Despite the crowd calling for McMahon's head, and amid reports that the Town are 3.5m in debt - Swindon make an incredible start to the local derby, scoring three in the first ten minutes. City hit back in the second half though - netting twice, but the Town hold on despite having two players sent off and having their woodwork hit twice.
