City had to settle for a point after failing to break down Town's 10 men following Alex Pritchard's 54th-minute red card.

Wes Foderingham saved well from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Sam Baldock, while centre-backs Troy Archibald-Henville and Jack Stephens were outstanding in repelling some threatening City attacks.

Home goalkeeper Frank Fielding had to make a fine double save from Michael Smith after 57 minutes but after that his side poured forwards, aided by some attacking substitutions, without conjuring up a finish.

Cotterill said: "We played well and deserved to win, but you have to credit Swindon for the way they defended.

"If there was a criticism it was that we didn't get a decisive head or a foot on the many dangerous crosses we put in.

"We started well, Swindon then got into the game, and after the sending-off we dominated. By the end we had a lot of attacking players on the park and just couldn't come up with the goal our play merited.

"A clean sheet was welcome and overall I was pleased with the performance. It's another game we can build on and another step in the right direction."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
