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.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
