GOALS from Lee Peacock, Billy Bodin and Charlie Austin gave Swindon's reserves a comfortable 3-0 win away at Salisbury City tonight.

Town opened the scoring on 19 minutes when James Richards' cross in from the left was turned goalwards by Peacock.

It seemed easy for keeper Grant Porter, but the Salisbury stopper had a moment of madness, letting the ball squirm through his hands and into the back of the net.

In the 26th minute Salisbury midfielder Patrick Cox forced Jakub Jesionkowski into a save low down at his near post with a 25-yard drive.

But the visitors were soon back on the attack and Charlie Austin headed just wide on 33 minutes after Nathan Thompson had sent a long ball into the box.

They should have made it two shortly before half-time. Swindon broke at pace with Craig Easton playing in Mark Hartman, but the youngster slipped his shot just past the far upright.

The advantage was doubled a minute before the break, however, when Peacock's deep cross was headed down by Austin, and with the Salisbury defence failing to clear, Billy Bodin fired home from close range.

In the opening stages of the second half Peacock went close for Town, while Luke Riddick saw his rising drive clear the bar for the hosts.

And Swindon made it 3-0 in the 77th minute when Peacock flicked on a corner for Austin to nod home from a couple of yards.
