Swindon reinforced their promotion claims with a 3-2 win at Lincoln.

Lincoln started the day a place above Swindon in League Two, but they were cut down as The Robins ran out winners on their travels.

The Red Imps made a bright start to the contest and Junior Mendes passed up a couple of good chances inside the opening ten minutes.

Mendes may have left his shooting boots in the dressing room, but Mark Stallard certainly had not as he swept Lincoln ahead with a neat finish on 13 minutes.

The goal acted as a spur for Swindon as Christian Roberts levelled the scores four minutes later with a calm finish after the ball travelled across the Lincoln area.

Barry Corr made himself an instant hit with the Swindon fans as he slotted home a debut goal on 34 minutes.

Lee Peacock handed Swindon a cushion with a deft strike on 49 minutes, but Stallard set up a grandstand finish when burrowing through and beating Phil Smith.

Lincoln had chances to force a point, but were kept at bay as Swindon moved onto the 70-point mark.
