HT: 1-1 C.McManaman (35')
Attendance:  13,935   Referee:  P. Walton



 
Swindon set the giantkilling headlines - coming from a goal behind to beat Premier League side Wigan in a packed County Ground.



 
Callum McManaman reacts first to a penalty hitting the post to give Premier League Wigan the lead - but Alan Connell nods the Town back on level terms five minutes later, before Matt Ritchie's long range effort deflects off Paul Benson to send the County Ground into raptures - fourth tier Swindon making national headlines for the shock of the round.
