Swansea 2-0 Chesterfield
16th March 2007
Swansea City move back into the play-offs tonight after a 2-0 home against strugglers Chesterfield.
Andy Robinson assisted one and scored the other to extend Martinez's unbeaten run to 4 games.
It took a while to get on the scoresheet but we scored 2 in a space of three minutes to get another vital win plus a moral-boosting clean sheet, our third in a row.
Martinez decided to push Craney up front alongside Abbott as Trundle is suspended and Akinfenwa is out injured.
Coincidence or not, Robinson has recently returned to form since Martinez has arrived, scoring at his old club Tranmere last week and scoring again tonight. He scored from the spot to give us the lead before assisting the second as Izzy headed in his cross.
