SWIN­DON con­tinue to live out a sea­son fit for the sil­ver screen af­ter leav­ing it late to nick what could prove to be a valu­able point in the race for pro­mo­tion.

The Robins were all over the place in the

Mill­wall looked to be on course for a sixth win in nine out­ings – form that has seen them nes­tle com­fort­ably in­side the play-off places – but missed out on the chance to strengthen their grip on fifth spot, de­spite boss­ing large parts of the game in front of their trav­el­ling faith­ful.

Gre­gory latched onto a long ball be­fore fin­ish­ing with aplomb be­yond Lawrence Vigouroux in the sixth minute.

And it took just five min­utes for the Lions to dou­ble their ad­van­tage af­ter for­mer Wales in­ter­na­tional Mori­son pun­ished more woe­ful de­fend­ing by the hosts.

But they were forced to de­fend for large parts of the se­cond half and failed to pro­tect their lead, much to early stages and de­served to trail by two goals head­ing in at the break, while an im­pres­sive Mill­wall out­fit were in the de­light of Swin­don boss Luke Wil­liams.

“Over the course of the 90 min­utes I think we were worth a point,” he said.

“It was frus­trat­ing to start slow and a bit hes­i­tant at the be­gin­ning, and we thought not hav­ing a game last week­end would be a prob­lem.

“They are a very good side as well but it was pleas­ing the way the boys came out with tempo in the se­cond half to try and keep go­ing at Mill­wall over and over and keep try­ing to cre­ate a chance to score.

“If you want to win lots of games then you need to be able to win all dif­fer­ent types.

“You have to be able to come from be­hind and you have to be able to go in-front and keep in front. cruise con­trol and good value for their lead.

How­ever, Swin­don are one of the best when it comes to deal­ing with ad­ver­sity and they showed true grit in the se­cond-half, lead­ing to a fran­tic fin­ish.

“I would pre­fer a few more where we go in front and stay in front, but at the mo­ment they are show­ing tremen­dous char­ac­ter to come back.

“It is all on the play­ers.We can try to help them with ideas of how to break down teams with dif­fer­ent strengths, but it is all on the play­ers.

“The play­ers on the pitch have got to be able to see things live and re­act to it on the pitch and that’s what they’ve done again.” 1 month = £2.99, 3 months = £7.99, 6 months = £13.99, An­nual = £23.99 Sub­scribe on our web­site www.racin­ga­
