Walsall 1-1 Swindon Town

Kieron Morris
Kieron Morris' goal was only his second of the season

Substitute Kieron Morris scored three minutes after coming on to earn League One promotion-chasers Walsall a point at home against Swindon.

The visitors had taken the lead when Michael Doughty picked up a rebound to fire under keeper Neil Etheridge.

But Morris cut inside from the right to drill home a left-footed strike.

With a game in hand, Walsall remain three points behind second-placed Burton, after their 1-1 draw with leaders Wigan at the Pirelli Stadium.
