4:35PM

73' Alex Pattison finishes off a Harrogate passage of play with a shot from the edge of the box that is well saved by Wollacott as he manages to keep hold of the ball. Swindon then break up the other end and their move ends with Kesler-Hayden pulling his shot wide.


0-1

4:30PM

68' Iandolo's cross is driven across the face of the Harrogate goal. The ball manages to work it's way through a crowd of players but Simpson can't react quick enough and eventually the visitors clear.

HALF-TIME: Swindon Town 0-1 Harrogate Town

3:47PM

45' There will; be 2 minutes of added time.


0-1

3:45PM

43' Payne puts a corner into the box and it is easily cleared. Swindon then try to recycle the ball but just look short of ideas at this point.


0-1

3:43PM

40' The past 10 minutes have been awful from Swindon and this has been the worst first-half I have seen from Ben garner's side this season. Swindon are adamant in playing the ball around defence before then just booting a hopeful ball up to Simpson that continually fails to test the Harrogate defenders. Ben Garner is losing his head down the dugout and Swindon need to wake up for the second-half if they want to get anything out of this.


0-1

3:32PM

30' Swindon get a corner and Payne whips it to the edge of the box where Reed shoots first time but watches on as his effort is blocked.


0-0

3:27PM

25' That goal was just too easy. A ball over the top and Kesler-Hayden is outmuscled before Diamond nutmegs Wollacott. I hate to say it but Swindon have been poor and deserve to be behind.


0-1

3:25PM
Goal

23' GOAL HARROGATE


Jack Diamond breaks through on goal and pokes the ball past the oncoming Wollacott.


0-1

3:24PM

22' It's better play from Swindon as Payne works his way into the box from the left and fizzes a ball across the face of goal that is defended well as Harrogate clear their lines.


0-0

3:23PM

21' Apologies for the lack of updates. The internet seemingly didn't want to work and we were unable to get back online. Don't worry though you didn't miss much.


0-0

3:13PM

11' Luke Armstrong heads just wide after getting a good connection on a cross. Swindon are shaken in this game so far.

6' Risky play from Swindon as Ben Gladwin first gives the ball away in midfield with Jack Diamond breaking on goal. Gladwin gets back and wins the ball back for Swindon but moments later Dion Conroy tries to hold off Diamond inside the Swindon box.

The players are out and we are almost ready to get underway.

2:55PM

So we are nearly ready for the players to make their entrance into a windy, cold County Ground. There will be a minutes applause in honour of Swindon Town legend Frank Burrows following his passing earlier in the week.

2:53PM

Swindon Town gaffer Ben Garner has made a bold decision to leave out Harry McKirdy with the adaptable attacker relegated to the bench in place of Ben Gladwin. Rob Hunt keeps his place in defence but Romoney Crichlow makes the bench after recovering from injury.
