NEW BEATS OLD AS ROBINS FIRE
THE newest League One manager out-gunned the oldest in an entertaining clash at the County Ground.
Luke Williams was in charge of the Robins for the first time after Martin Ling stepped down.
And he could well have regretted his decision to make the step up in the opening exchanges as Southend raced ahead.
But Swindon stuck to their guns and, playing out from the back, were able to fight back to secure the three points.
Nicky Ajose and Jonathan Obika both bagged doubles to secure victory for the Robins and make it a miserable afternoon for Shrimpers boss Phil Brown.
His side started the season well but have now begun to stutter after suffering three defeats in a row.
