IT JUST AIN’T HAPPENING: Liverpool keeper Vigouroux beaten twice as Swindon winless run continues

Swindon Town are experiencing a rough trot in League One at the moment.


The Robins were beaten 2-1 at home by Peterborough United on the weekend to slump to their fifth defeat in six matches, leaving them sitting 19th on the tier three table.

At the heart of this poor run of form is goalkeeper Lawrence Vigouroux who started for the fifth straight match which ended without a victory, including the Football League Trophy defeat to Oxford United last week.

The Liverpool loanee, who briefly returned to his parent club after having his loan spell cut short after paying a fine in pennies, could have done better with the Posh's opening goal which came in the 38th minute.

Jon Taylor, who has earlier beaten Vigouroux with a long range effort that hit the crossbar, was released in the area and fired gaolbird from an angle with the ball ricocheting in off the legs of the English-born Chilean gloveman.

The second goal was a horror story for Vigouroux, who had exchanged passes with right-back Michael Smith, before he hesitated with his clearance which allowed Lee Angol to slot home with the goalmouth agape. The 21-year-old then kicked the ball away in disgust at his glaring error.

The Reds youngster did, however, make a clever save to parry away Michael Bostwick's driving effort before Swindon pulled one back when Bostwick's header from an Anton Rodgers free-kick ended up in the back of his own net.

It was a disappointing showing from Vigouroux but will give the former Tottenham youth player the impetus to improve and help his team bounce back from their substandard run of late.
