Swindon Town Walsall
J.Ifil (52')
HT: 0-0 D.Keates (90')
Attendance:  14,731   Referee:  M. Jones



 
Needing a point for promotion against table topping Walsall, Jerel Ifil scores an excellent diving header to put Swindon into the lead - the game surprisingly comfortable until Dean Keates' last minute wonder goal gives Walsall an equaliser. It's all smiles at the end though - the draw enough for the Town to go up in third place, and with Hartlepool losing at home to Bristol Rovers, Walsall seal the League Two title.
