Chelsea loanee John Swift was one of the major talking points on Twitter as Swindon Town were able to beat Coventry City comprehensively at the Ricoh Arena.
The 19-year-old started in midfield for the Robins and it didn’t take long for his influence on the game to give the away side a stranglehold on their opposition. Andy Williams was able to put Swindon 1-0 up on eight minutes, before grabbing his and Town’s second from the penalty spot just 10 minutes later.
In the second half, the South West-based side had to wait until the last 10 minutes of normal time for their third and final goal, which came through former Tottenham Hotspur striker Jonathan Obika.
The most important factor was the result, which put Swindon back in top spot in the League One table, but the performance would have certainly given their promotion rivals something to think about – especially the display from new boy Swift.
During and after the game, supporters from various clubs around the English divisions gave their opinion on the young midfielder, with a lot of them tipping him for a very bright future.
