MacDonald wants Robins run

21 April 2013

Swindon boss Kevin MacDonald wants the Robins to go into the play-offs with some momentum behind them after a 3-0 win over Stevenage.

The Robins clinched a top-six spot with the home win over Stevenage, who were forced to play with 10 men for 50 minutes following Dani Lopez's dismissal.

Defender Aden Flint scored twice, along with Gary Roberts.

MacDonald stressed his side will not be sitting back as they head to Scunthorpe for their last game of the season with their play-off berth sealed.

He said: "We need to keep the momentum going by getting the right result at Scunthorpe, but then every other manager will be saying that."

MacDonald admitted his side's cause was assisted by Lopez's red card five minutes before half-time.

Referee Gary Sutton was left with little option but to apply the letter of the law as Lopez raised his hands and appeared to slap Swindon skipper Alan McCormack.

MacDonald said: "We were helped by the sending off. We were a little sloppy at times in midfield, but we've now had a couple of good solid performances behind us."

Boro boss Graham Westley said he did not see enough of the sending off incident to comment.

He said: "People who did see it say that Dani was hit first and then tapped the fellow around the face."
