Sky Bet League 1 round-up

3 January 2015

Louis Thompson's late goal fired Swindon Town to the top of Sky Bet League 1 as they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Fleetwood Town.

A point was enough to take Town above Bristol City, who were playing in the FA Cup, and they were gifted the chance to go ahead after 13 minutes when Stephen Jordan fouled John Swift in the area.

But striker Michael Smith saw his spot-kick saved by Fleetwood keeper Chris Maxwell, and the hosts took control with two goals early in the second half from Josh Morris.

However, in-form Andy Williams pulled a goal back before Thompson tucked in Ben Gladwin's cross two minutes from time.

A wonder-strike from Jim O'Brien helped Coventry City to a 2-0 win at Midlands rivals Walsall.

Richard O'Donnell had already saved a penalty from City's Marcus Tudgay but he was beaten by O'Brien's 30-yard strike in the sixth minute.

Tudgay made amends for his earlier miss by clinching the points with three minutes remaining.

Colin Daniel's stoppage-time goal gave Port Vale a 2-1 win over managerless Gillingham.

Cody McDonald had cancelled out Ben Williamson's early strike but Daniel tucked in Mark Marshall's pass in the 93rd minute to condemn the Gills to defeat.
