Swindon striker Nicky Ajose
Nicky Ajose has scored five goals in his last two League One appearances

Nicky Ajose scored a hat-trick as Swindon beat Blackpool in a game of five goals at the County Ground.

The former Manchester United trainee netted the winner two minutes from time after earlier strikes in either half.

Tom Aldred had headed Blackpool into an early lead before Ajose levelled for the hosts 15 minutes later.

Ajose's close-range second gave them the lead on the hour, but Danny Philliskirk levelled from the spot after Clark Robertson was fouled.
