Josh McQuoid: Opened the scoring

A second-half header from Raphael Rossi-Branco earned Swindon a much deserved point in a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Coventry.

A second-half header from Raphael Rossi-Branco earned Swindon a much deserved point in a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Coventry.

After a quiet start, Swindon should have taken the lead in the 38th minute when Massimo Luongo was threaded in one-on-one against Coventry goalkeeper Ryan Allsop, who denied Luongo with an outstretched foot.

But three minutes later, Coventry went ahead with their first shot of the game.

Jim O'Brien burst down the right on the counter and his crossfield ball was not intercepted by Joshua Lelan. Josh McQuoid collected the pass and despite a heavy second touch, bustled past goalkeeper Wes Foderingham and tapped into an empty net.

Foderingham stopped Coventry from doubling the lead in the 64th minute, making a superb one-handed save from close range after Andy Webster headed goalwards from a corner.

But Swindon equalised eight minutes later, Rossi-Branco heading in a brilliant delivery from Nathan Byrne on the left.

Coventry's Simeon Jackson blazed wide unmarked in the penalty area late on, as both sides had to settle for a point.
