Rochdale 2-2 Swindon Town

Swindon had two players sent off but still gained a point at Rochdale.

The Robins took a 2-0 lead when Louis Thompson added to Jon Obika's opener, and their debutant keeper Will Henry saved Ian Henderson's penalty.

Jamie Allen got one back for Rochdale from 25 yards just before half-time, and Thompson was dismissed for a second bookable offence after 58 minutes.

Matty Lund's header made it 2-2, but Swindon held on despite an 88th-minute red card for Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill.
