IT’S JUST LIKE THE MOVIES!
SWINDON continue to live out a season fit for the silver screen after leaving it late to nick what could prove to be a valuable point in the race for promotion.
The Robins were all over the place in the
Millwall looked to be on course for a sixth win in nine outings – form that has seen them nestle comfortably inside the play-off places – but missed out on the chance to strengthen their grip on fifth spot, despite bossing large parts of the game in front of their travelling faithful.
Gregory latched onto a long ball before finishing with aplomb beyond Lawrence Vigouroux in the sixth minute.

“The players on the pitch have got to be able to see things live and react to it on the pitch and that’s what they’ve done again.” 1 month = £2.99, 3 months = £7.99, 6 months = £13.99, Annual = £23.99 Subscribe on our website www.racingahead.net
