Crewe slipped to the bottom of League One as Swindon came from behind to claim all three points.

Adam King put the hosts ahead with a low left-footed strike from 22 yards out.

But Tom Smith rifled home from the edge of the area, before Wes Thomas spun and hit a shot into the roof of the net to turn the game around for Swindon.

The visitors wrapped up the win with Nicky Ajose firing high into the net after a counter attack.
