WITH 2015 coming to an end in a few weeks, it’s time to take a look back at the key moments from the year - the good, the bad and the ugly.

In typical Swindon fashion it’s not been a straightforward year, as we’ve watched the club earn the chance to move up to the second tier of English football and witnessed a 12-game winless run resulting in a change of manager.

We’ll take a look back by listing the six most important games and how they defined 2015.

January 12 - Coventry 0 Swindon Town 3

JUST a couple of weeks into the new year and in front of the television cameras Swindon put on their most complete and confident performance under Mark Cooper. The result lifted Town to the top of League One and showed what this side was truly capable of on their day.

April 4 - Swindon Town 0 Milton Keynes 3

A MUST-WIN game for both sides if they wanted a chance to earn a top two spot in the division, Town bottled it on the big stage. Their opponents wanted it more on the day and the Town faithful knew another play-off campaign beckoned.

May 11 - Swindon Town 5 Sheffield Utd 5

THE most incredible game in the history of the Football League play-offs, the football equivalent of watching two heavyweight boxers throwing punches at each other without bothering to defend themselves. The result saw Town reach the play-off final.

May 24 - Preston 4 Swindon Town 0

ONE of the most embarrassing moments I’ve ever endured watching Swindon was witnessing their first-half display at Wembley. The result marked the end of a talented squad built by Mark Cooper and Lee Power.

September 12 - Barnsley 4 Swindon Town 1

A REAL cesspit of a game, the home side were dreadful and sadly, Town were even worse. The defeat kicked off Town’s winless run, which would lead to the dismissal of manager Mark Cooper after a terrible away showing at Millwall.

November 28 - Chesterfield 0 Swindon Town 4

AFTER another humiliating away defeat a week previous at Fleetwood, Town produced their best performance of the season.
