Peterborough United V. Swindon Town
It wasn't the happiest night to be a Swindon Town fan but going into the game, most Swindon fans would have happily taken the 1-1 draw which ended up being the final result.

Paul Sturrock Match Reaction
"I thought Peterborough did very well. They went out to impress the new manager and the squad that they have belies their league possession.
"We lost Andy Nicholas with concussion at half-time so the back four was a little unsettled in the second period. It looked weird and wonderful shape wise at times, but the key is to get the ball in the box and we managed that.
"Our final cross let us down because we got in some great positions in the first half. My team are learning how to grind out results and we did that in the end."
"Hopefully we will be able to add to the squad. There maybe one permanent addition and one loan move coming in - but we shall see what comes by the end of tomorrow. One of them is very close to a move and the other will be touch and go whether we make it by the deadline,"
Darren Ferguson Match Reaction
'We have played Lincoln and Swindon over the last few days, sides that are in the automatic promotion places and held our own and we should really have collected four points from those matches. The lads are starting to get their self-belief back and we just need a bit of good fortune.
'I know I keep going on about it, but we just need that bit of luck and a win and when that happens, I am confident we can go on a good run of results. The lads remain confident and we now look forward to travelling to Bristol Rovers this weekend,' Ferguson said. Guy Branston missed the game due to a calf strain, but is expected to be fit for the trip to the Memorial Stadium.
