Anton Rodgers' free-kick earned Swindon a point against Bury after the Robins came back from a two-goal deficit.

Joe Riley's cross found the head of Tom Pope to put the Shakers 1-0 up, before Leon Clarke won and missed a penalty.

Danny Mayor's shot from the edge of the box curled into the corner to double Bury's lead shortly after the break.

Swindon clawed a goal back through Fabien Robert before Rogers' thunderous free-kick found the top right-hand corner to level the score.

Bury manager David Flitcroft told BBC Radio Manchester: "For 65-70 minutes we were just incredible - the way that we ran them down, the way we passed the ball and the way that we hurt them. Then we sort of stopped doing that.

"I've had to make two substitutions due to injuries. It's not a regret but I've certainly got Tuesday in mind.

"Kelvin Etuhu (hamstring) is the best defensive midfield player in the league. He's outstanding in what he does and we did miss him in the centre of the pitch where they had real legs and energy.

"Danny Mayor is a match winner, an incredible player, and again I've got to protect him. The substitutions enhanced what they did."
