NEW BEATS OLD AS ROBINS FIRE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

THE new­est League One man­ager out-gunned the old­est in an en­ter­tain­ing clash at the County Ground.

Luke Wil­liams was in charge of the Robins for the first time af­ter Martin Ling stepped down.

And he could well have re­gret­ted his de­ci­sion to make the step up in the open­ing ex­changes as Southend raced ahead.

But Swin­don stuck to their guns and, play­ing out from the back, were able to fight back to se­cure the three points.

Nicky Ajose and Jonathan Obika both bagged dou­bles to se­cure vic­tory for the Robins and make it a mis­er­able af­ter­noon for Shrimpers boss Phil Brown.

His side started the sea­son well but have now be­gun to stut­ter af­ter suf­fer­ing three de­feats in a row.
