Swindon Town Northampton Town
M.Gabbiadini (5' o.g.), D.Invincibile (64')
HT: 1-0 J.Forrester (81')
Attendance:  6,585   Referee:  M.A. Cooper



 
"Gabbiadini is a horse's arse", so the song goes... and the veteran Northampton striker certainly makes an arse of himself, scoring an own goal for Swindon in the fifth minute. Sol Davis' sending off threatens the Town's lead, but Danny Invincibile doubles the advantage soon after, Swindon holding on despite Jamie Forrester's late effort.
