Match ends, Swindon Town 1, Fleetwood Town 0.
Swindon snatched a late win over Fleetwood Town to record their fourth straight win.
Swindon were effective on the break early on, before Fleetwood dropped deeper to nullify the hosts' attacking threat in a first half of few chances.
Jonathan Obika and Massimo Luongo went close in the second period as the hosts dominated a lacklustre Fleetwood.
Substitute Ben Gladwin struck late with a bullet header from close range, as Swindon closed the gap to Bristol City.
Swindon sit second in the league, and trail by a single point to leaders City.
Swindon Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Wiltshire:
"We had to be very patient because Fleetwood made their intentions perfectly clear from the start and to try and get away with a point.
"We had to concentrate for the whole game and make sure we didn't get caught on the break.
"We kept our discipline, the chances started to come late in the game.
"I thought we looked a really good team at times."
