14,294 turned up at Ashton Gate including 2,368 who had made the short trip down to M4 to Swindon's only real local derby of the season.

Sam parkin was still out injured for this game, and will Ifil and Milner returning to their clubs after their loans had run out Andy King had to make a number of chances to the starting line up including playing Ian Herring and Bryan Howard.

Swindon got off to a winning start after Tommy Mooney scored from close range on 33 minutes to score his 7th goal of the season.

On 53 minutes Bristol City were level after a Peacock header was enough to beat Evans in the Swindon goal following a cross.

Swindon then fell behind on 74 minutes with a good goal by Brian Tinnion beating the diving Evans in the Swindon goal.

Swindon pushed for another goal to try and get at least a goal, but Brsitol City held on to knock Swindon out of a play off spot and down to 7th in the table.

Unlike the game against Luton mid week in this game not a single player for either side was shown a red or yellow card with the referee having a good game.

Swindon's next game is next Saturday at home when Stockport County visit the County Ground.
