Swindon have been promoted to npower League One despite going down 3-1 at Gillingham on Saturday.

Paolo Di Canio's side will have been disappointed not to have secured their own promotion - which was confirmed courtesy of Torquay's defeat - but they remain four points clear in the title race with two to play.

Swindon needed only to match Torquay's result at AFC Wimbledon to seal a return to League One a year after being relegated and just 11 months since the controversial Italian took charge at the County Ground.

Gillingham threatened to delay the party by securing a victory to improve their own play-offs hopes but Torquay's surprise 2-0 defeat was enough to spark champagne-fuelled celebrations, which for once Di Canio did approve of.
