Di Canio delighted as his Swindon side do 'an amazing job' at Stevenage
Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio hailed his side as they ran riot away to League One high-fliers Stevenage.
The Robins were too hot to handle at Broadhall Way as they put four goals past the hapless hosts.
Di Canio's charges could even have won by more had Tommy Miller not seen his penalty saved by Borough goalkeeper Steve Arnold.
"It was a good performance, we needed that," admitted Di Canio. "I'm happy we've got the points, but, as always, we can improve. Overall we did an amazing job. Stevenage are a very strong side and we were too good for them.

"We've done well against a side who are right up there in the league, but we did that against MK Dons, Stoke and Brighton. We've shown what we can do.
"Even the small details can make the difference. I thought we defended very well and didn't give them many opportunities. That was pleasing."
The Italian made a few changes with Miller only brought in because of Archibald-Henville's misfortune at having missed out just before kick-off.
Di Vita got the show on the road with a clinical strike in the 17th minute after some good work from Matt Ritchie.
It was Di Vita's second goal in as many games and the visitors soon doubled their advantage when winger Ritchie got on the scoresheet himself with a sweet low strike through a crowd of players.
Alan McCormack was sent sprawling after a clumsy challenge from Anthony Grant, but Miller's spot-kick was superbly saved by Arnold.
Academy graduate Miles Storey scored his first senior goal seven minutes before the break in his first start for the Robins. He latched on to a Ritchie cross and headed in.
Adam Rooney added the icing on the cake with a clinical finish shortly after the hour mark, having latched on to John Bostock's inch-perfect pass.
