Mohamed Eisa at the double as Cheltenham down Swindon

Jake Andrews' stunning free-kick and a brace from Mohamed Eisa condemned Matt Taylor to a losing start as Swindon interim manager, as Cheltenham beat the play-off hopefuls 3-0 at the County Ground.
Luke Norris squandered a good chance for the hosts early on when he had time to bring down Taylor's corner and fire a shot towards goal, which was blocked by Andrews.
Cheltenham grew into the game, and felt they should have had a penalty when Kevin Dawson fell after a heavy challenge by Taylor, but their protests were waved away by referee Tom Nield.
The visitors then went ahead when Andrews' free-kick flew over the wall and past keeper Stuart Moore into the top left corner.
Cheltenham doubled their lead four minutes into the second half through top scorer Mohamed Eisa, who ran onto Taylor Moore's long ball and poked a shot past Moore.
The Swindon keeper made a good save to deny Gary Johnson's men a third, and Marc Richards saw a tame effort saved by Scott Flinders down the other end.
Cheltenham made the result safe with 20 minutes to play as substitute Oluwasanmi Odelusi ran the length of the field with the ball before squaring it to Eisa, and the striker clinically fired home for his 20th goal of the season.
