LLOYD Isgrove’s name was chanted late into the night on Saturday following another standout performance as Swindon Town defeated League Two newbies Leyton Orient 3-1 at Brisbane Road.

More than 1,300 Town fans fitted the Welsh winger’s name into the chorus of Spandau Ballet’s 80s hit ‘Gold’ throughout Saturday’s one-sided affair.

And the 26-year-old was evidently flattered by his new set of adoring supporters.

Fans’ wishes were answered days before the League Two season kicked off when the pacey winger agreed to a one-year stay at the County Ground under manager Richie Wellens following a string of eye-catching pre-season shows.

And his signature could – arguably – be one of the most significant summer signings in the fourth tier given he currently tops the division’s assists chart with five notched from seven games.

After an initially slow start on Saturday, Isgrove caused Orient’s defence nothing but problems.

His darting cross-field runs and accurate through balls towards waiting striker Jerry Yates and Eoin Doyle made life tough for Ross Embleton’s side.

And the Yeovil-born player was consequently awarded with an assist for Yates’ late first-half strike, while he teed up Rob Hunt for Town’s second goal - which fortuitously deflected off of Joe Widdowson’s back before gliding into the near post top corner.

One thing is certain, Isgrove has been made to feel more than welcome by Swindon’s passionate fanbase – both at home and away.

He said: “My name hasn’t been sung like that before – the fans have been excellent.

“They’ve followed us at home, and they’ve followed us away. To give them the performances to make them sing like that is really good.

“On a personal note, it’s really nice to have them singing my name like they did at the end.

“It’s a team game, we’re all working for each other. Saturday wasn’t about me or any individual, it was a collective performance.

“We all win as a team, and we lose as a team.”

Macclesfield Town visit the County Ground on Saturday, and Isgrove expects teams to sit back and attempt to grind out a point when visiting SN1 this season.

Saturday’s performance in the capital won’t directly change Macclesfield’s style of play at the weekend.

But, for Isgrove, the overall efficiency of Town’s game will certainly act a stark reminder to teams regarding the threats that Wellens’ team possess when moving forward.

He added: “Most of the league know our style of play, it’s a case of them trying to stop us.

“We’re going to prepare well, like we have done for every game this year, and focus on our own performance.

“We’ll be looking to get another three points definitely.”
