Despite being depleted, Swindon showed no signs of weakness as they clinched an emphatic win against Leominster – a win which keeps them in fourth place in the table.

Phil Scarisbrick scored the opening goal when he converted a chance at the back post.

Swindon’s lead was doubled by Lentschner, who after missing a couple of earlier opportunities to score, got on the scoresheet with a tidy finish.

Lentschner then added his second as Swindon closed the first half three goals to the good.

Ian Hazell enjoyed a fine debut in the absence of Tom Goldsmith while Pete Gilbert and Thomas Hunt were also in form.

Swindon took their foot off the gas early in the second half which brought veteran goalkeeper Alan Gough into action with a string of fine saves.

Lentschner though was the man of the moment and soon added another two goals to effectively end the contest.

Andy McGreggor then added a goal, assisted by Luke Cejer and the latter then set up Nathan Richards to score an excellent effort.

The prolific Lentschner added two more goals to take his tally to six for the day and complete a superb win for Swindon.

Captain Cejer reflected on the first half of the season, saying: “Last season we were way off the pace at this point, and we still managed to drag ourselves into contention with our performance in the second half of the season.

“This season, we’re in good shape, only losing once out of 11 fixtures.”
