Snapshot | Robbo strikes

13th June 2020

Andy Robinson is congratulated by his team-mates after scoring for Swansea City at Scunthorpe United.

It was February 2006, and Kenny Jackett’s Swans were at Glanford Park for a League One clash.

The visitors were in the hunt for promotion having made a fine start to life in League One after marking the final season at Vetch Field by climbing out of the bottom division.

But they finished up frustrated at Scunthorpe despite falling behind to a Billy Sharp goal.

Robinson is seen alongside Adrian Forbes, Alan Tate, Leon Knight and Adebayo Akinfenwa having equalised from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Cleveland Taylor.

The Swans then went in front thanks to a fine finish from Knight, and for a long time they looked to be on course for victory.

But former Swans striker Steve Torpey spoiled his old club’s day when he met a 92nd-minute corner with a header which went in off the post.

There was more disappointment for Jackett’s team at the end of the season, as they were beaten in the play-off final by Barnsley.
