9:26PM

80' Despite taking the lead again Swindon look very shaky when playing the ball around their own box. Hartlepool sense nervousness amongst the ranks and I wouldn't be surprised should they get a goal soon. Town need to be careful here.

HALF-TIME: Swindon Town 0-0 Hartlepool United

8:32PM

45' There will be one minute of added time.


0-0

8:30PM

42' Molyneaux shoots with a curling effort from the edge of the Swindon bix that forces a diving save from Wollacott. Swindon then look to break on the counter-attack but Simpson's long-ball for Payne has too much on it and Hartlepool clear.


0-0

8:28PM

41' Hunt tries to pass back to Wollacott but fails to get a good contact on the ball and Wollacott is forced to rush off his line and boot the ball out for a throw-in inside the Swindon half. Wollacott then gives Hunt a deserved stare of discontent. Risky play.


0-0

8:27PM

40' Reed shoots from the edge of the box as a corner lands at his feet but his well-struck effort fails to find its way through a host of bodies.


0-0

8:26PM

39' Chance for Swindon as Kaine Kesler-Hayden breaks down the right before shooting just inside the Hartlepool box as his effort is blocked.


0-0

8:21PM

35' Williams picks the ball up 30 yards out and is urged to shoot. He obliges but his shot is wide and a poor attempt.


0-0

8:18PM

32' Swindon break down the left-wing as Iandolo's cut back is met by Payne at the edge of the box. His first-time shot is hit well but Hartlepool defenders are well-positioned and block well.


0-0

8:17PM

31' Play is now back underway but Hartlepool can't be happy.


0-0

8:16PM

28' UTTER CONFUSION

Mark Cullen has the goal in the back of the net as Hartlepool seem to take the lead. He runs off to celebrate but after what felt like an age the linesman puts his flag up and the goal is given offside.


0-0

8:12PM

25' McKirdy gets onto a through ball from Conroy and wins a corner. Reed takes but his delivery is poor and the visitors clear at the near-post.


0-0

8:11PM

24' Swindon do well down the left as Iandolo is found deep inside the Hartlepool half. His cross is poor however and straight out of play.


0-0

8:07PM

20' Neil Byrne sees his shot from the edge of the Swindon box clipped round the corner after being allowed to run through Swindon's midfield under no pressure. The eventual corner comes to nothing as Swindon clear.


0-0

8:04PM

16' Swindon win their first corner of the game. Reed whips the ball in, Hunt gets a scrappy header to the cross and McKirdy is well-positioned in the box as his scuffed shot is well saved by Killip down to his left.


0-0

8:02PM

16' Hartlepool are attempting to play on the shoulder of the Swindon defence but are having problems timing their runs as Mark Cullen is caught offside twice in quick succession.


0-0

7:57PM

10' Swindon are starting to pile on the pressure but can't quite find the ball needed in the final third. Hartlepool look very assured in defence and this will be an interesting battle here at the County Ground.


0-0

7:53PM

6' Simpson finds himself on the wing and tries to fire a low cross across the face of the Hartlepool goal but Liddle is there and clears away.


0-0

7:50PM

4' McKirdy is fouled by Gary Liddle 25 yards out. Reed stands over the ball with his hands on his hips before hitting it straight into the wall.


0-0

7:49PM

2' Swindon look to break quickly from their own half with Iandolo attempting to slip McKirdy through. It's a delightful ball but McKirdy is too quick and the ball bounces off his heels.


0-0

7:46PM

KICK OFF: Hartlepool get us underway.


0-0

7:43PM

There will now be a minutes silence for remembrance day.

7:41PM

The players are walking out and we are nearly ready to get underway. It's really great to see Hartlepool wearing a blue and white striped kit with red numbers that means we can't see who is who.

7:37PM

Swindon comes into tonight's fixture off the back of a brilliant 2-1 away win over Newport County at the weekend. However there is concern for the Robins with Ben Garner's side boasting the unfortunate record of the worst home form in the league, winning just once, drawing three times, and losing three times at SN1.


In comfortable comparison however, Hartlepool United have lost their last three games and have the third-worst away record in the league.


Swindon Town need to win tonight if they are to be taken seriously as promotion contenders and what better a chance than tonight against a wounded Hartlepool side.

7:29PM

So let's see how the visitor's line-up for tonight's clash as interim manager Antony Sweeney makes two changes following the weekend 3-1 away defeat to Forest Green Rovers.
