This was Swindon's 5th home defeat of the season in a row, and if it wasn't for their away record Swindon would be bottom of the table.

Swindon made no chances from the side which beat Hereford in the week with Brezovan starting in goal again.

It was a poor start for Swindon with Huddersfield going ahead after only just 6 minutes with a goal from Dickinson from 6 yards out.

Swindon then started to have plenty of the play and had the perfect chance to equalise on 25 minutes when they were awarded a penalty after a foul on Micheal Timlin. Simon Cox took the kick, and was on target, but the Huddersfield 'keeper dived the correct way and was able to save it.

Within seconds, and with most of the Swindon players at the other end of the pitch Huddersfield broke away and scored with a Roberts shot from the edge of the box making it 2-0.

On 69 minutes Huddersfield made it 3-0 after Swindon had cleared the ball off the line only for the unmarked Flynn to score from the edge of the box.

On 88 minutes Craig Easton got a goal back for Swindon, but it was too little too late.

Overall Swindon played well, but a few defensive errors allowed Huddersfield to take all 3 points. There were also plenty of calls for Malpas to resign during the game.
