Swindon   1 - 1   Walsall

Swindon 1-1 Walsall

Swindon 1-1 Walsall

Swindon's automatic promotion hopes suffered a setback as they were held to a draw by Walsall.

With all of their chief rivals losing, Swindon had a chance to go level with second-placed Leeds with a victory.

However, they were behind just before half-time when Steve Jones fired the visitors ahead from close range.

Charlie Austin chested home a corner to equalise but a combination of wasteful finishing and Walsall keeper Rene Gilmartin denied them a winner.


Swindon Town manager Danny Wilson told BBC Wiltshire:
"The fact that we have away a sloppy goal again, the second in two matches, it gave Walsall something to hang on to.

"Second-half we got a goal back but we didn't have enough guile to get that second goal and we didn't pass it like we can and I think that's down to a bit of anxiousness.

"It'll go down to the last game of the season, I've always said that, and I can't see any great way it can change.
