Swindon Town Tranmere Rovers
G.Grazioli (7'), A.Gurney (86')
HT: 1-1 G.Allen (45'), J.Koumas (73')
Attendance:  6,089   Referee:  M.G. Cowburn



 
After Giuliano Grazioli pounces on a goalkeeping error to give the Town an early lead, Tranmere look to have turned the game around with two goals of their own - but a late Andy Gurney strike wins a draw for Swindon, and there is still time for Graham Allen to get sent off.
