Gareth Bale fired us into a 15th-minute lead at the County Ground and we were denied time after time by Swindon goalkeeper Wes Foderingham in the first half. Jermain Defoe also struck the crossbar.

Andre Villas-Boas made 10 changes for the second half - only Gylfi Sigurdsson remained, and played 60 minutes - and with fewer chances after the break, Swindon edged back into it. Massimo Luongo, one of three of our players on loan at the Robins with Grant Hall and Alex Pritchard, forced Brad Friedel into a fine save before Andy Williams' shot took a deflection off Steven Caulker, looped over Brad and home for the equaliser in the 75th minute.

Next up for us is a trip to Colchester United's Weston Homes Community Stadium for a 7pm kick-off on Friday.
