10 February 2019

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

Looking to go back-to-back

Swindon face Forest Green on Tuesday night looking for back-to-back wins for the first time since November.

Last time, the Robins went two wins on the bounce was three months ago when Sol Pryce bagged a brace against Stevenage at the County Ground.

After an exhilarating 3-2 win over MK Dons at the weekend Town also go in search of their first home win of 2019 against Rovers who have already claimed victory at SN1 this season in the League Cup.

Full debuts for January signings

Danny Rose and Theo Robinson made their full debuts for Swindon in the 3-2 win against MK Dons at the weekend.

Robinson started up front and impressed with his tireless running and hold-up play despite not getting on the scoresheet. Rose sat in-front of the back four and was characteristically cool as he went about his business breaking up play and passing the ball well.

Dons Duck Broken

Before Saturday’s win, Town had not won against MK Dons in six years, hadn’t won away at Stadium MK in nine years, and hadn’t won there in the league for ten.

Thanks to Michael Doughty’s brace and Keshi Anderson’s screamer, the long wait for victory over and at MK Dons was ended.

County Ground to pay tribute to Danny Williams

A minute’s silence will be held ahead of kick-off in Tuesday’s game against Forest Green to remember Town’s legendary manager, Danny Williams.

Williams passed away last week at the age of 94 with tributes already pouring in over social media.

Williams was manager of the football club when Town famously won the League Cup in 1969 and supporters are able to pen their personal tributes in a book of condolence situated in the club shop throughout the week and in the build-up to kick-off on Tuesday.

Henry shines for Supermarine on loan return

Will Henry was in fine form in his comeback for Swindon Supermarine as he helped them to a 1-1 draw against Poole Town.

Henry returned to the Webbswood Stadium on a short-term loan after spending the predominance of the first half of the season with the Marine.

Joe Romanski tasted defeat for the first time with Bath City as they were beaten heavily in National League South by Dartford. The Romans lost 3-0 on the road to the Darts who now sit two points behind them in the play-off push.

Sol Pryce was an unused substitute in Dulwich Hamlet’s 2-1 win over Welling United.

Jordan Edwards’ loan club, Marlow FC, had their second called-off game in two weeks with Chris Robertson suspended for Havant & Waterlooville as they travelled to Gateshead.
