Swindon Town 2-2 Oldham Athletic

Amari Morgan-Smith's late strike earned Oldham a point at Swindon after a hard-fought encounter at the County Ground.

Oldham led on 23 minutes through James Dayton's superb left-foot strike, but just four minutes later Jonathan Obika bundled the ball in to equalise.

Nathan Byrne threaded a pass through to substitute Andy Williams, whose powerful drive gave Swindon the lead.

But the home side's advantage also lasted just four minutes as Morgan-Smith prodded in a valuable equaliser.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"We toiled to get in front and when you're in front that late on then you really should see the game out.

"I'd give Oldham a bit of credit. They came and made it hard for us.

"We weren't at our best tonight. We didn't play with any fluency. We were kicking the ball long too many time, when we're not set up for that.

"We moved away from our principles and we saw the result of that."
