Swindon Town 1-1 Grimsby Town

Luke Hendrie's 76th-minute header earned 10-man Grimsby a 1-1 draw at Swindon.

Hendrie quickly cancelled out Theo Robinson's opener after the game exploded to life in the 66th minute.

Ludvig Ohman was sent off after he barged over Kaiyne Woolery to pick up his second yellow card, leaving the visitors with 24 minutes to hold on for a point.

But eight minutes later, Swindon took the lead as Robinson scored for the second game running. He tapped in from close range after his initial header was saved by James McKeown.

The Mariners quickly responded, though, with Hendrie heading in a 76th-minute equaliser following an excellent cross from the left by Elliot Embleton.

Earlier, Woolery had gone close twice in a goalless first half. He almost opened the scoring in the first couple of minutes, but his powerful drive was palmed away by McKeown.

Woolery was denied again in stoppage time when he was one-on-one with McKeown, but instead of shooting he opted to try and round the goalkeeper and Grimsby recovered.

Grimsby's Kristian Dennis had a chance to win it late on, but only managed to shoot over when through on goal.

The result leaves the two teams locked on 47 points, seven adrift of the play-off places.
