Crewe 1 Swindon 3 

League One
 
RESULT: Crewe Alexandra 1 Swindon Town 3
Crewe scorer: King 61
Swindon scorers: Smith 63, Thomas 82, Ajose 90
 
 
 
Swindon's two new signings got off to the best possible start on Saturday, both notching debut goals in a three-goal victory over the Railwaymen.
 
It was a promising performance from Town, despite falling behind midway through the second half.
 
The Swindon defence giving Adam King all the time in the world to pick out the net from a good 25-yards.
 
Fortunately, the long range strikes didn't end there, and parity was restored just 2 minutes later.
 
Town midfielder Tom Smith finding the back of the net with a similarly ruthless finish from the edge of the box.  
 
But Swindon weren't done yet, and it was Birmingham loanee Wes Thomas' turn to step up and show what he's all about.
 
Finding space in the box, spinning the last defender, and firing home into the roof of the net.
 
With the seconds ticking away until the final whistle, it was left to Nicky Ajose to put the icing on the cake - finding space and firing an unstoppable shot between 2 Crewe defenders.
 
Town manager Mark Cooper later commented: "Once you get Ajose and Thomas on the pitch you’ve got a chance of scoring goals. We knew when we opened it up they’d get chances.
 
Wes has shown throughout he’s strong and powerful. If he gets in the box he’s not easily brushed off. It was a brilliant finish as was Nicky’s."
