Dartford 1-5 Swindon Town

Swindon Town made light work of National League South side Dartford in a thumping FA Cup first round win.

Timi Elsnik netted twice for the League Two club with a volley and header either side of Harry Smith's right-foot drive before half-time.

Amine Linganzi volleyed in left-footed just after the interval to net the Robins' fourth just before Paul Mullin slid in to poke home a fifth goal.

Dartford found a late consolation through centre-back Richard Sho Silva.
