Andy Williams has scored 11 league goals for Swindon this season

Swindon Town eased to their fifth consecutive win in League One with a 3-0 win over 10-man Notts County.

Andy Williams gave Swindon an early lead with a low driven shot following good work by Massimo Luongo.

Williams doubled Swindon's lead after half-time from close range, converting a magnificent cross from Ben Gladwin.

Notts midfielder Liam Noble was sent off for an elbow on Nathan Thompson before Luongo completed the victory with a neat finish from six yards out.

Williams has now scored 11 league goals for Swindon this season, including three in his last three league games.

Swindon, who are second in the table and a point behind leaders Bristol City, have won six away games in League One this season, while Notts County are without a win in three league games and remain outside the play-off positions.

Notts County boss Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"We're disappointed. I'm hoping it will still be a successful season for us, but we've got to take our medicine today. Swindon are the best team I've seen at this level.

"We were fully aware of the capability of Swindon. They came here and played really well, and we didn't play as well as we could do.

"We are still just outside of the playoffs, and after last year when we were 10 points off safety, I would have grabbed that straight away."

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"I thought we played particularly well again. I thought we scored some really good goals, played some really good football.

"The most pleasing thing was that the game looked as though it could get out of control and we kept our discipline.

"We could have maybe scored a few more. It's always nice to put the game to bed quite early."
