Dean Saunders won just eight of his 22 competitive matches in charge of Chesterfield

Chesterfield parted company with manager Dean Saunders following their fourth-straight defeat as Swindon cruised to victory.

Nicky Ajose put Swindon ahead by firing home Bradley Barry's cross before Louis Thompson fired under Tommy Lee.

The hosts came close to reducing the deficit when Dan Jones volleyed over while Jay O'Shea hit the crossbar.

Swindon's third came when Ben Gladwin teed up Jon Obika to score before Ajose sealed it with a cool finish late on.
