Notts County 1-2 Swindon Town

Jamie Turley's late own goal relieved some of the pressure on Swindon boss Phil Brown as the Robins snatched victory at Notts County.

The home side had roared out of the blocks with Kane Hemmings forcing a save from Lawrence Vigouroux after only 30 seconds.

That set the tone for an impressive first-half display from Harry Kewell's side, who created numerous chances with Enzio Boldewijn, Matt Tootle and Lewis Alessandra all going close.

They almost paid a heavy price for those misses as Elliott Ward was required to make a brilliant block to deny Marc Richards a certain goal.

But the Magpies' breakthrough eventually arrived just before half-time when Cedric Evina's brilliant cross was guided in by Hemmings with help of the woodwork.

But Steven Alzate came off the bench to equalise for the Robins when he teased his way to the edge of the box before firing low past Ross Fitzsimons.

And then Matt Taylor's cross was diverted into his own net by Turley as the Robins sealed an important victory.
