Oldham Athletic 2-1 Swindon Town

Carl Winchester's stunning strike and Danny Philliskirk's header helped Oldham seal victory over Swindon.

Winchester gave Lee Johnson's team a spectacular lead, winning possession on the halfway line before firing a shot into the top corner from 25 yards out.

Oldham defender James Tarkowski tried to block Nathan Thompson's cross inside the box but could only send a looping deflection into his own net.

Philliskirk won it converting Jonathan Grounds' cross from close range.

Post-match: Swindon boss Cooper

"I thought we deserved something out of the game, especially in the second half.

"Once we got level I felt we had the initiative to go and win it.

"But there was some sloppy defending for the cross in the box and they go 2-1 up.

"We had to risk everything going forward and we missed a couple of really good chances near the end."
