The first penalty I doubt he saw it, he was probably watching the cross coming in, maybe the AR could have helped him out. Second one, again I doubt he saw the left arm of Collins go into the back of the player. Having seen the replays of both incidents they were penalties, but when I was watching the game live I didn't think either were. Such is the life of a referee where he gets one crack and we all get several slow motion replays from the perfect angle!

not a lot of goalmouth action, but interesting nonetheless.

Chris Hussey dangerous with set pieces and crosses for Swindon. Was always impressed with him against us previously, for Burton.

Swindon look the much more likely winners to me.

Forest Green look poor.

Collins also seems to be showing why he ended up playing as a holding midfielder for us.
Liability at centre half.

Forest Green were feeble. Pathetic going forward and dreadful defensively. Lee Collins had a very poor game. Alex Iacovitti wasn't too bad, out of position at right back as substitute.

Bob Hunt the FGR commentator said to me last week when I saw him at the cricket that Forest Green won't go down. I'm not sure I agree with him. Having said that, I haven't seen Port Vale or Chesterfield yet.

Swindon looked quite good. Solid at the back, and good going forward. You can see why they've won 4 away games. They will be up there.

They're certainly looking that way, but what Forest Green have that a lot of the poor clubs battling relegation don't, is Dale Vince.

I predicted them to struggle, but always said I can't see them going down because they'll spend big where necessary to ensure they don't go back to the Vanarama. Vince has spent enough to get them where they are, I highly doubt he'll want to have to start again.

It's one less club to finish below the Spireites if he does....every cloud and all that.

Didn't think Swindon were that good, a bit lucky to come up against a very poor FGR side.
We might win against Accrington next time.

No he's not. He's scored as many as any of our players in a terrible team.
