How we did not get a hatful against Stourport Swifts I do not know, as we witnessed the ball whizzing past the wrong side of the post time and again.

In the end we secured only one point and dropped to 12th place. Danny Bloomfield made his home debut and impressed me. He seems to have quickly built up an understanding with Kevin Hawes and this could be so important during the course of the remainder of the season.

Six minutes before the break the Swifts took the lead and it was not until five minutes before the end and after three substitutions had been made by us that Richard Howell was able to equalise, when he sent in a shot which somehow evaded their keeper.
