LIFELONG Swindon Town fan Vic Morgan is at it again, musing about the Robins’ latest League One victory at Bradford City…
ENJOYMENT can come in many ways.
Mostly it’s a pleasurable experience. It can also come after being put through the mill for a couple of hours. That’s what happened at Valley Parade on Saturday.
Swindon’s performance at Bradford City was one of the best I’ve seen in recent months. Despite a poor start in which, to be honest, they were battered for the first 10 minutes, they came back to win. It was a performance full of fight and some great football.
I don’t think any of the 300-plus Town fans that were there came away with anything but a smile on their face. That wasn’t the case just four minutes in though. Having watched the incident many times over since the match, my reaction is the same as it was watching it live.
Wes Foderingham’s challenge on the Bradford player was a decent and fair one which won the ball. I still cannot see how a penalty should have been awarded. If the tackle had been by a defender outside the box, I doubt a free-kick would have been given.
Just one of many bizarre incidents that occurred on a cloudy Yorkshire afternoon. Still, justice was served by an excellent save by Wes and the double strike by new old boy Jon Obika put the icing on the cake. Obika’s performance was another massive plus.
After not impressing during his first spell at the club, he certainly did on Saturday. Jon looks the part. Strong, and with some skill, he will get goals. The chants of "Super Jon Obika" must have been music to his ears. Great start, keep it going.
A terrific day then and by the way, Jake Reeves entertained us royally before the game with some wicked free-kick practice. Another weapon in the Town’s growing armoury. Nothing to complain about here, just enjoyment.
