10:21pm

All over

10:20pm

Skipper Nathan Thompson was sent off in added time for a professional foul on Forster-Caskey.

FORSTER-CASKEY converted the spot kick.

10:17pm

Kasim has been excellent.

10:17pm

Albion have been on the rack in this second period and they had to clear Thompson’s low cross right in front of goal.

Home fans are really up for it.

10:13pm

Gardner booked for foul, soon followed by Forster-Caskey.

10:10pm

The warning had been there and KASIM waltzed through the defence before thumping home a fierce finish.

10:08pm

Swindon’s ten men haven’t given this up yet.

They have enjoyed some pressure in the second period and Ankergren produced a very sharp save – and hold - low to his left from Waldon’s shot.

The hosts are still playing their passing football and their fans appreciate it.

10:01pm

Half-time in extra-time

9:56pm

Then FORSTER-CASKEY drilled a penalty into the bottom corner after Colunga was fouled by Turnbull.

 

9:52pm

Swindon were reduced to ten men early in extra-time when George Barker suffered a shoulder injury in a challenge with Dunk.

Albion got the ball down and conjured a lovely goal.

McCourt took his time, spread a ball wide to the left and his low cross was met at the far post by COLUNGA.

9:45pm

Teixeira replaced O'Grady for extra time.

9:39pm

Branco denied Colunga with a great tackle in the Swindon area just before we completed six added minutes.

Extra-time now.

9:35pm

Swindon have had to take off sub Gladwin, replacing him with Waldon.

9:35pm

Att: 5,414 (628 away)

9:29pm

McCourt looks like he is enjoying himself out there, dropping deep and getting on the ball. He has sprayed a couple of nice passes out to his wide men – and nutmegged an opponent.

9:23pm

Terrific work twice in quick succession by Colunga to go outside his man on the left edge of the ox and fir low crosses which no one could convert.

Swindon have sent on Gladwin for their impressive midfielder Luongo and George Barker for Williams.

9:15pm

Swindon are still playing some very neat stuff at times and they carved through in the inside right channel before laying off to Louis Thompson, who skied his shot way over.

Albion were angered by a scything challenge on LuaLua by Branco on the touchline which somehow did not earn a booking. LuaLua went off a couple of minutes later, along with Crofts.

On went debutants McCourt and Gardner.

 

9:05pm

Yellow for right wing back Nathan Thompson for foul on LuaLua.

9:00pm

Suddenly Albion, who had been on the rack, so nearly scored.

Dunk headed Forster-Caskey’s header powerfully just under the bar but Foderingham seemed to touch it up on to the woodwork.

O’Grady’s follow up was blocked in the goalmouth at the expense of a corner.

Just a bit better there from the Seagulls with O'Grady working hard to win the flag kick in the first place. It was Albion's first of the game.

8:51pm

Crisp finish by Smith after Luongo slid him in for the goal.

Michael Smith shot inches wide a minute later as Swindon pour men forward.

8:49pm

Seconds from the restart and Swindon send Louis THOMPSON through to lash a shot low past Ankergren.

8:48pm

Second half is under way and Swindon are level

8:33pm

...they had to defend a bit more to reach that state of affairs.

Dunk got in another great clearance from another low cross and ther was panic when ankergen failed to hold a free-kick into the box.

But they got to the interval just about unscathed.

8:31pm

Albion lead at the break but...

8:26pm

A new dimension from Dunk has just offered Albion hope of a goal. He carried the ball from inside his own half to deep inside Swindon territory, then scooped a pass over the defence which Colunga volleyed off target from a tight angle.

LuaLua was the next to advance into the Town half with ball at feet and Kasim’s foul on him earned a booking.

8:22pm

Now the chorus from home fans is “We’re going to score in a minute” and no wonder.

They have just enjoyed about three minutes of intense pressure which saw Dunk head a goalbound Byrne shot over his own bar and then Forster-Caskey clear a Branco shot off the line with Ankergren beaten.

There have also been crosses and scrambles and hurried clearances as Swindon step it up again.

The local press boys around me are saying this is the best 45 minutes they have seen from Swindon this season.

8:18pm

Albion enjoyed a bit of possession for a while and it almost brought a goal.

Calderon got O’Grady to the byline and his cutback just evaded Colunga at the near post.

The passing is not quite as slick as in the last two games from the Seagulls but it is a good game to watch so far.

I really don’t like to stress a negative aspect of a quite stunning goal but one hopes Ince’s yellow for celebrating does not come back to haunt him.

There was a moment not long ago when he seemed reluctant to tackle on halfway as Swindon launched a counter attack.

8:09pm

Another free-kick not far outside the box, another right-footed curler by Kasim.

This time it was from a spot to the right of goal and he curled it wide of the near post.

Ankergren did not seem unduly bothered.

Hyypia is on the edge of his technical area not looking overly impressed as a long, straight ball rolls behind for a Swindon goal kick.

8:04pm

Another low cross from the right found Michael Smith in front of goal again but this time someone - possibly Dunk - made a key block at close quarters.

The home side will wonder how they are behind.

8:02pm

8:01pm

That was a quite sensational goal by Ince and nice work by Colunga in the build-up.

But it should have been cancelled out within two minutes. A Swindon free-kick into the box found Michael Smith unmarked in front of goal but he shot wastefully over.

Swindon are playing some nice stuff with Kasim pulling the strings.

7:58pm

Ince was booked for taking his shirt off as he celebrated.

7:57pm

Colunga got the ball wide left, looked up and chipped a precise ball to INCE arriving on the edge of the box.

And the midfielder unleashed a quite fabulous volley high past the stunned Fotheringam.

7:55pm

LuaLua dragged a shot wide but it has been a bright start by Swindon.

Albion have had to clear crosses from both flanks and Kasim tried his luck with a curling 25-yard free-kick which went well over.

And then Albion scored a stunning goal...

7:47pm

Lovely turn, poor pass. Colunga's first bit of action.

Albion are playing towards the Town End - or home end.

7:46pm

Expecting a passathon tonight.

Both teams like to knock the ball about.

7:44pm

And away we go...

7:40pm

If Navarro has got it right with his prediction of a draw, I'll be offering you particularly good value tonight with extra-time and penalties.

7:38pm

7:37pm

It's back to the cup - but will it be back to the future?

Albion lost 3-0 here in the same competition two years ago.

There were a few debuts that night - Kuszczak, Bruno and Bridge for Albion.

And of course the man who took the glory wth two goals: Alan Navarro!

Adrian Colunga to make his name tonight?

We will see before too long.

NOT being negative but with all Swindons possession and shots on goal are BHA really trying---yes good they are ahead but they need to close Swindon down and get another goal. Many of our players are on show here to Sammi and they need to impress to be in contention for League matches---good opportunity for them to shine!! and at present it appears they are not doing that.

I am hoping that our current level of performance is due to the fact that a lot of changes have been made for this match and the lads need time to gel.
United are losing 0-1 at MK Dons, they too just don't seem to have it together with the number of changes they have made either.

I can't help but wonder just how much importance clubs in the top two tiers place on this tournament. From our poit of view at least we are giving minutes to players that need them to help them get match fit. I think most teams can handle one or two changes and not lose their performance level, but seven is a lot. Unitd are getting slapped, and deservedly so, for those of you that didn't know.

To be honest Brighton are full of goals.

Although Bloom aint spent any money, seem to be doing alright.

Still aint played anyone decent yet.
