Swindon Town 2-2 Colchester United

Swindon had to be content with a draw, with goals from Rhys Healey and Gavin Massey earning Colchester a point.

Healey saw an shot cleared off the line before Michael Smith put Swindon ahead, finding the net from 10 yards.

Healey levelled after turning into space in the penalty area and firing a shot past Wes Foderingham.

Smith converted Massimo Luongo's cross to put Swindon 2-1 up but the U's equalised when Massey turned the ball home after Swindon should have cleared.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"I think if you look at the chances we've missed again we should win.

"We've given away two goals again at home, we've got three 19-year-old boys playing centre-back and they're going to make mistakes.

"We're 1-0 up at half-time and within a minute of the re-start it's 1-1. That shouldn't happen.

"We've got some work to do with the young boys."
