Bristol City 2-0 Swindon

Scott Murray's ninth goal of the season put Bristol City on course for a comfortable win over Swindon.

The winger fired low past Bart Griemink after latching on to Tommy Doherty's precise through-ball on 12 minutes.

Brian Tinnion made sure of the points with a 25-yard scorcher on 38 minutes, putting more pressure on Swindon's under-fire boss Andy King.

The visitors could never match the quality of Tinnion and the pace of Murray, who had a first-half shot cleared off the line by the impressive Matt Heywood.

After a bright start which saw Eric Sabin head over and have a shot saved, Swindon were rarely able to test home goalkeeper Steve Phillips.

City comfortably held their lead in the second half without having to play particularly well.


Bristol City: Phillips, Coles, Butler, Hill, Murray, Burnell, Doherty, Tinnion, Bell, Roberts, Beadle. Subs: Myhill, Hulbert, Woodman, Lita, Brown.

Swindon: Griemink, Gurney, Heywood, Reeves, Duke, Robinson, Hewlett, Miglioranzi, Invincibile, Davis, Sabin. Subs: Farr, Edds, Willis, Jackson, Young.

Referee: G Cain (Merseyside)
