Stfc v Huddersfield 11 Oct 2008
One in the face:
Simon Cox comes off worst
This game changed in ten first-half seconds.
 
Simon Cox missed a penalty to level matters - then Huddersfield made it two-nil straight from the re-start.
 
A moment that defined the game: Town wasting the best chances and the visitors making the most of theirs.
 
Dickinson having got Huddersfield off to the best possible start when slotting home from a corner, before Roberts punished a defensive error from Amankwaah to volley home from just outside the box.
 
Flynn making sure of the points after a Town reshuffle at half-time failed to improve things.
 
The boos at the final whistle signalling the discontent of home fans, who have now seen Swindon lose five games in a row at the County Ground. Many of them voicing their frustration to SwindonWebTV outside the ground.
 
Craig Easton's 88th minute consolation forgotten as supporters continued to call for a change in management - and a shake up on the pitch.
 
"We just didn't look up for it again," said one fan, "no obvious leadership and looking very fragile at the back."
 
"What ever's going on, it ain't working. I do honestly think we now need a change all round." 
 
"What started as a season with high hopes is rapidly becoming a nightmare."
 
The big question of the day?
 
Just why was Derby manager Paul Jewell watching the game today from the Arkell's stand? Simon Cox, perhaps?
 
And is ex-Bristol Rovers manager Ian Holloway being lined up as the next Town manager? He was rumoured to be at the game.
