Match Preview

Robins still without Flint Swindon will continue to be without injured defender Aden Flint for the npower League Two clash with Burton on Tuesday. Flint has been sidelined for five weeks with a groin injury which was originally expected to keep the 22-year-old out of action for the rest of the season. A specialist has since suggested the towering centre-back could return for the Robins before the end of the term, but the visit of the Brewers comes too soon. Manager Paolo Di Canio will also be unable to call on forward Billy Bodin. The youngster, who has netted twice in his last four appearances, is away on international duty with Wales Under-21s. Otherwise, Di Canio has no new injury or suspension worries as he looks to guide his side to a remarkable 10th successive league victory. Burton boss Paul Peschisolido has hinted he could make sweeping changes to the team for the trip to in-form Swindon. Peschisolido was frustrated by his side's performance at Cheltenham on Saturday as Albion slipped to a fifth loss in eight matches. "We've got four or five players who didn't make the bench on Saturday and we've got players on the bench who have been desperate for opportunities," Peschisolido said. "I've been pretty consistent with the squad but we haven't won in nine games now and maybe it's time to start looking elsewhere. "We've still got a relatively big squad, so we've still got options which we'll have a look at and hopefully put together a team that's going to be far more competitive than it was against Cheltenham." Defenders Andy Corbett and Tony James, midfielders Cleveland Taylor, Jimmy Phillips and Jacques Maghoma and striker Justin Richards are all options for Peschisolido. Patrick Ada will serve a one-match suspension after he was sent off on his debut on Saturday, while striker Billy Kee (groin) suffered another injury setback at Whaddon Road and looks set to miss out.

Match Report

Robins record reaches double figures Paul Benson scored his 100th career goal as Swindon extended their club record winning sequence to 10 games with a 2-0 victory at home to Burton. In-form Benson bagged for the fifth time in six matches to help Paolo Di Canio's side move a step closer to promotion to League One. Swindon dominated much of the game but took until the 53rd minute to take the lead through half-time substitute Ronan Murray. This time Benson turned provider by flicking on Matt Ritchie's cross for Murray to scramble home from close range. It was game over just five minutes later when Luke Rooney's low cross was smashed past Ross Atkins by Benson. The only negative for Di Canio's table-toppers was midfielder Jon Smith hobbling off with a head injury after only 28 minutes. The win would have been by a greater margin but for Burton full-back Callum Driver clearing Benson's effort off the line. Ritchie and Paul Caddis also came close for the hosts as the Brewers' poor run continued.
