Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio felt his side were worthy winners as they secured a 3-2 victory over league leaders Rotherham.

The Millers had twice led through Alex Revell, who marked his debut with two headers either side of Matt Ritchie's leveller, but two goals from Alan Connell turned things around for the Robins to secure their first point since the opening day of the season.

Both sides ended with 10 men in a fiery encounter as Rotherham's Danny Schofield and Swindon's Alberto Comazzi saw red for second yellows.

"It's a beautiful day for the lads because they deserved to win. I told my team that Rotherham are up there (at the top) because they play good football, they are athletes and in good physical condition," he said.

"Now we are united, we know we have a group who will play well together until the end of the season and we are very close together.

"The team have done nothing yet. This was a small step but we need another two, three, four or five wins. If we can win a few more games maybe we can play with more confidence."
