Swindon Town 1-0 Tranmere Rovers

Dany N'Guessan

Swindon's impressive home record continued when Dany N'Guessan's penalty condemned Tranmere to a fourth straight league defeat.

N'Guessan slotted home from the spot when Alex Pritchard was brought down by Tom Hateley after half an hour.

Rovers soon responded and almost levelled when Liam Ridehalgh's drive was well saved by Wes Foderingham.

The hosts looked likely to double their lead, but a fingertip save from Owain Fon Williams denied Massimo Luongo.

Post-match: Swindon boss Cooper

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"We have to get used to the fact that teams are going to put everybody behind the ball to start the game with.

I thought we totally dominated the first 45 minutes. If you don't get that second goal it becomes tense but we had chances to kill the game off.

I asked the players for a clean sheet before the game, I said to them if they get a clean sheet today they win the game.

Over the course of the season you get games when you can't play at the top of your game but it's important you win the game."
