Swindon Town 1-0 Stevenage

Eoin Doyle's stoppage-time winner ended Swindon's four-game winless streak as the Robins beat bottom club Stevenage.

The league's top scorer rifled home as the clocked ticked over to the 90-minute mark as Swindon scraped victory.

Although the Robins did not have too much in the way of clear-cut chances, overall they dictated play but were largely frustrated by an organised Stevenage defence.

Prior to the goal, Swindon's best chance was Jerry Yates firing just wide from inside the box following Kaiyne Woolery's pass.

Anthony Grant later headed over for the hosts and Dion Donohue had a volley saved following some pinball in the Stevenage box.

The visitors did occasionally threaten themselves with substitute Dean Parrett being their best outlet for chances.

The former Swindon loanee could only shoot straight at Steven Benda from the edge of the box and later he dinked an effort over Benda but the ball bounced away from danger.
