Robins end on high note

Swindon ended a disappointing season on a bright note with a 2-0 victory at Tranmere.It was only a third win of the year for the relegated side, who took a 10th-minute lead with their first chance when Jean-Francois Lecsinel netted from close range following a Michael Rose corner.Rovers should have been level three minutes later but Dale Jennings missed an open goal after goalkeeper Phil Smith saved from Lucas Akins.It needed an excellent one-handed save by Tony Warner to prevent Billy Bodin doubling the Town lead after 20 minutes.Bodin was just wide with two more excellent efforts before Michael Timlin put Swindon 2-0 in front after 38 minutes with a fine 25-yard strike after a long clearance.Aaron Cresswell was unlucky to see a long-range free-kick rebound off a post soon after the break as Tranmere looked to get back in contention. Adam McGurk just missed the target before Cresswell brought a good stop from Smith.
