Pennock said: “With the three goals we conceded, it’s the same old stuff isn’t it? We’re saying it every week. Goals are going in.

“It is not just (this one game) and since I have been here. I have seen other goals we have conceded, it has been like it all season, we just have to get out of it because if we don’t we will be in trouble.”

On a wet and windy night, the Gills went ahead but Swindon’s dominance paid off with three second-half goals.

Pennock said: “We had a good start and Cody (McDonald) scored a very good goal but that was the first and last time we got down the side of them, with a bit of quality.

“It was very windy and blustery and everything else but they used it better than us.

“When this (Swindon) team goes ahead they are very hard to play against because they do play the kind of football where it is very hard to get it back.

“The players are bitterly disappointed and know that Swindon were better than us. Sometimes you have to put your hand up. We didn’t play that well.”
