Kuffour: Opened scoring

Bristol Rovers claimed their first away win in 11 attempts as they comprehensively beat Swindon 4-0.

Swindon dominated the first 20 minutes but the game changed when Jo Kuffour broke away in the 24th minute to float the ball over David Lucas from a difficult angle to put Rovers ahead.

With more self-belief the visitors stepped up their game and when Stuart Campbell's corner was not cleared, Paul Heffernan was allowed to turn well and place the ball into the bottom left-hand corner to double the lead in the 39th minute.

Swindon's woes were compounded after 45 minutes when a free-kick conceded for a needless handball was brilliantly hit home into the top corner by Chris Lines to make it 3-0 at the interval.

Jeff Hughes made it 4-0 after 61 minutes when Lucas misjudged a cross and Hughes prodded home from two yards.

Billy Paynter saw his header rebound off the bar late on and either side might have added to the scoreline but Rovers left the County Ground good value for their win.
