Postby Garawa » Sat Mar 06, 2021 10:02 am

- This is the Gills 100th meeting with Swindon. The Gills have won 33 meetings, Swindon 36 and there have been 30 draws.
- The last time the Gills travelled to Swindon (Feb 2017) they fell to a 3-1 defeat and is the only time in 10 meetings that Swindon have beaten the Gills. The Gills have won 5 of those 10 meetings.
- Swindon have lost their last 3 league matches and have twice lost 4 in a row. This followed an unbeaten run of 3 games (2 wins), the only time in the league this season that they hadn't lost after winning or drawing a game.
- Swindon have lost their last home game but have won 3 out of 5 at the County Ground. These have followed a run of just 2 wins and 8 defeats from the preceding 11 home games.
- Swindon's 21 defeats in their 34 league matches is the most in the division, 3 more than bottom side Rochdale and 2 more than Wigan outside of the relegation zone.
- Swindon have managed just 2 league clean sheets, the fewest in the division. It is 3 fewer than the next worst side (AFC Wimbledon) and 4 fewer than the 5 sides, including the Gills, with 6.
- Swindon have been behind for longest both at home and away. In total, they have been losing for 1,490 minutes in their 34 matches, an average of 43.8 minutes for every league match played. The next worst side, bottom club Rochdale, had been behind for 262 minutes less.


12.59 Kick Off [ 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 ]

13.39
Lee twists and turns his way into the box and chips on to the head of Oliver but a defender gets a vital touch to avoid a certain goal.

13.40
GOAL! Swindon Town 1-0 Gillingham: Pitman

13.41
Straight from the kick off, Olly Lee go on the attack and Swindon make a vital block to avoid an immediate equaliser.

13.45 Half time 1-0
Swindon have only had 3 home half time leads in the league this season and have won all 3 of them.

14.02
The second half kicks off.

14.15
GOAL! Swindon 1-1 Gillingham: Oliver
Akinde's header hits the crossbar and Oliver heads in the rebound.

14.19
GOAL! Swindon 1-2 Gillingham: Oliver

14.24
GOAL! Swindon 1-3 Gillingham: Dempsey

14.27
Cross comes in for Oliver to head in his hat-trick but he heads just over the bar.

14.46
Pitman should pull one back as his free header goes wide of the post when, if on target, Bonham was beaten.

14.47
Another chance for the hosts. The move eventually ends when Swindon appeal for hand-ball which is waved away by the ref.

14.51 FULL TIME 1-3

Great result, wish we had not played 2 or 3 games more than most other teams. I am glad were not in that scrap in the relegation zone this year, anyone in the bottom six could be one of the 4 going down.

Always better to have the points in the bag than to be under pressure to win games at the end if the season

A poor first half with the strong winds,and we went in at H/T 1-0 down.Credit to Evans and Raynor for tweaking things at H/T,and we fully deserved our come back.Two goals from the man on fire Oliver,with his second goal a very good finish from a really tight angle.Then Dempsey’s free kick taking a deflection to make it 1-3.Three goals in 8 minutes to complete the turnaround.They made 5 subs at once,but it didn’t make a difference luckily.A good win to put us on 50 points,and the double done over Swindon.
