Swindon Town 3-0 Notts County

John Swift
Swindon goalscorer John Swift, who is on loan from Chelsea, has also had a spell at Rotherham this season

Swindon got their promotion bid back on track as they inflicted a seventh defeat in nine on 10-man Notts County.

After keeper Wes Foderingham twice saved Swindon early on, Chelsea loanee John Swift beat Roy Carroll with a curling shot to put them in front.

Andy Williams doubled the lead from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Carroll before County's Liam Noble was sent off for a second yellow card.

Harry Toffolo sealed the win when he tapped home from close range late on.

The victory saw Swindon bounce back in style from a 3-0 home loss to Gillingham in midweek.

And Mark Cooper's side moved up a place to third in the League One table, with MK Dons fourth after losing at home to Preston, while Notts County dropped a place to 19th.

Notts County boss Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Nottingham:

Derry on Swindon v Notts County

"We're obviously disappointed to concede three goals away from home but I've watched the second goal back four or five times. It is 100% not a penalty.

"I can't stand here and back Liam Noble, he's got himself sent off for the third time this season and that is unacceptable. He needs to look himself very deeply and come out with a solution because he's done well when he's played for us but he hasn't played enough this season.

"What I will say is I'm disappointed we couldn't back up the very good performance we put in on Tuesday."
