Fleetwood Town 5-1 Swindon Town

Antoni Sarcevic
Antoni Sarcevic helped Fleetwood on their way to victory over Swindon with a goal and an assist

Fleetwood lifted themselves out of League One's bottom four as they put five goals past Swindon Town.

Swindon's Adam El-Abd put the ball into his own net for Fleetwood's opener, turning in David Henen's cross.

Antoni Sarcevic's penalty doubled Fleetwood's advantage, before he set up Henen to make it 3-0.

Tarique Fosu netted the fourth before Nicky Ajose's consolation for Swindon, but Bobby Grant completed the rout with a left-footed strike from 25 yards.
