Coventry City 1-2 Swindon Town

Michael Smith's injury-time winner kept Swindon's League One play-offs hopes alive with victory at Coventry.

The away side took the lead on eight minutes when poor City defending left Tottenham-loanee Alex Pritchard unmarked to fire in from 12 yards out.

Coventry drew level just before the break when John Fleck beat two players and scored from the edge of the area.

But Smith headed the winner in the third minute of added time after Jay McEveley's cross from the right.

The result leaves Swindon just four points off the play-offs, while Coventry remain without a win in their last four games.

Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:

Post-match: Swindon manager Cooper

"[It's] a fantastic way to win a game. I think on the balance of play, probably what we deserved.

"I thought first half we totally dominated the game. We bossed the possession against a really good football team.

"They turned it into more of a scrap in the second half, they tried to press us a little bit higher.

"Michael Smith runs 90 yards and wins the ball back in the bottom corner, 30 seconds later he's heading it in the back of the net."
