Swindon 1 Scunthorpe 2 

League One (but not for long)
 
RESULT: Swindon Town 1 Scunthorpe United 2
 
Swindon scorer: Ince 85
Scunthorpe scorers : Wallace 5; Mantom 71
 
Swindon Town were the laughing stock of football this weekend after not only being relegated - but initially even refusing to mention it in their official match report.

Such is the denial after yet another painful home defeat means the Robins will be visiting the likes of Accrington Stanley & Lincoln City in League Two next season - just one step away from the Vanarama. Most probably without any of the few key players Swindon will need if they are to bounce back up.
 
"The drop means losing about 1 million in revenue," confirmed under fire chairman Lee Power after the game, "and that means a total review of all players and staff here at the County Ground.
 
"It's a massive disappointment all round."

Needing three points to try and keep their faint survival hopes alive, there was certainly no spirit on the pitch akin to England's unlikely comeback in the Ashes of 1981 - even with Sir Ian Botham in the stands supporting his beloved Scunthorpe.
 
Just the opposite in fact, as a tame Town went behind in only the fifth minute before the visitors rubbed salt in the wounds with another with 20 minutes to go after dominating the game.
 
Even a late consolation from Rohan Ince - who put in one of the very few positive performances - was enough to save face or the inevitable trap door.
 
The boos & anger from disgruntled fans directed at the Town Board at the final whistle summing up a season everyone connected with Swindon would rather forget.
