Swindon 0-2 Macclesfield

Tony Diagne

A stunning 35-yard free-kick from Tony Diagne helped non-league side Macclesfield Town to a shock FA Cup first round win at 10-man Swindon Town.

Diagne put the Silkmen ahead before Robins defender Aden Flint was shown a straight red card following a poor challenge on Amari Morgan-Smith.

Away goalkeeper Lance Cronin saved from Simon Ferry and James Collins headed wide as Swindon pushed for a leveller.

But Louis Thompson put the ball into his own net for Macclesfield's second.

Di Canio wants to fine Swindon team

"I will take some action. I will ask [for the players to receive] a fine for unprofessional behaviour.

"We are average individuals in terms of professionalism and desire.

"The approach from the players was pathetic, rubbish.

"They have to respect their shirt, the fans and the money they have at the end of the month."
