Hope Matias and McGeady kick on from yesterday's performance and goals. Players I'd love to see do well here. Matias as a forward? #swfc— Jamie Hall (@jamiehall7891) March 13, 2016
What a win today!! Forestieri back, McGeady first goal, Matias back on scoresheet and Hooper back to form! And away clean sheet! #swfc— James Reeves (@jamesreeves2000) March 12, 2016
Bannan red looks a little harsh but sadly I can't see us winning an appeal. All my 3 questions were answered though McGeady goals win! #swfc— Gavin Cook (@sirgavinofcook) March 12, 2016
