Swindon Town AFC Bournemouth

HT: 0-1 W.Elliott (1'), J.Hayter (56'), M.Mills (74')
Attendance:  8,275 (1,208 away fans)   Referee:  E. Evans



 
After six games undefeated, Swindon go into the game with the Cherries full of confidence, knowing that a win would see the Town leapfrog them and into the play-off positions. Billed as the most important game of the season, the Town don't turn up, and are humbled on their own ground by three goals to nil.
