The View From The Opposition: Swindon

STEVE Morison returned to the starting line-up on Wednesday night and fired Millwall to victory over local rivals Charlton Athletic with a brace in a 3-1 win.

The Christmas programme continues on Boxing Day, as the Lions host Swindon Town. Robins fan and blogger Steven Fyfe provides The View From The Opposition.

What made you support Swindon?: They are my hometown club and my family support them.

The League One table is predictably tight, but at the halfway point of the season, Swindon sit perilously close to the bottom four – how has your season gone so far and do you see a fight against relegation after Christmas?: To say it has been poor is an understatement, but it was expected. To sell your top scorer (Nicky Ajose) to a rival (Charlton Athletic) for peanuts doesn't help. Our squad was poor last year and has not really been improved, although I like Sean Murray (a permanent signing from Watford) and Lloyd Jones (on loan from Liverpool).



Millwall, meanwhile, are in mid-table, not knowing whether to look up or down. How do view their prospects for the second half of the season?: In the grand scheme of things, you are underachieving, too. A squad like yours should be in the play-offs minimum. If I were a fan, I'd be frustrated, but definitely looking up, not down.

Which Swindon players will Neil Harris have to watch out for on Boxing Day? Likewise, which Millwall players will you be most worried about?: There isn't really a Town player to fear. 'Vigs' (Lawrence Vigouroux) has drastically improved in goal and has been immense, so hopefully you will find it difficult getting past him.

Michael Doughty and Murray in midfield may cause some issues. I hope Nathan Delfouenso starts up top, as I think he could be our best striker if given the chance.

For Millwall, Steve Morison is an obvious threat and Jordan Archer is a great goalkeeper. I like Shane Ferguson on the left, though.

Finally, a score prediction?: Only because our luck and form has to change sometime, I will say Millwall 1-3 Swindon Town, but I will take a point if you are offering it.
