Swindon   0 - 0   Tranmere

Graphic of Swindon 0-0 Tranmere

Swindon 0-0 Tranmere

Charlie Austin failed to impress the watching scouts as a missed penalty cost relegation-threatened Swindon a crucial three points.

The highly rated striker was denied from the spot by veteran Tony Warner after Joss Labadie had been harshly adjudged to have fouled Michael Timlin.

Tranmere's Lateef Elford-Alliyu hit the post in response.

Austin, who handed in a transfer request last week, could still have secured a win but he hit the bar.


Swindon Town boss Danny Wilson told BBC Wiltshire:
"We've defended very well tonight and we had to be on our toes and compete with the physical side of things.

"When you miss a penalty it's always going to be difficult to recover confidence wise but we kept at it well.

"But overall I think the clean sheet is the biggest positive we can have, it has to be, and try and build from somewhere."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"We didn't start the game well and we were hoping to come out and press them, but we didn't.

"If you keep a clean sheet, then you're coming away with at least one point and that's the basis for success.

"So if we can build on that and keep clean sheets, we'll be OK in the league sooner rather than later."
