The whole process has just been horrible. it's so slow. You can't contact anyone, they contact you. So you're just left in the dark, and unless you can afford an expensive immigration lawyer you're alone.

Bristol City have taken a giant step towards the League One title. They've beaten West Country rivals Swindon 3-0 at Ashton Gate this evening. It puts them 8 points clear of second placed Preston with just 5 games to go.

This was always going to be a tasty local derby after a highly charged affair at the County Ground in November.

Swindon had three chances to take the lead in a minute, but City keeper Frank Fielding was equal to each one.

It was the hosts who broke the deadlock. Ten minutes before half time, Kieran Agard was put through and didn't waste his chance.

Town almost went into the break level, but Ben Gladwin's shot took a deflection and hit the bar.

In the second half, Swindon's top scorer Andy Williams fired over from a good position.

Then with 10 minutes left on the clock, a killer blow for Mark Cooper's men - Joe Bryan curled a superb left footed effort into the top corner.

And with Town pushing for an equaliser, there was still time for Aaron Wilbraham to add a third.
