Paulo Di Canio dedicates Swindon Town's FA Cup victory to the club's supporters and his father, who died recently.

Swindon Town manager Paulo Di Canio has dedicated his side's FA Cup win over Wigan Athletic this afternoon to the club's fans and his late father.

The County Ground was full to capacity as goals from Alan Connell and Paul Benson saw Swindon come from behind to beat their Premier League opponents 2-1.

"I'm very happy for all these [fans]," the Italian told BBC Radio Five Live. "We can make something special for these fans.

"I want to dedicate this win to them and also my father."

Di Canio's side have only been beaten once in their last 19 matches.
