From eating Swans to rusting Iron

After our swan-taming Saturday last week we now travel on ward, upward and northward, to sunny Scunny- will it be a continuation of our recent good form, or more of a reality check on this years progress?

After the misdemeanours of several Burberry-clad Gasheads last weekend its back to the football, and back to getting a good finish so we have something to look forward to for next season.

We made beating Swansea look relatively easy, no offence Jacks, but you looked out of sorts last Saturday.

Goals from 36-goal attacking pairing Junior Agogo and Richard Dickie Walker gave The Mighty Gas a two goal cushion before half time, before Rovers out muscled Swansea in the second half, making sure no repeat of Chester was on the menu.

Performance wise, it was a red-blooded showing, but lots of footy to savour as well, as the tempo was kept going by the nutters in the Vertigo City stand who constantly banged the surrounding panels of the stand and also helped maintain a bit of atmosphere.

I just hope they weren’t the ones involved in the trouble, because I thought they were quite entertaining throughout the game.

The defence, although not 100% solid every second of the game, looked a lot better than recent results suggest.

The fear of more failure was evident when a few times during the match the CB’s would tend to head clear, or lump clear when plenty of time was available to get the ball on the deck.

Another lovely little game was chalked up for Ryan use your height Williams, he can create a lot for us next season, and he has been very good for us since ending his loan spell at Forest Green Rovers.

One assist also went to noobie Jon Bass (As in Base or B-ass? I just dont know!) who supplied a cracking cross for Juniors header.

Bass looks solid and determined, but still lacks a bit of pace, but that will come as he gets his fitness back, i was a bit surprised to see him in the 1st team so soon after such a lengthy break from football.

So, to tomorow, and Scunny will be well up for it- but then again, Swansea should have been as well; and although I think this test may be too big for us at the moment dont be surprised by any away-day antics from El Fruitcake and the boys.

Viva El Fruitcake!
