Steve Jenkins was replaced by Andy Nicholas after only ten minutes. Jenkin's didn't appear to be injured, so it was just for a change of formation.

Swindon had a number of good chances throughout the game with Rory Fallon and Colin Heath both coming close.

Swindon also had goal keeper Tom Heaton to thank for keeping a clean sheet after he made a number of good saves including saving an one of one when he looked like Brentford would score he dived in and got to the ball. Heaton also had to tip a number of shot over the bar, and made up for his mistakes in last weeks game against Port Vale.

Brentford also managed to miss near near open goal in the first half from two yards out with no one to beat they still managed to hit the shot wide.

Both sides had plenty of chances in the second half, but just couldn't get the ball on target with enough power to score with Pook having his low powered shot saved.

Loan signing Bouazza from Watford had the ball in the back of the net for Swindon, but this was disallowed for offside.

Pook got round a number of players and could have passed to either Roberts or Fallon, but kept the ball for himself, before he lost it in another wasted Swindon chance.

Jerel Ifil was sent off again for picking up two late yellow cards, but this was too late in the game to make too much difference and Swindon were able to hold on for their first point since August, and it was Tom Heaton's first clean sheet and best game for the club since joining on loan from Manchester United.

Overall a good game even though their wasn't any goals. A draw was a fair result, but 2-2 or so would have reflected all the chances better. Swindon now take a break from the league and play Stevenage at home on Tuesday evening in the LDV Vans Trophy.
