S.Miglioranzi (31'), S.Igoe (57')
HT: 1-3 S.Robinson (5' o.g.), L.Owusu (20'), S.Kuqi (25')
Attendance:  10,573 (3,300 away fans)   Referee:  B. Knight



 
Affected by pre-match rumours that Jimmy Davis had been killed in a car accident, Swindon have an awful start to the season, conceding three goals in the first twenty-five minutes against Sheffield Wednesday. When the team eventually gets into its stride, they come close to turning things around in an entertaining encounter.
