Swindon Town Huddersfield Town
M.Walters (28'), P.Thorne (32', 47', 48'), W.Allison (34'), K.Horlock (41')
HT: 4-0
Attendance:  7,724    



 
With the Town in mid-table and the Terriers in the play-off positions before the start of the game, no-one was expecting Swindon to run riot - and after the Town score four in the first half, Kevin Horlock shows he is as surprised as everyone else, pretending to faint in his goal celebration! Peter Thorne scores two more in the first three minutes of the second half, securing his hat-trick, and a convincing victory for the Town.
