Champions Swindon were forced to settle for a goalless draw against The Bantams on the final day of the npower League Two campaign. City enjoyed the lion’s share of the play and, with more decisive finishing, they would have ended their own disappointing season with a deserved win. Visiting keeper Wes Fotheringham did well to save a shot from Nahki Wells in first-half stoppage time, after James Hanson had flicked the ball into his path, and Wells had two more chances in the second half – both provided by Hanson.
First, he saw his shot blocked in the 50th minute and then shot wide of the far post 10 minutes later. However, City’s best chance fell to David Syers in the 67th minute. Will Atkinson played him through on goal, but his shot lacked power and Fotheringham saved. Swindon, who were second best for most of the match, finished strongly, but the nearest they came to scoring was when Jon McLaughlin turned skipper Paul Caddis’ 20-yard free-kick over the crossbar before striker Paul Benson fired into the side-netting.
