Alex Gilbert makes Swindon debut

Catch up with the action for our players this weekend

6 September 2021

Life at Swindon Town for Alex Gilbert began with a dramatic late point away at Stevenage on Saturday.

Alex came off the bench for the final 15 minutes of Swindon's trip to Hertfordshire as The Robins rescued a point deep into injury-time thanks to Jack Payne’s penalty. Arsenal Under-21s head to the County Ground tomorrow night in the EFL Trophy.  

Another beginning life at a new club over the weekend was Jaakko Oksanen. The 20-year-old remaining an unused substitute as goals from Michael Garrity, Robbie Muirhead, and Cameron Blues secured Greenock’s place in Round Three of the Scottish Challenge Cup at the expense of Celtic B. Gus MacPherson’s side head to Kilmarnock on Saturday in the Scottish Championship.

In Sky Bet League One, Aaron Pressley came off the bench for the final ten minutes as AFC Wimbledon moved up to 11th following a 3-1 win over Oxford United. Mark Sykes gave Oxford a first-half lead but Jack Rudoni’s double, either side of a Will Nightingale effort, turned things around at Plough Lane. The Dons are also in EFL Trophy action tomorrow night, hosting Portsmouth.

Ellery Balcombe and Burton Albion play tonight in Sky Bet League One, away at Bolton Wanderers, while Patrik Gunnarsson and Halil Dervişoğlu, who are both currently on international duty, will have to wait until the weekend to get their first taste of action with their new clubs.
