Swindon pulled off a significant upset in the Capital One Cup second round as a James Collins hat-trick helped the npower League One side claim a dramatic 4-3 extra-time victory at Stoke.

The Robins shocked their Barclays Premier League opponents in the opening period as Collins pounced upon a mistake by Potters goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen to make it 1-0 in the 27th minute and then doubled their lead by nodding in just prior to half-time.

Stoke salvaged extra-time after the break through strikes from Kenwyne Jones and Jon Walters, but Paulo Di Canio's Swindon would not be denied in the additional period, with defender Aden Flint (105) and Collins (119) netting either side of Peter Crouch's header (111) for the hosts.
