Swindon manager Danny Wilson refused to blame Charlie Austin for his side's failure to clinch their first league win of the season after the striker's glaring late miss in the 0-0 draw at Carlisle.

Austin, whose goal fired Wilson's side into the play-off final last season, blasted the ball wildly over the crossbar with the goal at his mercy in time added on.

"In normal circumstances Charlie would take his chance, so I can't be critical," said Wilson.

"Maybe he had too much time to think about it. Of course he will be disappointed, but he'll be chomping away to make up for it next week."

Wilson was keener to praise his defence than to criticise his forwards for failing to put Carlisle to the sword in the second half.

He added: "The back four were immense. Our keeper has not had a save to make. We were difficult to break down and clean sheets make you successful.

"We had four or five great chances without finishing them off. Carlisle had a lot of corners, but we carved out the best chances.

"We're disappointed not to win it because we matched up Carlisle's formation and I thought we took control of the game in the second half."
