Looks like the plan is to dominate possession and hope that Smith and Murphy can do something in the attacking third. Hope the confidence is there amongst the players as it has been clearly lacking in the last two games. You never know!

Time for Cooper to give them a hair drier blast or kick a boot or two, around the dressing room. Sounds like after a bright start, they've gone back into hibernation, Cooper needs to show he can motivate these guys and get them playing how they started and add a little bit extra in the final third and get a goal or two.

I just hope he has not gone defensive and sits back for a 0-0 which is no good for either team. The away supporters that have once again turned out in force and deserve better. Come on Cooper show us you can actually change the outcome of this game and show something positive that we are there to get 3 point and not afraid of a team 5th from bottom.

P.S Rare occasion that Brizzie fan would like us to win

Proves my point, go for it and now don't sit back defending a one goal lead, I was really impressed with Harley against Crawley, for one reason or another he hasn't quite produced the goods this season and taken a bit of abuse from some, partly because of injuries and maybe he hasn't been given enough opportunities to play in his best position. Having conceded a penalty zero to hero keep it going my boy and do a Mason on them.

In the end Swindon Town found themselves hanging on for a draw from a game they bossed for 70 minutes.

Looking forward to hearing comments from the fans that were there, but it sounds like we went back into our shell and invited them to pummel us and hope we could keep them out. When will Cooper learn the best form of defence is attack. Also looking foe=rward to hear what he has to say in his press conference as to why once again we let a 1-0 lead slip away.

Shame we can't close games out to hold onto wins... Whenever we are winning with 20 minutes to go I never feel confident that we will hold on to the win. It was the same under Danny Wilson. I think this is the most important aspect that we need to develop next year - the mental (and physical?) strength to hold onto the lead in the closing stages...

No problem. Apparently Troy had a solid game again today but after hearing thats he on a similiar routine to Ledly King at the moment you do question if hes on borrowed time especially with his contract up this summer. Not sure if power will be keen to keep an all ready high earner who is injury prone.

On the attacking side of things we really do miss Nile. Different class in this league. If all goes well with the trial i can imagine him being unstoppable for us with all the baggage left behind him. We'll see what happens...

I agree,if Troy is going to be a King then Power will really have to **** his contract.maybe offer a lower wage or pay as play (or available).

Well we should have been out of sight by half time totally dominant but not one shot on target. Strange game they took a pen that was like Luongo and Reis in the JPT. Came out all guns firing 2nd half with Luongo bossing the game MOM by a mile. Great strike by Harley and an even better one by them. Good showings today by Byrne, Kasim - couple of great cross field passes, TAH & Wardy solid at the back. Lucky not to go 2-1 down when they hit the bar. Our problem in not closing out games is largely because without Ranger we have a powder puff attack - smith hasn't got it & Murphy's not interested. They came back at us in the last 20 mins so a draw was probably a fair result.

Thanks for the report Jock, have a safe trip back as a few of us have said Ranger is a huge miss and there's no way we can replace him(unless Power got ~£2m to blow) QPR got a massive problem losing Charlie and it looks like it'll cost them auto promo? we had Wilma&Joan and they missed so many chances it cost us auto promo! so I would say Power needs to find a goal-scorer for next season or it will be a long hard struggle !!!!!!!!

Spot on Jock, I would go along with all of that. Best match I've seen Llongue play and the goal (in fact both goals to be fair) was awesome.

Smith showed a lot of willing but very little awareness. My biggest frustration in the first half was good build up and wing play leading to always cutting in field rather than getting to the by line. We did do that more at the beginning of the second half and looked far more dangerous.

Not another Port Vale unfortunately but an enjoyable afternoon's football and Town played well. Also delighted as this is the first match this season that my daughter has seen where we haven't lost!

So in a nutshell Malc, the same as many have said for most of the season so far, we're pretty toothless up front as goes finishing, and still can't close out games.
On the plus side good to hear that Ward and TAH have some sort of partnership maybe, but we are still giving away silly penalties.

Mid table or just above seems realistic then but we must sharpen up because the clubs are packed over a short span of points.

Decent result today in view of all the injuries. Any team that loses players like Ranger, Pritchard, Foderingham, McEverley etc etc would struggle. Yes may be we had all the play but goals win games and we have no strikers scoring since the loss of Ranger and even Ajose can be counted in that equation and whats left is either not good enough or too young. Lets hope we can nick Ajose at the end of the season and its looking like we will need another replacement for Ranger as the trial case is looking bad for him and can only see one outcome.

Well we should have been out of sight by half time totally dominant but not one shot on target. Strange game they took a pen that was like Luongo and Reis in the JPT. Came out all guns firing 2nd half with Luongo bossing the game MOM by a mile. Great strike by Harley and an even better one by them. Good showings today by Byrne, Kasim - couple of great cross field passes, TAH & Wardy solid at the back. Lucky not to go 2-1 down when they hit the bar. Our problem in not closing out games is largely because without Ranger we have a powder puff attack - smith hasn't got it & Murphy's not interested. They came back at us in the last 20 mins so a draw was probably a fair result.
Spot on Jock, I would go along with all of that. Best match I've seen Llongue play and the goal (in fact both goals to be fair) was awesome.

Smith showed a lot of willing but very little awareness. My biggest frustration in the first half was good build up and wing play leading to always cutting in field rather than getting to the by line. We did do that more at the beginning of the second half and looked far more dangerous.

Not another Port Vale unfortunately but an enjoyable afternoon's football and Town played well. Also delighted as this is the first match this season that my daughter has seen where we haven't lost!

Totally agree with you about Smith, can't fault his work rate but his first touch often lets him down, and yep we continually tried cutting in instead of getting around the back and whipping the ball in. Smith at times was out wide and that meant there wasn't a height presence in the box when the ball did come in. But as you say a good performance and far better than against Crawley.

As the games and points are slipping away and there are some tough ones to come with an under strength side we surely have to accept that the playoffs are out of reach and securing L1 status (regardless we are currently 7th) must be the aim IMO.

Having had the boo boys on his back on Tue's you would have thought cooper would be full of praise for Belford . I have seen the goal and there is no way he was saving that. Remember that he is also young and learning his trade and has played far less than most of the others . A point at Crewe is not that bad as we have had better Swindon teams go there and come back with nothing. We need some big wins now to stay around the 8 spot against some good teams I .think we will finish in 14th place.

Look at the bottom clubs they have not even acheived 1 point per game for three quarters of the season.... do you really think they are all suddenly going to turn into world beaters and sweep everyone before them and win game after game after game....

I would agree play offs are unlikely, unless Peterborough or another club fall off the cliff and hardly win a game over the rest of the season....having seen what they have done over the same three quarters of a season, think it is highly , highly unlikely... but we can but hope.

Decent result today in view of all the injuries. Any team that loses players like Ranger, Pritchard, Foderingham, McEverley etc etc would struggle. Yes may be we had all the play but goals win games and we have no strikers scoring since the loss of Ranger and even Ajose can be counted in that equation and whats left is either not good enough or too young. Lets hope we can nick Ajose at the end of the season and its looking like we will need another replacement for Ranger as the trial case is looking bad for him and can only see one outcome.

Really?
.
I've been following the case and I would be shocked if he is found guilty!
.
To be guilty it has to beyond reasonable doubt - which there clearly is more than some
.
CCTV and photo evidence of her willingly leaving the club and following him into the hotel room. After spending the night together blowing shisha rings in each other mouths etc - gives impression she was in to him
.
But the real clincher is she had a full on text conversation the morning after joking about his dance moves and apologising for HER behaviour - doesn't sound like a rape victim to me!
.
Plus she told all her friends she has a one night stand before changing it to being raped!
.
All the other stuff just makes him a kn0b - which he is not on trial for

.Sheffield still have all the top 7 teams in the league to play yet ...to win all of those would take a MASSIVE effort on their part especially on top of the cup exploits..next season they may be "dangerous"...but then again they were supposed to be this year too and one of the favourites for promotion and are one the real under achievers alongside the Ashton gate mob ...

If we finish 8th realistically that will be a good season and recognised as such, although though some will find something to snipe about every week / day and still be oblivious to reality.

Smith at times was out wide and that meant there wasn't a height presence in the box when the ball did come in. But as you say a good performance and far better than against Crawley.

As the games and points are slipping away and there are some tough ones to come with an under strength side we surely have to accept that the playoffs are out of reach and securing L1 status (regardless we are currently 7th) must be the aim IMO.
Are you really really really concerned about us securing our L1 status....gloom where no gloom really exists...

Look at the bottom clubs they have not even acheived 1 point per game for three quarters of the season.... do you really think they are all suddenly going to turn into world beaters and sweep everyone before them and win game after game after game....

I would agree play offs are unlikely, unless Peterborough or another club fall off the cliff and hardly win a game over the rest of the season....having seen what they have done over the same three quarters of a season, think it is highly , highly unlikely... but we can but hope.
Have you seen Sheffield 2nd bottom 4 wins 12th with 2 games in hand.
No we won't go down we have a more chance being sucked in rather than getting in top six with not one forward in our team.
We need to be cautious
Nigel is a good manager, maybe not quite up to his dad's level, never the less he's done a good job turning it round at Utd.

Spot on Old town you only have to look at the clubs he left and see he left them in good shape. I met he once when he was watching Charlie Austin outside the CG he seemed a good laugh .

Score: 1
