Swindon promoted despite loss

Published Add your comment

Swindon were promoted to npower League One despite going down 3-1 at Gillingham on Saturday.

Paolo Di Canio's side will have been disappointed not to have secured their own promotion - which was confirmed courtesy of Torquay's defeat - but they remain four points clear in the title race with two to play.

Chris Whelpdale scored twice for Gills - who maintain a notional play-off hope of their own - with Danny Kedwell kicking off the scoring and Alan McCormack grabbing Swindon's goal.
