Nigel Pearson could be heard launching into another “ostrich” rant as his Robins had their wings clipped by highly motivated Swans.
The Robins flew out of the traps and once again Steven Benda did his best to tease his opponents by giving them the ball in a dangerous area, only to thwart them at the last second.
Having failed to win at the their own nest since the end of January the Robins applied the pressure but lacked the killer punch of, say, a Peregrine Falcon or a Hawk and so the Swans were let off the hook – and that’s the last pun for today, otherwise readers will give me the bird!
The Swa…away side…clawed their way into the contest and new signing Joel Piroe continued his pleasing habit of being unafraid to run at opponents and have a dip from distance. This time it resulted in him playing a long distance one-two off the goalpost before calmly passing into the net from 15 yards.
With the Swa…Welsh side…leading, it was now much more of an even contest and both sides traded blows but without further addition to the score.
Three goals in four appearances for new boy Piroe, a first league win for Sexy Russ and a thrilling away trip for the 2,300 strong travelling Jack Army – winner winner chicken dinner. Oh, another bird. Sorry!
