Swindon boss Danny Wilson expressed his disappointment at his side`s defending in the 2-2 draw at Hartlepool.

Goals from Thomas Dossevi and Charlie Austin gave the Robins their first point of the season after they had fallen 2-0 behind but Wilson still wants more.

He said: "We had to do something to come back into it. We gave away two abysmal goals - under no pressure at all and it cost it. We've conceded six goals this season and all are like that.

"In the first half we set up to cause them problems, but it didn't happen because we found ourselves under pressure.

"Our decision making was wrong, it's an area we have to work on. People have to be more dominant - the back four and goalkeeper - they need more consistency.

"But in the second half they caused us no problems at all, you could see the difference. We are on the board now, they have had a fantastic start and had a great win against Sheffield United in midweek and this was a good result for us - even better at two down."
