Swindon Advertiser:


NOT only did Nicky Maynard win promotion with now defunct Bury last season, he was also one of Richie Wellens’ main transfer targets during the summer.

Comically, Town’s 39-year-old manager found out he had missed his target when browsing through social media.

A rather infamous video that showed Stags’ CEO Carolyn Radford picking up the striker from a foreign airport confirmed he had joined the promotion hopefuls.

While those promotion hopes have been slightly dampened by Mansfield’s inconsistent form, Maynard has again proven himself as a capable player - scoring seven league goals this term.

Keeping Maynard quiet could pave the way to another three points for Swindon.
