Referee:

Swindon Town put their embargo worries behind them to put on a spirited performance Tuesday night at Yeovil Town in front of the Sky cameras.

Swindon boss Kevin Macdonald elected to choose the same starting XI as the match against Brentford last week albeit with Adam Rooney playing as the loan striker up front.

Neither side created much in the first half as both teams struggled to play on what could be the worst pitch in League One which cut up every time a player turned on it.

Swindon would get their breakthrough in the second half when Marek Stech the Yeovil keeper would trip Gary Roberts in the box. The referee Stroud had no hesitation pointing to the spot.

Adam Rooney calmly stood up and slammed the ball in the left corner to give the visitors a 1-0 advantage.

Despite the best efforts of the Yeovil fans with their tinpot drum and cow bell, they were unable to spur their men on apart from one decent breakaway which was brilliantly blocked by Nathan Thompson.

The referee Stroud would indicate a ridiculous 5 minutes added time but it didn't matter as James Collins who had earlier come on for Simon Ferry scored Town's second goal right on the final whistle.

Swindon's win now sees them sit third on the League One table on 66 points, 3 behind leaders Doncaster Rovers.

Star Player

Nathan Thompson - Absolutely immense, get him on a long term contract NOW!!
