Swindon Town 4-1 Bradford City

Nathan Byrne
Nathan Byrne scored four goals over the whole of last season

Swindon's Nathan Byrne scored a 16-minute hat-trick as the Robins come back from a goal down to beat Bradford.

The visitors went ahead early on when Josh Morris struck, before Billy Clarke's poor penalty was saved.

After the break, Byrne curled in his first before his close range finish under goalkeeper Ben Williams put the hosts in the lead.

Byrne's third came after a mazy dribble and striker Jon Obika secured three points when he slotted home the fourth.
