The game's only goal came eight minutes after the break courtesy of James Collins, who weaved his way through the U's defence before slamming a low shot past Sam Walker.

But Dunne felt his charges deserved at least a point and said: "I don't agree that it was the right result.

"When they got the goal we had to go for it and the game became a lot more open.

"It was a scrappy game but I thought we were well in it and I thought we matched them. We had chances to score and we forced corners so I think overall we're disappointed we didn't come away from the game with at least a draw.

"Swindon's goal came against the run of play and we had a corner kick that got cleared and we switched off for a moment from a throw-in. That cost us because we need everybody concentrating and unfortunately at that moment we didn't and they scored.

"Once they went ahead they made it very difficult for us and we couldn't break them down.

"We threw a couple of forwards on and went for it but I thought we did well."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
