Nothing he could do about the goals and produced an excellent save from Weimann in the first half. His kicking was poor at times.
Struggled with the power of Benteke and pace of Agbonlahor and overwhelmed by with the higher quality of attacking talent.
Run ragged at fullback throughout the match by the Villa forwards, and offered little going forward.
Struggled defensively with Villa's pace on the counter and didn't produce enough going forward.
Beaten in the air by Benteke for the opening goal, the Robins captain struggled in defence.
Very quiet in midfield and, like Miller, struggled to impose himself on the game.
Couldn't cope with a Villa midfield on fine form, and often gave the ball away.
Worked hard to put Lowton under pressure and caused the fullback some problems. Should have scored in the second half with a far post header.
Very lively on the left, and always managed to find space to deliver some dangerous balls into the Villa box.
Won several aerial battles and almost grabbed a goal but for Lowton's goal line clearance.
Showed plenty of fight up front but was isolated for large parts of the game.
Struggled at times on his return to the side, and made to look quite silly by Miles Storey's flicked equaliser.
Like his goalkeeper, was rather embarrassed by Storey's second goal, but looked comfortable throughout the match.
Set up the winner with an excellent cross for Benteke and put in a solid performance.
Made a crucial clearance off the line early on and linked up well with the midfield.
Came off after 30 minutes with a knee injury and had not yet been tested by the Swindon attack
K. El Ahmadi
Confident and assured, and made an excellent tackle to deny Paul Benson. The extra time allowed in midfield by Swindon was very helpful.
A dominant performance from the midfielder. He spread the ball around with ease and was instrumental in the second goal.
Gave the ball away a few times in midfield but produced a solid performance, supporting Ireland well.
Overshadowed somewhat by Stephen Ireland, but played a solid supporting role.
Drifted in and out of the game, but his strike was top drawer and at the time looked to have put Villa out of sight.
Two superb goals, demonstrating his power and quality. Not involved all the time as the midfield ran the show, but did the job when necessary.
