The perfect Christmas Storey for Swindon

Swindon Advertiser: Town's players mob Yaser Kasim Town's players mob Yaser Kasim

FORGOTTEN man Miles Storey came off the bench to make sure the County Ground was full of festive cheer with the winner in Swindon Town’s victory over Coventry.

The teenager, who hadn’t managed a minute in Town colours for three months prior to his 70th-minute introduction, clipped a cheeky dink over Coventry keeper Joe Murphy with four minutes left to steal all the points for the Robins, who had to show plenty of character in coming from behind to win.

Leon Clarke, the pantomime villain of the piece, put the visitors ahead before stage-walking along the front of the Arkell’s Stand, lapping up the vitriol of the Swindon crowd, but by the final whistle he was red-faced as Yaser Kasim levelled with a stunning volley prior to Storey’s late effort.

Manager Mark Cooper made three tweaks to his starting line-up following the 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United a week earlier, with Nile Ranger being the most notable change.

The former Newcastle frontman began a match for the first time since November 9 after a series of disciplinary issues, while Nathan Byrne and Ryan Harley replaced Nathan Thompson and Kasim.

Coventry were minus Callum Wilson, as Chris Dagnall filled in up front alongside Leon Clarke, and it was the ex-Town striker who had the Sky Blues’ first shot on target in the seventh minute – but his tame header from Carl Baker’s cross was easily dealt with by Wes Foderingham.

Swindon took a few minutes to get to grips with Coventry’s crisp passing but soon the Robins found space in midfield to work some magic of their own.

In the 12th minute Massimo Luongo let fly from range, forcing a one-handed save out of Joe Murphy, low down to his right, before Franck Moussa tried his luck at the other end without success.

With Luongo, Ryan Mason and Ryan Harley regularly finding acres of space to dictate play in the middle of the park, Town looked increasingly dangerous in attack, and Luongo volleyed with in the 18th minute after bringing down a loose ball in the Coventry box.

The visitors, however, were a major threat going forward in their own right.

Moussa had Foderingham sprawling across his goal in the 19th minute as the midfielder’s shot fizzed past a post, and the Town stopper was on his belly again seven minutes later as Chris Dagnall’s deflected shot bounced narrowly wide.

Carl Baker and Cyrus Christie were causing Swindon all sorts of problems down their left-hand side, and the latter’s excellent cross almost led to the opener in the 33rd minute, only for Leon Clarke to steer his effort wide.

Clarke spurned Coventry’s best chance of the first half moments later, heading wide from six yards out after Grant Hall misjudged the flight of a left-wing cross, as the home fans began to voice their frustrations.

After a bright beginning, Swindon were struggling to string together long and telling periods of possession, and their best opportunity before the half-time whistle sounded came after a bout on pinball on the edge of the Sky Blues’ penalty area.

Even then, Ryan Mason’s volley was comfortable for Murphy to save.

Coventry had Murphy to thank in the early moments of the second half for keeping them level, as the visiting stopper pulled off a superb save, leaping to his right to keep out Ranger’s header, and the importance of the save was made doubly evident a minute later as the City took the lead.

Christie, a thorn in Swindon’s left-hand side throughout, darted in a low cross from the right and Clarke got in front of is marker – not for the first time on the day – to head past Foderingham.

Clarke, whose ill-fated spell at the County Ground in 2011 has evidently scarred him, then launched into a 50-yard celebratory run in front of the Arkell’s Stand, angering home supporters and lapping up their jeers.

The goal stung Town into life. With substitute Jack Barthram’s runs pulling the Coventry defence to pieces, Swindon looked to exploit the resulting space. Cooper switched to a 3-5-2 formation in an effort to force an equaliser but, while Town immediately looked more creative going forwards, at the other end their fragile defence appeared weaker.

Miles Storey was chucked on by Cooper as a last-ditch throw of the dice and the teenager’s neat flick was hacked clear en route to goal by a Coventry defender before Ranger’s header landed in the hands of Murphy.

The visiting keeper was in action again minutes later, reaching to his left to smother Luongo’s drive from range, and watched Pritchard’s drive drift over the Town End before Coventry came within a whisker of doubling their lead.

Baker twisted into space inside the Swindon penalty area and struck a low effort to Foderingham’s near post, where the home keeper pushed the ball onto an upright. The save was crucial.

Within two minutes Town had drawn level. Ranger’s cushioned header teed up Kasim on the edge of the box and the Iraqi produced a quite brilliant first-time volley to leave Murphy rooted to the spot.

Storey galloped through one on one with Murphy in the 78th minute but couldn’t beat Murphy but, after John Fleck hit the Swindon crossbar with a blistering, 35-yard screamer, Storey got a second bite at the cherry. And he made the most of it.

After shrugging off the challenge of Jordan Clarke, Storey showed tremendous pace to burst into the Coventry area and exquisite touch to lift the ball over the onrushing Murphy.

It was a consummate finish, belying the fact Storey hasn’t made an appearance in League One since the trip to Wolves in September.

Town pushed hard for a third, and Kasim’s deflected effort struck the outside of Murphy’s right-hand post, but two goals were enough. Three points for Christmas.

“That’s all we really wanted.

“It was a fantastic game of football, two really good football teams – they’re the best team we’ve played,” said Cooper after the game.

“Their forwards are very, very good, they’ve got good movement and we did well to keep it to one I thought.

“We didn’t start great, the wind was a factor for both teams but they settled better than us and they were better than us in the first half.

We made some radical changes and started the second half okay and then I just decided to open the game up and see if we can win it. Sometimes it works.

“We’ve gone away from home and played open and end up getting beat, so we’ve asked the players for a bit of balance and responsibility.

“I’ve said to them ‘if you can play with a bit of responsibility we’ll take the leash off you and let you go and play’.

“Today they showed that they can have a little bit of balance.

“We had to defend a lot of times and it was end to end, but it was much more enjoyable watching that than last week.

“Their two full-backs were causing us problems so we decided to go to three at the back and go with two wing-backs to look after their full-backs and I thought on the whole nullified that.

“We decided to play five across the middle and it gave us more of an attacking threat going forward.

“We could have scored four or five, I thought. That was tense, that was hard work for the coaching staff. You’re always trying to come up with something to give you that edge and get you back in the game.

“It was a brilliant game and a fantastic result for us.”

My man of the match was Ranger. I thought he was massive for us on Saturday. Very strong player on the ball. He was getting pushed and pulled all over the place but didn't react. I know he's a bad lad but credit where due for his performance and effort on Saturday.

I agree up to a point - he also can be lazy, when he loses the ball he rarely chases it back.

Ranger may not always chase back, he often chases down defenders when we're pressing (would like to see more of this) and on many occasions he's there with a defensive header from opposition set pieces, he's winning me over with his attitude ON the pitch.

I thought Ranger was excellent, he performed well considering lack of games, and his defensive headers on 4 or 5 occasions were superb. Foderingham should also be given great credit for keeping us in the game. And a special credit should go to Leon Clarke, because before he acted so stupidly with his goal celebration there was little fire in the Swindon team or the support - he really got the temperature raised in the County Ground and shot himself and his team in the foot quite magnificently, which in itself should not be overlooked. Does he know Di Canio isn't here any more?

Mr Cooper, last week I asked that you consider three words;
ATTACK;
TRUST;
and BELIEVE......

Congratulations Mr Cooper, you let them off your leash and although forced by circumstances, showed you also have tactical nous with your 3-5-2, grab them by the throat, final quarter.

Nothing but admiration today for the team and the manager.....oh and particularly our home boy (even if he is from the midlands) Miles Storey..
During the Chelsea game we were calling from the Town End for Storey with his pace to play off Ranger and felt it should have been done on that night against a slowing John Terry.. The next day posted the same here.

It may not always have the same result or effect but I'm sure we are all glad you gave Miles the chance to prove his worth in a match situation, especially as he grabbed you and us the winner. Please let this be just the beginning of his and your relationship. I am convinced he will continue to deliver for you and us.
Congratulations also to a sometimes maligned defense who despite conceding were trusted to hold the back with three and came up trumps.

A great way to go into our xmas period.

Well done everyone and a happy xmas and new year to ONE AND ALL.

I thought Ranger made a huge difference by taking a lot of pressure off the midfield and defence. I wonder where we and he will go from here? January might be pivotal in more ways than one.

You have a good point alynsmith but I can understand Leon Clarkes reaction . He was badly let down by the club. Jeremy Wray handled the situation very poorly. The Clarke incident was triggered by the Towns fitness coach abusing Clarke as he came off. He should not have been in the dug out at all. Leon Clarke is probably the best striker in Div 1 and Paul Caddis would have been poss the best defender in Div 1, they were driven away from Swindon by shocking man management from our manager and even worse from our chairman. Because of PDC's god like status virtually all town fans turned against both players.

He didn't abuse Clarke, he merely pointed out that he would be back in doing more running the next day - and Big Leon thought that was too much.

Yes the Caddis situation should have been handled better, but you are carping on about people that are no longer here.

Rather hats off to the current Manager for his excellent work on Saturday in motivating our current players and his tremendous use of substitutions which won us the game.

I still think there are more civilised ways to prove a point and I think that even with Di Canio having that kind of appreciation here at the club, at the time, most realistic ST fans realised that we lost a quality striker when Di Canio got rid of Clarke...... it didn't warrant the posturing Clarke came out with - but as I say, I'm glad he did because it lit a fire under the crowd and the team. I agree with you about Paul Caddis, but if he should ever score against Swindon in the future I am sure his reaction would be much different from Clarke's on Saturday.

Great Goal Miles Storey the defender looked like he had upper hand as he had the ball at his feet with Miles behind him and Miles did fantastically well to nip round the other side of him and take the ball and a great lift over the keeper.
For the last 20 minutes it was great stuff i wish we would take the game to teams more often like that especially at home as we look a good team when we play at pace as we have plenty of options when attacking and our players are good with the ball. It does leave us vulnerable at the back though but lets face it we have been vulnerable at the back all season.
Like MC said it went for us this time other times it may back fire but i would rather lose a game going for it rather than playing defensively because as a team we are not good enough to defend. We are a better team attacking and playing at a high tempo as lets face it if were attacking them they cant attack our back four. Nile Ranger makes such a difference to our team and again on saturday it showed how different we are with him playing.
Kasim was superb when he came on as was Miles and a great job Town as Coventry are a good side.All teams in this league are vulnerable if we attack like we did saturday and Coventry i thought looked tired in the last 20 minutes because we upped the pace of the game.
If Coventry hadnt had their point deduction they would be in the top four so this was a very good result.
Next test a tough game with Brentford who are the inform team if we play to our beliefs and as we did saturday we have every chance. If we go with a defensive mind to stifle them i cant see us getting anything.
Lets go for it boxing day they did at Preston and no reason why we cant do to them what they did to Preston.
Everyone have a Good Christmas and heres to 3 points at Brentford.

You have a good point alynsmith but I can understand Leon Clarkes reaction . He was badly let down by the club. Jeremy Wray handled the situation very poorly. The Clarke incident was triggered by the Towns fitness coach abusing Clarke as he came off. He should not have been in the dug out at all. Leon Clarke is probably the best striker in Div 1 and Paul Caddis would have been poss the best defender in Div 1, they were driven away from Swindon by shocking man management from our manager and even worse from our chairman. Because of PDC's god like status virtually all town fans turned against both players.
I still think there are more civilised ways to prove a point and I think that even with Di Canio having that kind of appreciation here at the club, at the time, most realistic ST fans realised that we lost a quality striker when Di Canio got rid of Clarke...... it didn't warrant the posturing Clarke came out with - but as I say, I'm glad he did because it lit a fire under the crowd and the team. I agree with you about Paul Caddis, but if he should ever score against Swindon in the future I am sure his reaction would be much different from Clarke's on Saturday.
Why slat Clark for celebrating his goal..
The way he was treated by manager and the board was disgusting..

If a person tried grabbing me from the back of the neck the first thing I or most people would do is by giving him a slap

Mate that's a great post.
Clarke really wasn't very bright, should've waited til the end Leon! If he gets similarly (prematurely) over-excited between the sheets I should think his missus is getting her satisfaction elsewhere while he's out on the pitch.
Having said that, if the Judge removes Ranger from society next month I'd be more than happy if Town were to somehow persuade Clarke to rejoin us as his replacement. Long shot I know - but this is football, remember....stranger things have happened.

Yes grim, Cooper seems to have got a bit carried away there. I thought Orient also were better than Coventry. We need to keep Saturday in perspective though. We could have been dead and buried by half time. I'm not saying we didn't deserve the win; it was a great fightback. But we were chasing shadows for much of the game. Two big tests coming up. Cooper's references to "responsibility" are illuminating. He's obviously concerned, as some of us fans are, that the team has lacked character this season, particularly away from home. Saturday was all about momentum. Coventry had their tails up until we got a goal and then the tide turned. The big question is can our players reproduce for 90 minutes their performance in that last 20 minutes on Saturday?

At least we seen 20 mins not like that rubbish at Sheffield lol.
Glad you thought ranger played well also.coventry are such a good attacking team they let themselves down in defence, saying that we played like they did at wolves and I would rather see us playing like that away even if we do get beat, saying that we gets beat now playing the dreaded 4-6-0.
I'm sure brentford will expect us to play negative so it's now up to cooper to go out all attack and surprise them. Also storey ows them one.

Time for sweet revenge for Town on Boxing Day - and what about Miles Storey grabbing the winner especially after the play off game.

Also their centre back who gave us stick after the game - a three points Town.

oan for all their hard work and trying were just sh1t at finishing and wasted countless sitters which cost us an auto spot at the expense of Donny or Muff!!!!!!!!

I agree Walsall looked better than Coventry but we were awful that night and couldn't string two passes together. We did also start to play when it was too late and I felt to an extent we made them look better than they were. We scored one and possibly should have had two more in the last 10 minutes.

Against Orient I felt we were the better side until Nathan's mistake let them immediately back into the game. That goal gave them confidence and took ours away.

Coventry do look good going forward and yes we were chasing shadows at times but I felt we created some decent openings ourselves, the save from Ranger before they scored was excellent and Hall I think had an excellent chance in the first half.

I don't think anyone could question the player's commitment on Saturday. Well done to them.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all Posters from a wet and windy Oxfordshire.

Grim, I've never doubted Ranger's ability. With the squad as it is now I reckon a fit and interested Ranger could make a difference of at least 6 places in the table over a season. I'm not going to post again on the other stuff surrounding him until there's something new to talk about.
