Michael Smith: Grabbed the winner

Michael Smith scored a dramatic injury-time winner to give Swindon a 2-1 victory over Coventry at Sixfields.

Smith's winner in the 93rd minute leaves the Robins just four points off the play-offs after Spurs loanee Alex Pritchard's opener had been cancelled out by John Fleck.

Swindon took the lead on eight minutes when, after some poor City defending, Pritchard was left unmarked 12 yards out to power in his eighth of the season.

But the Sky Blues drew level on 43 minutes when Fleck beat two players and hit a sweet shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area for his first of the campaign.

After the break, Nathan Thompson got in behind the Sky Blues defence but Joe Murphy made a good save with his legs to deny the defender.

But Swindon eventually scored the winner in the third minute of added time when Jay McEveley's cross from the right was headed in by Smith.

The result leaves Swindon within touching distance of sixth-placed Peterborough while the Sky Blues remain without a win in their last four games.
