Swindon 1 Chesterfield 0

Swindon nearly took an early lead on 11 minutes when a Christian Roberts shot beat the Chesterfield goalkeeper, but hit the post.

In the first half Swindon had most of the play, but just couldn't score in front of goal.

Sammy Igoe also come close to scoring with a long range effort, but it wasn't on target.

In the second half Swindon were still having a lot of the play, but Chesterfield were starting to get back into the game, with ex Swindon striker Wayne Allison coming close for Chesterfield.

Rhys Evans had to make a very good save to keep Swindon in the game, but Chesterfield were starting to have more chances, and it seemed only a matter of time before they would score.

On the hour mark Roberts was lucky not to get himself sent off with alate tackle on a Chesterfield player which started a on pitch fight. Both Roberts and a Chesterfield player were booked, when another referee might have decided to sent them off.

The only goal of the game came on 63 minutes when Wayne Allison scored with a close range header.

Swindon had some late chances to equalise after a number of corners, but they couldn't get any shots on target, with sub Rory Fallon hitting a good chance into the crowd.

Overall a fairly average game. Swindon really should have got at least a draw out of the game, but they never really looked good enough to do any more.

Swindon now start a run of four home games in a row starting with Tuesday's nights visit of local rivals Bristol City in the LDV Vans Trophy.
