Swindon 3 Crawley 0 

Npower League Two

RESULT: Swindon Town 3 Crawley Town 0
Swindon scorer: Rooney 39, Bodin 53, Benson 68
Paolo Di Canio ironically thanked the FA after watching from the stands as Town swept Crawley aside.

The Town manager was serving the first of a two-game touchline ban after being sent off for the third time this season, and witnessed a performance he described as "incredible" - including a goal of the season effort from Billy Bodin.

"His technique was very, very good," a smiling Di Canio said, "I applauded his volley, which came at just the right time for us.

"It was a pleasure to watch from my seat in the stand tonight. The Football Association can ban me for the rest of the season if we keep playing like this."


Bodin's cracker just after half-time doubled Swindon's lead during a crucial period. Wes Foderingham in the Town goal being by far the busier keeper as Crawley twice threatened to cancel out Luke Rooney's opener.

But after surviving the best Swindon's promotion-chasing rivals could throw at them, Di Canio's men scored a second - then sealed the points in style with a tap in by Benson.

The win leaves Town poised in 4th, just a point off top spot with two games in hand.
