The weather conditions at the County ground were truly awful today, but that was the case for both sides and hopefully Forest will not be offering this as an excuse for another sorry performance away from home.
Two own goals were to be one reason for the Reds downfall, but we should take nothing away from what sounded like a spirited Swindon performance. It was a game the home side dominated from start to finish and one they thoroughly deserved to win.
Forest went in at half time only the one goal behind after Perch headed into his own net 10 mins from the interval. You hoped that Forest would come out for the second half with the bit between their teeth, but it was more of the same as the home side once again took control of the game.
We did pull one back through Luke Chambers, as he headed in from the far post. It has to be said that even the equaliser came against the run of play with the home side still causing us problems. Forest just couldn't get the ball out of their own half. Bennett was booked whilst warming up, to add to the misery and Grant Holt picked up the same for a belt he received to the face.
Swindon regained their lead when another good cross by McGovern was headed in for the second own goal of the game, this time by Breckin. Although Tyson had what sounded like a good penalty shout turned down, anything other than victory for the home side would have been a travesty.
Our away form is now real cause for concern. It's now 9 games since a win on our travels and if we are to gain promotion then this has to change. Forest are away again on Wednesday night, this time to struggling Millwall. All of a sudden, that has become a must win game.
