On Saturday afternoon Swindon Town succumbed to a 2 – 1 defeat to Scunthorpe United, which confirmed their relegation to Sky Bet League Two for next season. Swindon fans took to Twitter to react to the relegation.

Swindon Town will be spending the 2017/18 campaign in the fourth tier of professional English football.

Scunthorpe United took an early lead. The 24-year old Murray Wallace opened the scoring sheet on the afternoon, scoring in the fifth minute of the game. The whistle blew at halftime and both teams returned to the dressing rooms with the score staying at 1 – 0 to the travelling side.

After the 15 minute break, and the game kicked off for the second half, The Iron added to their goal tally. In the 71st minute, Sam Mantom scored, which looked to seal the Robins’ fate into League 2. However, Swindon netted one back in the 85th minute, thanks to Rohan Ince. But unfortunately, for the Robins, they were unable to find any more goals.

Swindon Town travels to The Valley on the final day of the season to play against Charlton Athletic. The leading Charlton protest group, the Coalition Against Roland Duchatelet (CARD) has major demonstrations and protests planned in an attempt to drive out their controversial and unpopular owner, Roland Duchatelet.

With Swindon hovering around the relegation zone for a significant time this season, the club’s owner, Lee Power has become increasingly unpopular. It will be interesting if the Robins take the opportunity at The Valley next Sunday to join in with the protests, and use them as an opportunity to make clear to Power their dissatisfaction with his mismanagement.

Due to Swindon Town’s relegation to Sky Bet League Two, Swindon fans have taken to Twitter to react to the thought of a League Two campaign next season.
