Swindon 1-3 Bristol Rovers
Former Swindon winger Mark Walters was involved in all three goals for Bristol Rovers on his first return to the County Ground as the Pirates won 3-1.

Walters, who left for Bristol Rovers on a free transfer 11 months ago made his first contribution in the 13th minute.

The former England winger took a corner which Mark Foran headed down for Marcus Andreasson to score from close range.

Swindon hit back with Giuliano Grazioli heading just over and Martin Williams hitting the bar with another header.

But they were made to pay for their failure to find the target when Bristol Rovers went further ahead in the 31st minute.

Walters took a free-kick on the left, Foran headed back and Martin Williams prodded a shot past his own keeper.

Bristol Rovers finished off the match as a contest in the 36th minute with a penalty conceded in the goal mouth chaos which followed another Walters corner.

David Duke tumbled into the back of Danny Allsopp and Micky Evans stepped up to score with the penalty.

Swindon's consolation came in injury-time from a Mark Robertson spot-kick after Foran had fouled Keith O'Halloran.

Swindon: Griemink, Robinson, Willis, O'Halloran, Invincible, Duke, Howe, M. Williams, Reeves, Davis, Grazioli. Subs: Mildenhall, Van der Linden, Young, Robertson, A. Williams.

Bristol Rovers: Culkin, Challis, Foran, Jones, Andreasson, Walters, Astafjevs, Allsopp, Evans, Bryant, Bignot. Subs: Parkin, Hillier, Plummer, Ellis, Dagnogo.

Referee: P Richards (Preston)
