Swindon 2-0 AFC Wimbledon

Swindon maintained their promotion bid with victory over AFC Wimbledon.

Paul Caddis gave them the lead with his fierce free-kick which went under the wall and was parried in off the post by visiting keeper Seb Brown.

Alan Connell sealed the points when he swept home Lander Gabilondo's cross from 12 yards.

Town could have won by more, with Matt Ritchie and Jonathan Smith hitting the Dons post and Connell twice striking the crossbar.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Di Canio praises Swindon maturity

Swindon Town manager Paolo di Canio told BBC Wiltshire:

"Trying to find a way to play our football with many, many players behind the ball was difficult.

"The result should have been greater.

"This period was crucial. I learnt a lot about this level and what's going on here."

AFC Wimbledon manager Terry Brown told BBC London:

We're on the slide - Brown

"I'm really proud of the work rate and the commitment the boys showed today. I thought they gave everything.

"I thought we were doing ok until their first goal but once the first goal comes in I can't look under my bench and see a plan B at the minute.

"The biggest problem is we're on the slide and I need to address that. I think my players need a little bit of help now."
