The home side, Fleetwood Town took the lead just after the half time break when Josh Morris converted a Jamie Proctor pass.

Just ten minutes later, Morris would double the lead after Town's defence came unglued and slammed the ball past Wes Foderingham, making it look as if it would be a long day for Town.

The second goal seemed to galvanise Town as they had enjoyed most of the possession but failed to convert their chances.

Andy Williams scored his 15th goal on 71 minutes with a deflected shot.

Town fans could sigh a deep breath of relief when Louis Thompson scored on 88 minutes slotting the ball past Chris Maxwell.

Despite There being 5 minutes extra time being added, Swindon were able to hold on meaning Town sit top of League one due to Bristol City being involved in the FA Cup.
