Match Preview

Paolo begins Robins reign Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio will be without five of his summer signings as he prepares to make his eagerly-anticipated managerial debut at home to Crewe. First-choice goalkeeper Mattia Lanzano (side), defender Alessandro Cibocchi (ankle), winger Etienne Esajas (shoulder) and striker Mehdi Kerrouche (knee) are injured for the County Ground clash. Defender Alberto Comazzi will also miss out due to a one-match suspension carried over from a game played in Italy. As well as the quintet, reserve stopper Mark Scott (ankle) and young midfielder Abdul Said (knee) are sidelined. Raffa De Vita and Alan Connell are Di Canio`s only fit strikers for the encounter, with Uruguayan forward Nicolas Raimondi unavailable as he is only on trial. Namibia international midfielder Oliver Risser will captain the club over the forthcoming campaign. Crewe boss Dario Gradi has a full-strength squad at his disposal. The veteran manager will have all options available to him after Carl Martin, AJ Leitch-Smith and Luke Murphy shook off minor knocks and illnesses. Calvin Zola, Patrick Ada, Mat Mitchel-King, Danny Blanchett, Lewis Short, Ashley Westwood, Bartek Fogler, Joel Grant and Clayton Donaldson all left the club during the summer. The only new face to arrive at Gresty Road was rookie goalkeeper Alan Martin, who initially joined the Alex for a two-week trial after being released by Leeds. Martin is set for a place on the bench as the Railwaymen bid to ensure a losing start to Di Canio's tenure as Swindon boss.

Match Report

Dream start for Paolo Paolo Di Canio`s eagerly-anticipated start to management opened with a convincing 3-0 for Swindon over Crewe. The flamboyant Italian, who attracted many headlines during his playing days in England, is charged with the task of guiding Swindon to immediate promotion from League Two following May`s relegation. And he got his tenure off to the perfect start in front of 8,248 fans at the County Ground. Youngster Billy Bodin hit a post early on and the Wales Under-21s international was involved in the opener, which came on the stroke of half-time, having been brought down by Adam Dugdale in the penalty area. Callum Kennedy striking home the resulting spot-kick. Town skipper and Namibia international midfielder Oliver Risser doubled their advantage shortly after the hour mark with a sweet drive from 30 yards. It was left for defender Aden Flint to round off a successful afternoon for the home side when he connected with Raffa De Vita`s left-wing cross to add a third from close range.
