Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio is happy to continue breaking records, but only if his side win the league in the process.

Town recorded their seventh consecutive win this weekend, something that hasn't happened for 25 years, but the Italian insists it will be worthless if his side aren't crowned champions.

"The winning run doesn't mean anything unless we win the league, but it means everything if we win the league," he told the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald.

"Records are good to break but they have to be a part of the overall target.

"We could win the next three games and make it 10 successive wins - that has never happened before for Swindon - but if you do not win the league and do not have silverware then it counts for little."

Swindon's next opponents are promotion rivals Shrewsbury, but Di Canio joked he is unsure whether he will be able to return to the touchline following his two-game ban.

He added: "You never know what will go on before Tuesday, maybe they (The FA) will invent a reason to put me in the stands."
