Swindon Town 4-2 Southend United

Jonathan Obika
Jonathan Obika scored his sixth and seventh league goals of the season against Southend

Swindon produced a stunning comeback from 2-0 down to take all three points against Southend in League One.

The Shrimpers took the lead through Tyrone Barnett's strike from outside the box before Adam Thompson's header doubled the lead shortly after.

Swindon responded with Nicky Ajose thumping in from close range before Jonathan Obika's close-range finish levelled the scores before half-time.

And two counter-attacking goals from Obika and Ajose capped the comeback.
