Doncaster Rovers 1-2 Swindon Town

Jon Obika scored an injury-time winner as promotion-chasing Swindon came from behind to win at Doncaster.

Curtis Main put the hosts ahead in the first half when he turned the ball home at the near post.

But Swindon levelled through Michael Smith's penalty, after Ben Gladwin was felled by Dean Furman.

And a sublime left-footed finish from Obika ended his two-month wait for a goal and kept Swindon in touch with second-placed Preston.

Doncaster slipped to 12th after back-to-back defeats.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

"Obviously we're under pressure because we have to keep winning. The other teams keep winning and they're in front of us.

"There's immense pressure on the players and for a young group to bounce back with three wins shows true character.

"I'm ever so proud of them. They were tremendous again tonight. It's been a pleasing evening and the three points are key."
