Swindon Town 1-2 Coventry City

Duckens Nazon scored a long-range winner as Coventry City came from behind to beat 10-man Swindon Town at the County Ground.

The home side started the poorly but took the lead through a spectacular goal by Luke Norris in the 20th minute.

The 24-year-old neatly controlled Kellan Gordon's cross before spinning and then smashing it into the top corner to bag his sixth goal of the season.

The Robins should have doubled their lead two minutes later when Gordon was involved again - this time finding Keshi Anderson who failed to slot home from close range.

Coventry equalised in the 32nd minute when Doyle capitalised on poor defending to tap-in Jodi Jones' cross from the right-hand side.

And then Swindon found themselves down to 10 men in the 72nd minute when James Dunne was given his marching orders for a foul on Doyle.

The Sky Blues took full advantage of the extra man just five minutes later when Nazon drilled his effort into the back of the net.
