Williams relieved but Robbo hits out...
SWINDON boss Luke Williams wore a broad smile after his side ended a run of three straight defeats with a comprehensive win at Oldham.
The Robins struck a goal in each half to end their worrying run of form in a game in which they dominated.
Relieved boss Williams said: “I’m really pleased for everyone with this result.
“Our away form hasn’t been too great in recent weeks and months, and to be honest a few things have been going against us.
“But everything seems to work in our favour here and I thought we were excellent value for the three points.
“We were able to take the lead and really take control of the game. We played the game on our terms, and when we do that we can be a match for anyone.
“Not a lot has changed in terms of the personnel and the way we’ve been playing.
“But don’t forget we’ve got an excellent group of players here and I’ve been hurting for them these last three games.”
Swindon bossed the first period at Boundary Park and deservedly led at the interval.
Jonathan Obika struck after 18 minutes, slotting home his second goal of the season from 15 yards after meeting a neat through ball from Johnny Goddard. Oldham’s best chance came when Josh Law curled a 25-yard freekick narrowly wide.
Swindon doubled their lead courtesy of a neatly-taken goal in the 55th minute.
Brandon Ormonde Ottewill clipped a shot expertly past Connor Ripley following a cutback from the impressive Goddard.
It could have been worse for the hosts, but skipper Peter Clarke hacked an effort from Raphael Rossi-Branco off the line.
Oldham manager Stephen Robinson slammed his players after his side slipped into the League One drop zone.
The hosts have now scored only four goals in their nine league games, and after this latest defeat, changes are promised for Tuesday’s toughlooking trip to Charlton.
Robinson said: “It’s really disappointing, and that’s putting it mildly.
“There’s no hiding away from it, that was as poor as we’ve been since I joined the club.
“Nine players just didn’t show up, and that is not what you need at his level of football.
“(Goalkeeper) Connor Ripley was magnificent again and Peter Clarke continued to set an example, but not the rest.”
