|view McMaster's match-by-match record|
Manager Andy King moved to sign McMaster on a month's loan from Leeds United in September 2004, as cover for front duo Sam Parkin and Rory Fallon - and though he signed too late to play in a home match with Bradford, Parkin's sending off in that game handed McMaster his chance the following week, when he scored the Town's second at Stockport on October 2nd, in a match where Swindon threw away a three goal lead.
The signing of Christian Roberts the following week kept McMaster out of the starting line-up, but he returned for the following game, this time playing on the left side of midfield at Port Vale. It was his last start for the Town - his next appearance being one of the shortest ever in a Town shirt - after coming on in the 67th minute at Barnsley, he lasted little longer than ten seconds - a horrific collision following an attempted diving header leaving McMaster with concussion.
The following week, he was recalled to Leeds - bizarrely due to an injury to James Beattie at Southampton! Beattie's injury meant that the Saints recalled Brett Ormerod from his loan spell at Elland Road, and in turn, McMaster returned there as cover.
