Bristol Rovers   3 - 1   Swindon

Bristol Rovers v Swindon

Bristol Rovers 3-1 Swindon

Bristol Rovers secured their first win under new boss Dave Penney with a comfortable victory over Swindon.

The home side took an early lead when Will Hoskins picked up Chris Lines' through ball and fired past Phil Smith.

Jo Kuffour capitalised on a defensive mix-up to double their lead after the break but Swindon struck back through Jon-Paul McGovern's volleyed effort.

Jeff Hughes headed in Hoskins' cross at the near post to restore Rovers' advantage and seal the win.


Bristol Rovers Manager Dave Penney told BBC Radio Bristol:

"We got the early goal which got us going and just after half time we scored the second goal and killed the game a little bit, I couldn't have asked much more of the players.

"Dave McCracken's come in and given us some experience and leadership and know-how, and it enables the other boys, who everybody knows can play, to express themselves.

"It's a good result for us but it's important that they don't think it's finished, that's the season over now, we've got to go again."

Swindon manager Danny Wilson told BBC Wiltshire:
"The same situation arises every week. There's no danger and they get a soft goal.

"It's decision making all the time. We dominate the game for large periods of time and we shoot ourselves in the foot.

"The responsibility has to be taken at the back."
