Collins (c): Nets Swindon's equaliser

Collins (c): Nets Swindon's equaliser

James Collins scored a late equaliser as Swindon fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Coventry at the County Ground.

Sky Blues fan James Collins scored against the team he has supported since childhood as his side fought back.

Paolo di Canio's side looked to be heading for a surprise defeat after David McGoldrick's first-half double had put the struggling Sky Blues in control.

Gary Roberts' 77th-minute strike followed by substitute Collins' powerfully-struck volley three minutes later earned the promotion-chasers an unlikely point.

Swindon winger Matt Ritchie saw his second-minute shot strike the post before McGoldrick headed in John Fleck's left-wing free-kick after 13 minutes.

Striker McGoldrick doubled his and the visitors' tally eight minutes before half-time, rifling home from 10 yards after Swindon goalkeeper Wes Foderingham flapped at a Fleck corner.

Roberts reduced the arrears by volleying in from six yards after Tommy Miller had flicked on Alan Navarro's corner and Collins completed the comeback soon after with a stunning shot from the edge of the penalty area after Jay McEveley had centred.
