Swindon were short themselves but we’re able to field a full team, of which Jamie Brown and Martin Glover stepped up to the plate to contribute valuable points over the course of the match.
For Southampton, Gavin Wheeler showed he is still a class act to drop only a point all day, being supported well by Nathan Harris who seemed to be able to create overtakes and heat advantages from unlikely positions.
