SWINDON Town's preparations for the upcoming League One season continued with a second win over non-league opposition in as many days.

First half strikes from Michael Smith and Massimo Luongo and a late goal from trialist Khalil Lambin saw Mark Cooper's men beat near neighbours Swindon Supermarine 3-0 at the Webb's Wood Stadium this afternoon.

Town, who beat Marine's Southern League rivals Yate Town 2-0 on Friday night, fielded a near full-strength line-up in the first half before shuffling the pack for the second period, with a host of trialists bidding to impress Cooper and first-choice goalkeeper Wes Foderingham playing the full 90 minutes.

Smith's close-range strike and Luongo's classy side-foot finish put Town well on their way to victory, with Ivorian striker Lambin taking advantage of a mix-up in the home defence to score Swindon's third late on.

“It was another good work-out for us. It's what we want – another step up with the fitness,” said Town chief Cooper.

“I felt we controlled the game in the first half and created a lot of chances. Then, in the second half, we changed it around with a couple of trialists and still created the same amount of chances, so I'm pleased with what I saw today.”
