Kenny Jackett appears to have halted the slide and currently see's his side sit second in the table.

Vital Quotes:

"With the money comes added pressure and playing at home, if they`re not winning early on the pressure comes because people do expect them to walk it.

"If you take them pound for pound they`ve probably got the best squad. With the manager they`ve got they`ll get very close

Swindon Town Manager Mark Cooper
