Croatian defender Filip Benković has made three appearances for Bristol City.

Efforts from Jerry Yates and Diallang Jaiyesimi, plus an own goal from Luke Hendrie, put Richie Wellens' side out of reach before James Hanson's consolation strike at the County Ground.

As a result, Swindon remain atop of the fourth tier on 66 points, two clear of Crewe Alexandra and three above Exeter City, after winning 20 of their 34 games so far this season.

In France, midfielder Adrien Silva and striker Islam Slimani starred as Leonardo Jardim's AS Monaco were held to a 1-1 draw by Dijon at Stade Gaston-Gerard in Ligue 1 on Saturday.
