Sky Bet League 1: Matchday 26 review

9 January 2016

Managerless Swindon Town came from two goals down to beat Southend United 4-2 at the County Ground on Matchday 26 in Sky Bet League 1.

A debut goal from Tyrone Barnett and an Adam Thompson header put the visitors 2-0 up inside 13 minutes, but Swindon responded to make it level the at the break, courtesy of strikes from Nicky Ajose and Jonathan Obika.

And it was those two names who fired the Robins to victory in the second half, each completing a brace to secure Swindon’s first win of 2016.

RESULT OF THE DAY: Having trailed 2-0 inside 13 mins, @Official_STFC turned it around to beat @SUFCRootsHall 4-2.

Millwall moved up to seventh in the table at Southend’s expense, following their 2-1 victory at Oldham Athletic.

With the scores locked at 1-1 late in the game, Steve Morison stepped up to grab all three points for the Lions.

Port Vale picked up their second consecutive league triumph, and moved within four points of the Play-Off places after AJ Leitch-Smith netted the only goal in a 1-0 win at Blackpool.

Chesterfield continued their good form under new boss Danny Wilson, seeing off Rochdale 3-2 at Spotland to make it back-to-back victories for the Spireites.
