Swindon Town striker Josh Davison gave his thoughts after what proved to be an eventful debut in a 1-1 draw with Colchester United earlier today.

Davison impressed on his Reds bow, holding the ball up well, linking up with Harry McKirdy and he was unlucky not to open his account for the club.

And, speaking to the media in the wake of the game, Davison gave an account of how he thought his Swindon Town debut unfolded.

"We were disappointed not to get the three points. It was great team performance but we just couldn't finish off the job, which was unfortunate," Davison said.

"A corner came in, the big man got across the front and won his header and it was a little bit of a mixup and they scored, which is a shame because they didn't have many chances, I think they had two shots and they've come away with a point so they are probably buzzing.

"We are disappointed not to get three points because that's what matters, but we played well, we kept the ball well, we had all the chances, all the possession and we just didn't finish it off.

"I've been training for a week now, the first session was on Tuesday and I probably should have got myself a goal in the first-half.

'We were just unlucky."


Davison was involved in two of the game's biggest talking points; being taken out by the Goalkeeper at the end and being stamped on by Shamal George in the second-half, who was subsequently booked.

"I didn't know much about it. I got my head on the ball and I felt two fists in my head, the boys thought it was a penalty but I didn't know much about it," Davison added.

"I know I got cleared out but that was the game, we didn't get many decisions and it is what it is.

"We were clean through on goal, they took us out on the edge, then we were through again and they took us out inside the box, but the referee decided to give the free-kick rather than the penalty.

"I slid to go get the ball, me and the Keeper collided, he thought I did it on purpose which I didn't, I was still on the floor and he turned round and stamped on me.

"The lino saw it and sent him off, so it was silly from him."
