Robins' side remain rooted in the Championship relegation zone on goal difference having played a game more than fourth-bottom Sheffield Wednesday.

Chris Eagles scored the only goal of the game as he calmly slotted home after Marvin Sordell pounced on an error by Town captain Peter Clarke.

"I thought we played well," Robins said. "I was proud of the players, I thought they gave me everything.

"In all fairness, tonight's game was not going to be a season-defining game - it was a marker for the remaining games of the season.

"We've given a good account of ourselves, I thought we controlled it for the most part.

"We created a lot of chances but just couldn't get the killer touch.

"You've got to give them credit. They're a good side, they've got top players in the team.

"From our point of view, it was disappointing not to get anything from the game but, having said that, it was a good performance."

Robins added: "There's six games against teams that are around us now in the division that certainly will give us a chance to move out of the area we're in."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
