SWINDON TOWN: Di Canio hails Town's travelling fans

PAOLO Di Canio lavished praise on the traveling Swindon Town fans at Bournemouth and urged them to stick with him and his players as the season runs its course.

Almost 1,400 Town supporters packed out the visiting section of Dean Court, and were treated to a moment of unbridled passion when Andy Williams slotted home a late equaliser to earn the Robins a point.

After the match, Di Canio was quick to thank the Swindon fans for their backing over the course of the 90 minutes.

“There was a lot of enthusiasm because it was the first away game for a few weeks after the Christmas period, so we have to thank them once again,” he said.

“Their support was amazing – compact, united, 1,400 of them and full of expectation, passion and desire. I hope they have the chance to keep going and following us because they can have a lot of satisfaction again.

“We know that there is a situation that can’t help stretch something, but together as a unit we can light the fire which is already on and hope that we can stay close there and go to the next game altogether with enough adrenaline to keep the position and see what is going on in the future.”

Our away support negates any home advantage when it is in full voice - especially given the confidence of our team on their travels.

Can't make Tranmere now, was hoping to head up and see a few old friends who support them but L.Orient and Colchester are looking possibles now.

I always love the way that Paolo comes over and shows the away fans his appreciation and also makes sure the players do. I always hate it when you watch a game on television especially in the premier league when the manager and players cant get down the tunnel quick enough. This was shown by the way such a big thing was made of the Manchester City players going right over to their fans at arsenal yesterday because of the money they had paid.

All in all given the weather it was a top day, a result I would've taken before kick off, the game got finished even though there was a chance of it getting called off at half time, and the locals were (I found at least) fantastic and had a good chat with several after the match. Paolo's appreciation at the end was great to see as always again.
