Michael Jolley paid tribute to his stubborn side after watching them fight back from a goal down at Swindon this afternoon. 

He said: “I think it says everything about the way the lads are..

“Swindon’s a tough place to come, and they’re on quite a good run and they’re a good team, and I think to force our way back into it, get the draw and maybe even have chances to win the game showed a lot of courage and great character from the boys, so I’m very proud of that.”

On Ohman's red card, Jolley commented: "From pitch level, the second one looked like they ran into each other, so that could potentially look a bit harsh.

"I think the first one was probably a yellow card, so without seeing it again it’s difficult to argue too much."

The gaffer added:“Certainly in the first half I think Swindon were the better team, and it was only our goalkeeper and their profligacy that prevented them from going ahead.

“In the second half, I think it was more even, but nevertheless when you go down to ten, it’s difficult, and then we went a goal behind.

“But we tried to be as brave as we could with two strikers up, and obviously we got the goal with Luke, so all things considered I think it’s a good point for us.”
