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."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
