Adam turned in a low ball from David Henen from the right into his own net to score the game’s first goal of the night.
Sarcevic converted a penalty in the 55th minute, before David Henen got on the scoresheet himself in the 64th minute.
Tarique Fosu netted the fourth before Nicky Ajose’s consolation for Swindon, but Bobby Grant completed the rout with a left-footed strike from 25 yards.
To add insult to injury, Adam El-Abd was booked in the 88th minute.
Swindon are in the relegation zone in League One, having collected 16 points from 18 games. They play Walsall next at home in their journey to stay up this season.
