town’s top scorer Michael Doughty returned to the starting line-up in a deeper role than often seen this season but still managed to notch his 12th goal of the season for the Robins.

After clipping a delightful pass over the Oldham back four for Theo Robinson, who was impeded by George Edmundson, Doughty stepped up to score his seventh penalty of the campaign and maintained his 100% record from the spot.

Bennett in brilliant form

Kyle Bennett, on-loan from Bristol Rovers, continued his fine form on Saturday while notching another goal from midfield – his fourth since joining in January.

The attacking midfielder calmly finished past Daniel Iversen in the Latics’ goal to put Town ahead on the hour mark.

Loan Watch

Jermaine McGlashan popped up with the winner for Wrexham five minutes from time as they beat Barnet 2-1 at the Hive.

McGlashan’s goal keeps Wrexham in reach of the top two play-off sides who receive a by into the semi-finals of the National League play-offs.

Sol Pryce came off the bench for Bath City in their 3-0 loss at St. Albans City – Joe Romanski was an unused substitute.

Jordan Young started for Highworth Town in their defeat at the weekend with Scott Twine an unused sub for Waterford in their game.

Academy Report

Swindon’s Under-18s succumbed to a 4-1 defeat against AFC Bouremouth as they continued their Merit League title challenge.
