Di Canio was the focus of attention after last week saying his position was untenable because of off-the-field issues at the County Ground.

However, he told reporters he did not want to talk about the speculation over his future as Robins boss after seeing James Collins secure victory.

The Italian said: "This was all about the players. They have been Champions League and this was not about Paolo Di Canio.

"I appreciate you have come a long way to watch but I do not want to talk about Paolo Di Canio."

Collins revealed Di Canio was pleased with his team's performance in extending their unbeaten run to 10 matches.

The match-winner said: "The manager has congratulated us on the way we played and we will travel back happy. The gaffer has told us he's pleased with the way we're doing things as a team and that's what we're concentrating on.

"The mood is great in the dressing room and we're a close unit and we're sticking by each other. We're all committed and we're not going to get distracted by some off-the-field issues.

"We only see what we read in the papers on off-the-field stuff and we're just concentrating on what we're doing on the pitch. The top two is in our sights and it's definitely in our grasp this season."

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.
