Read manager Ruben Selles' reaction below.

Selles on the 5-0 win

It was a good feeling. We had a team on the pitch that had a clear idea of how they want to play. It is important for us to play and do the thing we want to do, and it was a good performance from everyone.

Selles on Knibbs hat trick

Scoring goals is always important, especially for the front players. He got his goals today and hopefully, he can score more in the league, and we can have good results.

Selles on Boyce-Clarke injury

The last 24 hours has been a little chaotic on that because Joel [Pereria] got injured yesterday in the warm-up and Coniah got injured today in the warm-up to the game. It is what it is. Sometimes these things happen. David was ready to go, and we could give the debut Tom.

Selles on Holmes sub

It looks like he was tired. We need to see if more on Monday.

Selles on returning injuries

Mamadi [Camara] is close and Sam Smith is close, training with the group. They are not completely ready, hopefully, next week one or two can be available for the game.

Selles on administration rumours

Nothing new. I haven’t had any communication from the club so as far as I know there is no intention, but it can be that tomorrow is different. As far as I know, there is nothing in the administration right now.

Selles on making changes in Cups

It is a routine that we want to do because I think we have the players to do it. They are working well and wait to play. They know what they are doing. We need to develop our talented players and I think the cups are a good time to do that, and in the league. Today we have shown that we have a really good Academy and the players coming up are ready to fight for a spot.

Selles on Swindon rivalry

We know and people are always putting us in context. It was a good Tuesday night with a good environment on the pitch. Inside the stadium, it was a really healthy rivalry. There is always someone who tries to go out of the norm, but I think it was good to see our fans supporting us and being with the boys.
