Swindon 4-0 Carlisle

Andy Williams

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.

No excuses after defeat - Abbott

"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."
