Michael Smith's 31st-minute finish cancelled out Steve Morison's opener for David Hockaday's side, but Rodolph Austin's second-half penalty restored United's lead and that is the way it stayed.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, Cooper said: "I thought we did okay but we need to work on being more potent and making the most of possession.

"Let's not forget, we're playing against a good Championship team.

"We dominated a lot of the ball and you could see the effect Hockaday's had on them (Leeds).

"It was a tight game and it could have gone either way."

Swindon begin their League One campaign at home to Scunthorpe on Saturday, August 9.

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.
