"Today, on a few occasions, we put together a nice bit of play and opened Swindon up which was good to see"

Paul Cook said the most pleasing aspect of today's victory over Swindon was the number of chances his side created.

Town beat the Robins 2-1 at The County Ground thanks to a brace from James Norwood, one of which was from the penalty spot.

Armando Dobra, Kane Vincent-Young, Troy Parrott and Flynn Downes also went close for the visitors in Wiltshire, with Norwood missing the chance to net a hat-trick when he fired his second penalty of the afternoon wide.

"We got into some really good positions today," the Town boss said.

"That's encouraging because when you create chances, you're okay with what comes. It's when we haven't created chances that we've looked lacklustre. It was certainly pleasing to see us create today.

"On a few occasions we put together a nice bit of play and opened Swindon up which was good to see. What we should have done is gone on to win the game more comfortably, but that perhaps comes with confidence.

"We let in a poor goal from our point of view and that gave Swindon a little bit of energy. Credit to Tommy Wright and his side because it's tough to get motivated when you've been relegated but they represented their club in a good way today and kept going until the final whistle. 

"We're pleased to get a win on the road, and I am pleased for the group."
