Swindon boss declares Wembley final defeat will not halt promotion push

Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio insists the 2-0 Johnstone's Paint Trophy final defeat to Chesterfield will not derail his side's promotion bid from League Two. "It happens to the best players in cup finals, they lose concentration. But not these players in the league, no," said Di Canio.

"We next play at home and that is our fortress, so I don't worry. It is a local derby (against Bristol Rovers) so a lot of people will come and support my players.

"These players have the energy and the personality over a season. It will not affect us."
