Swindon book Wembley place in JPT final

Swindon will meet Chesterfield in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final at Wembley after beating Barnet 1-0 at The County Ground. And Robins boss Paolo Di Canio dedicated the victory to his late father.

Di Canio, whose dad passed away in October, said: "I dedicate this win to my dad. It is a special moment because I never went to Wembley as a player.

"I am very happy for myself, because my mum and my dad will be happy. It is something special but the league is still the target to get promoted.

"My dream was to always play at Wembley, so I'm very happy. I spent eight years thinking every season I would love to play in a cup final at Wembley.

"It is something special and it is life. I do not like to talk about sacrifices. We decided we are going to Wembley because we played much better than the other side."
