Swindon Town 1-0 Peterborough United

Andy Williams
Striker Andy Williams was loaned out to Yeovil in the 2013-14 season

Jermaine Hylton's first Swindon goal kept intact their slim hopes of automatic promotion with a win over play-off hopefuls Peterborough.

The Robins substitute, signed from non-league Redditch United in January, scored the decisive goal following an exchange of passes between Jon Obika, John Swift and Harry Toffolo.

Andy Williams had earlier hit the bar for Swindon after a disputed penalty.

Marcus Maddison went closest to scoring for Posh in the second half.

Swindon are fourth in the table, needing one more win from their final six games to guarantee a play-off spot at the very least.

Peterborough are seven points adrift of the top six with just four games left.
