PAOLO Di Canio’s Swindon Town secured a comfortable victory over Accrington Stanley at the Crown Ground in this afternoon’s League Two fixture.
Jake Jervis had a goal disallowed for offside for the visitors early in the game after Ian Dunbavin had saved Matt Ritchie’s effort.
But Jervis broke the offside trap with six minutes left in the first half, racing clear from a pass from former Blackburn Rovers youngster Raffaele De Vita before sliding the ball past Dunbavin.
And Swindon made their dominance pay when they scored their second goal in the 57th minute as Simon Ferry found Colombian loan signing Cristian Montano, who lashed home from the edge of the box.
