Town fans vented their frustration after this defeat - and nearly all of it was targeted at manager Maurice Malpas.

Speaking to SwindonWebTV immediately after the final whistle, supporters questioned the tactical decisions that led to Millwall taking all three points - the Robins' fourth consecutive home defeat.
 
"It's just not good enough," said one, "and I have to question whether the manager is up to the job. It's that simple."
 
"We need a change in manager. And we need it now before it's too late," said another.
 
The general concensus coming after Swindon put in another lacklustre performance, and were punished by a Millwall side hardly better.

Jack Smith then luckily curled in a shot cum cross just after the break to give the already frustrated home fans some cause for hope - and a brief Town offensive to cheer.
 
But when Millwall weathered that, and then scored again on 75 minutes through Lewis Grabbage, the boos started.

Poor start:
Easter puts Millwall ahead
 
The game ended in controversy when goalscorer Easter was sent-off in the dying minutes for a second bookable offence.
 
A decision that brought an angry reaction from Millwall manager Kenny Jackett.
