Carabao Cup: Swindon Town 0-1 Forest Green Rovers

Tahvon Campbell's second-half goal put Forest Green Rovers into the second round of the Carabao Cup for the first time as they beat Swindon Town.

Martin Smith almost put the hosts ahead when he hit the post early on with a shot from inside his own half.

Keshi Anderson came close to scoring for Swindon but Forest Green keeper James Montgomery saved his header.

But Campbell sent Forest Green through when he dispossessed Olly Lancashire and coolly slotted the ball home.
