Robins stage late show: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Two goals in the last five minutes rescued Swindon from what seemed a certain defeat as they earned a 3-3 draw in a pulsating game.

Swindon started brightly and took the lead through Charlie Austin with his seventh goal of the season and the same player hit a post soon after.

Yeovil began their reply in first-half stoppage time with a 35-yard free-kick by Gavin Williams that flew low through the defensive wall, and they dominated the early stages of the second half.

They took the lead after 49 minutes when Nathan Jones set up a move which was finished by Dean Bowditch and in the 61st minute Bowditch got another when Nathan Jones put him through.

It looked all over but after 87 minutes Sean Morrison scored from a right-wing cross by Michael Rose and a minute later substitute Jon-Paul McGovern thumped in an unstoppable 25-yarder past Yeovil goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts, who was called in to action for the first time in five years when Stephen Henderson was injured.
