An equaliser from James Collins ensured Swindon came from two goals down to draw against Coventry City.

On-loan Nottingham Forest striker David McGoldrick put the Sky Blues 2-0 up at the break after he flicked in John Fleck's cross and rifled in his second.

Gary Roberts reduced the arrears on 77 minutes, volleying in from close range from Alan Navarro's corner.

And Collins completed the turnaround when he then powered in Jay McEveley's centre to earn the Robins a point.

Despite surrendering a two-goal lead, Coventry are now unbeaten in four league games under new boss Mark Robins.

Meanwhile, Paolo Di Canio's Swindon find themselves in a League One play-off position.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Swindon boss Paolo Di Canio told BBC Wiltshire:

"I'm very happy with the reaction but we dominated the game.

"They arrived in the first half three times in our box, (and scored) two goals.

"(We were in their box) 32 times and we didn't score. We need a top striker.

"We have to do more."

Sky Blues manager Mark Robins told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire:

"We didn't sustain our performance for the 90 minutes. We've got plenty of work to do. There's some good stuff, but some things that need working on.

"We've got two goals today where we've worked on it. We conceded two goals where we should have done better.

"It's another draw and we'll take it, but it could have been a win. In the first half we were in total control and we need to turn those draws into wins.

"A few weeks ago we were talking about turning losses into draws. But I can't help be disappointed because there's so much more to give from the players, and we just don't sustain it."
