    With Wes playing we've got a chance. Sorry for Belford, but with no decent defence in front of him, he was always on a hiding. Maybe today, we can use the local derby spirit to get a much needed win....

    However up top still looks very worrying, Cooper or whoever is in charge for next season needs to have a couple of forwards lined up! Shame we missed out on Matty Tubbs, would have been perfect replacement for Ranger. Plus Pritchard will be a miss for the next 3 matches, I think he needs to grow up from what the description on here! Get a grip lad, you're a professional footballer not a little boy. You can't make it to the top if you don't control your temper!

    On the plus side sounds like TAH and Stevens were a good pair today! Keep these two and I think we might have a solid defence for the rest if the season!

    Well 2nd half was the best defensive display since Davy Crockett was at the Alamo. SIR WES!! Should be given the freedom of Wiltshire.
    He made at least five point blank saves to keep us in it.
    Pritchard was a complete idiot for retaliating after being given the free kick. Always going to be a straight red and he now misses 3 games. If Cooper had the balls to fine players for dissent it might make players think twice. Heroic defending all round. Stephens looks a find and so much more mobile than Wardy.
    Still lightweight up front and Smith was once again deployed out wide to precious little effect. He tries hard but his first touch lets him down.

    The best thing was that everybody gave 110% to the cause today.

    "If it wasn't for Wes Foderingham..."

    Foderingham's part of the team, isn't he? Or do goalkeepers' performances not count? Nobody ever said "if it wasn't for Austin we wouldn't have won at Southampton" or "if it wasn't for Rogers, we wouldn't have won the League Cup". A striker's job is to score goals. A keeper's job is to stop them.i

    I tend to think you're right about us going nowhere. Cooper might take us somewhere if he gets the chance to build a strong squad and not have the playing style dictated to him. But if you say otherwise you must be right.

    maybe you would like to address your comment to our strikers then .the point i was making was foderingham did his job well but he was subject to countless attacks so were our defenders doing their job were our midfielders doing theirs

    And my point is that Cooper hasn't had the chance to show whether he's a good manager or a bad one. My summing up would be that he's done reasonably well so far in all the circumstances. My opinion is no more valid than yours or anyone else's but surely we all believe in what we're saying, otherwise we wouldn't be debating would we?

    sometimes you have to tell it how it is we are going nowhere under this management

    We could be if he gets the money to build a team or squad himself.

    Lets face it how much progress have we actually made in 125 years? Middle of division 3? Which is exactly where we should be and deserve to be.

    We are unlikely to be going anywhere under any manager as we don't have enough money or big enough support. I am happy we are not facing relegation.

    But that shouldn't take away from the performance today and in response to Nomis, drawing away with ten men against a team on form when we are not is an achievement, despite his bitter reluctance to admit it. And I don't see anyone now claiming we are promotion candidates so he/ she is being a bit of a nob.

    To be fair Den, this was my first away game this season and done more out of duty than desire, as I had promised my six year old son I'd take him to his first away game. Glad I went though, as town fans came in numbers and we really battled today. Good to see and hopefully bodes well for the rest of the season.

    Great effort from the team today and I would have been happy with a draw given the form of the two teams.

    Our defensive game was outstanding and Troy and Stephens put on the best central defensive performance of the season. Stephens must now be first choice for the rest of the season, presumably with Ward alternating every other game with Troy? Wes outstanding but you expect that.

    The Thompsons will hopefully be part of this team for years to come. Very impressed with captain Nathan today and Louis has made great progress this season.

    Pritchard, well had a moment of madness and has apologised, thought he'd overcome the silly bookings but now has 10 or 11 bookings and a red without making a tackle.

    Going forward a concern although we did create some chances, the wonder save from Fielding from Smith was one of the best I've seen. Some good shooting opportunities fell for Luongo and Kasim but they passed instead of shooting which was a bit baffling, maybe not on their preferred foot but have to have a go surely.

    Wouldn't be surprised to hear Wardy call time at the end of the season but will he stay in a coaching capacity? Would be good to see him stay in that capacity imo.

    Ref Kettle had a reasonable game I thought, surprised by the early booking in a derby and seemed to fall for a few of the City players going to ground a bit easy, but he got the key decisions right which is all you can ask for. Pritchard's red was his easiest decision of the game.

    Also good to see Storey recalled, Barker has put in two better showings in last two games but Storey I think has a bit more to offer and may link well with Smith.

    Credit to Cooper today, he produced a motivated team, got the subs right, and deserves some praise. Nathan to remain as captain please....

    Great point today and showed that we can dig in and obviously the defense strengthening helped with Stephens slotting in well it seems. Makes one wonder what if ? had they signed this guy sooner. I dread to think how many games Ward and Hall have cost us this season with stupid errors. Troy is not fully fit as it seems some of the other players playing with knocks so it just shows how we are down to the bare bones. Great to see Miles back especially with Pritchard out for three games. A next season long loan would be great for Stephens and would love to see Nile Ranger leading the team next season but it would be great if we could tighten the defense and a few decent additions we could do quite well. Well done Town and the 2000+ fans that made a difference.

    UPDATE: Half-time, Bristol City 0 Swindon Town 0. Cracking atmosphere as the game began and City just shading possession but honours even so far.

    UPDATE: Large group of Swindon fans marched to away turnstiles by police after almost all home support were safely inside the stadium.

    UPDATE: Police paying special attention to the away turnstiles as teams come out to kick off. Group of home fans - most of them teenagers - are kept away by stewards and mounted officers.

    UPDATE: Signs warning fans that if they bring flares or fireworks into the stadium area they will be arrested are everywhere. Fans caught with either can't say they weren't warned.

    UPDATE: Should be a cracking atmosphere for this local derby. As kick off approaches big queues at the turnstiles.

    The Royal Navy are recruiting at the back of the Williams Stand. Can City sail to another three points this afternoon?

    UPDATE: Could be one of the biggest crowds of the season at Ashton Gate. Park and pubs close to the ground packed.

    A 17-YEAR-OLD youth was arrested as police monitored the arrival of Swindon Town fans for the club's game with Bristol City.

    A contingent of officers in two police cars, three vans and one dog section van was tasked to Bristol Temple Meads for the fans' arrival.

    Insp Shawn Taylor confirmed a youth was arrested for being in possession of a flare.

    He said most of an estimated 400 Swindon fans arrived at the station on the 10.15am train and made their way on foot to Ashton Gate.

    No trouble was reported.

    With the city bathed in glorious sunshine, it's a great day for a cider in the sun and plenty of home fans enjoyed a few bevvies in the bars opposite Greville Smyth Park.

    The only cloud over the day is the continued presence of relegation fears for City, although recent form - particularly away from home - has been good.

    At 2pm the police presence at Ashton Gate was pretty light compared to elsewhere in city centre. A large group of Swindon fans was earlier marched over the Gaol Ferry Bridge.
