Swindon Town extended their winning run to four matches with a dominant victory against Carlisle United.

Andy Williams gave the Robins an early lead with a sublime piece of skill to beat his man before slotting past Mark Gillespie in the visitors' goal.

James Collins and Williams added close range efforts after two pin-point Matt Ritchie crosses to make it 3-0.

Raffaele De Vita poked home a fourth from two-yards making it 16 goals without conceding for the hosts.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott tells BBC Radio Cumbria:

"There was a big difference in the two teams, with the improvement in the performances we've had we could've probably won four on the trot.

"They're (Swindon) off the back of two 5-0 wins they're playing very, very well and they're very strong.

"That's probably the most vociferous I've been in my career at half time.

"I'm asking players to help me, but they've got to help themselves, I stand and take responsibility for everything.

"I think there are a few players who think they could've offered a bit more.

"If it's fatigue then it's fatigue, it's only a part of the problem, it's not the excuse and the only excuse, we were second best in quality, second best in determination."
