Gareth Ainsworth

"It was a great win against a really good Swindon side. They have bought players in, good attacking options and when you can do that you have good options and good movement up front. To keep their players at bay was tough but then you go the other side with your Tyson's, Akinfenwa's and Mackail-Smith's, then you will get goals.

"It was a good game for the forwards. What a fantastic free-kick by Matty Taylor. It was one of the best free-kicks I have ever seen live. I thought we just edged it on chances. I couldn't see anything wrong with Akinfenwa's diving header goal. I don't know why the referee disallowed that but I am really pleased he had another chance to put that right and the cross in from Dominic Gape was superb. It was one of those teasing ones where the keeper has come and didn't get it and if there is anyone you want on the end of it, it is probably the best header of the ball in the Football League, never mind League Two."

"If we score one more than the opposition then clean sheets aren't that important. Obviously we set out to address the goalscoring problem two years ago. I think you can safely say we have done that.

"At the back we have Tafari Moore and Dan Scarr who are inexperienced and you are probably going to look at people making mistakes but hopefully they go onto have good careers. We will work with that. All of them are really good defenders and this game was a tough test for them. Clean sheets would be nice but if we can score one more than the opposition for the rest of the season, I would take that."
