Swindon Town eased their relegation problems by taking all three points at Portman Road on Saturday.

And it left manager John Sheridan admitting he was “well chuffed” after watching his side beat Ipswich Town 3-2.

Swindon players celebrate with Scott Twine, after his stunning strike to take them into a 2-1 lead.

“I think the main thing is, it’s not about the performance at this moment in time because of where we are in the league, it’s about picking points up from each game.

“So to come to a place like Ipswich and go home with three points, I’m well chuffed.”
