Swindon Town Forest Green Rovers

HT: 0-1 M.Stevens (5'), E.Adams (50')
Attendance:  9,257   Referee:  C. Hicks



 
Former boss Mark Cooper sets his side up to disrupt the Town's passing style - scoring early in each half and getting the rub of the green with the woodwork and some refereeing decisions, his side's dogged performance is rewarded with their first win in nine, to knock the Town off top spot in the table.
