Highly-rated winger Matt Ritchie scored the first goal and made others for Tommy Miller and Raffaele De Vita as the rampant Robins threatened to win by a bigger margin.

Di Canio's side are unbeaten so far this season, having not conceded a goal, and go in to Saturday's game against fellow promotion hopefuls MK Dons full of confidence.

Di Canio said: "This was the best performance since I joined the club. We were absolutely fabulous and I was proud to be their manager.

"We played as a team and worked hard all around the pitch. I am more than happy with the way we played.

"The result could have been six or seven-nil. I think we made only one mistake in 94 minutes and at times we were close to perfection."

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
