Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper praised his side's energy and desire in their 2-1 triumph away to Tranmere on Tuesday. The Robins battled to victory with goals from Alex Smith and Miles Storey. Cooper said: "We showed desire, energy and no small matter of good football. Put those three together and you can win the game. We were lackadaisical in the first half and there were a few choice words at half-time – they needed to be better with the ball and stop giving Tranmere encouragement. Apart from the opening minutes of the second half, I thought we controlled the possession."
