Michael Flynn said that Swindon Town displayed the best and the worst of themselves in their 4-3 win over Accrington Stanley.

Swindon seemed to be out of sight as the 90 minutes came to a close as Dan Kemp's penalty, along with goals from Jake Young, Saidou Khan, and Charlie Austin saw them in a very comfortable position.

Then in second-half stoppage time, Korede Adedoyin's low drive and a brace from Brad Hills saw Town fretting over an unbelievable collapse, but they were just able to scramble over the line.

Flynn said that Swindon showed the best parts of themselves for 90 minutes and then the very worst parts of their previous displays after the end of normal time.

He said: "Football does sometimes defy explanation and I think I would have seen it all if they scored the equaliser right at the end.

"It is so typical of us in past games, but you did not see that coming across the 90 minutes, with the way we were and the way we controlled the game.

"I know they had quite a lot of shots, but most of them were from about 30 yards and were blocked.

"Then we decided to give them a bit of impetus and a helping hand and Accrington Stanley don't need an invite to do that, they are a team that never quit.

"They keep going until the end and they nearly punished us for our sloppy play.

"They had done all the things we wanted for 92 minutes and then we go and hit the self-destruct button.

"We did everything we could in the last seven minutes to throw away three points."

Flynn was pleased however that Swindon were able to earn their first away victory since a 2-1 win over Forest Green Rovers in August and said that for the bulk of the evening, his side had done everything right.

He said: "Everything we did was great. We were brave on the ball, our recovery runs, crossing, passing, movement off the ball and on the ball, taking our chances even though we missed a few.

"It was an excellent away performance for 90 minutes.

"It did nearly slip through our grasp, but it didn't. At Wrexham, we lost two points, but we played superbly, and tonight we were superb and we got the three points and that is all I am concerned about at the minute.

"We should have won plenty more away games than we have and we did our best, we have thrown them away and tonight we tried to do the same.

"It has been a positive week picking up seven points with two away games with long journeys.

"I will think about it [the near collapse] all night and all day tomorrow, I still can't believe what happened at the end.

"We got away with it tonight but there will be times if we do that again that we won't get away with it. So, we have to make sure that doesn't happen again."
