IT’S HARD to find a word to describe the scenes from Tuesday night.

Nauseating comes close, but still doesn’t cover it.

It wasn’t just the fact we lost to our neighbours for the fifth time in a row.

But it was witnessing the poor state of the side out on display.

After the game opinion between fans seemed to be mixed on who is at fault for the mess we find ourselves in. Is it Mark Cooper or Lee Power?

Opinions on the manager have been mixed ever since his appointment.

But last season no one can deny that he and Luke Williams did a great job in moulding a side together that challenged for promotion.

Going into our JPT fixture, Cooper was missing eight first-team players. Any manager would find it difficult to put together a winning team heading into a derby game missing all his key players.

And that number has increased to 10 as Jordan Turnbull will be suspended and Brad Barry has been added to the growing injury list.

But taking out the injury problems, Cooper has made some bizarre team selections and substitutes, you sometimes wonder if he has any other ideas if the opposition works out how to stop us.

There have also been rumours of a rift in the management team.

Along with the manager being criticised, the chairman doesn’t come out unscathed.

Power has done a good job at Swindon, he’s invested a lot of money and time into helping us rebuild but he isn’t blameless.

Putting aside the ridicules press ban , Power is in total control of player recruitment, and at the moment our squad looks unbalanced in key positions and in quality.
