Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper admits that he is pleased to have secured all three points in today's 3-1 win against Shrewsbury Town at the County Ground.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper has admitted that he is pleased to have secured all three points in today's League One game against Shrewsbury Town.

The Robins left it late to secure the win at the County Ground, with Nile Ranger scoring with a minute to go, before Michael Smith's injury-time strike added gloss to the scoreline.

Cooper told reporters after the game: "I'm pleased to get three points.

"It was an atrocious game of football especially the way we tried to play. The most frustrating thing was letting them score so close to half time and that made it more difficult.

"At times we played some decent stuff as did Shrewsbury to be fair. There were too many silly mistakes, too many wrong decisions but it's three points. As lucky as we were we still got three points."

Swindon currently sit in eighth place in the League One table, five points off the top six.
