Peterborough United 1-2 Swindon Town

Jonathan Obika
Obika has now scored six league goals this season

Goals from Andy Williams and Jonathan Obika saw Swindon defeat Peterborough and move to within one point of League One leaders Bristol City.

Williams fired the visitors ahead with a low finish off the inside of a post.

The Robins doubled their advantage two minutes after the restart, as one-time Posh loanee Obika dived to head in a Ben Gladwin free-kick.

Posh hit the bar late on but Joe Newell did halve the deficit with a fine 20-yard strike in stoppage time.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

Cooper on Peterborough v Swindon

"First half (we were) very good, second half very poor. Once we got the second goal we tried to see the game out instead of playing properly.

"You have to be professional, we didn't do that.

"We dominated the game (in the first half), we passed the ball really well, created numerous chances.

"That's given us food for thought."
