    • Swindon Town
    • Aston Villa
    • 90' Giant killers Swindon are finally out! 3-2 loss against Villa despite a massive fightback late on from 2-0 down. Villa scrape through.
    • 90' GOAL! Heartbreak for Swindon! Benteke scores with 10 seconds left! What a game! 3-2 Villa.
    • 88' Crazy scenes in the closing minutes at the County Ground! De Vita goes down in the Villa box but nothing given - up the other end and Weimann hits the post!
    • 83' Lambert has brought on Darren Bent for Ireland in the closing stages here. Villa going all-out to rescue what was a comfortable contest.
    • 81' GOAL! STOREY AGAIN! Swindon are level! What an audacious back-heel finish! Di Canio is beside himself with joy on the touchlines! Swindon 2-2 Villa!
    • 78' GOAL SWINDON! Sub Miles Storey with a poacher's finish on a good cross from the left. Game well and truly on. 1-2!
    • 68' Villa could and should have killed off the contest! Deadly counter which sees Ireland looking for that final ball again, but Benteke is held off by some last-ditch defending and the corner is conceded.
    • 65' CHANCE! Swindon attack with style and their best player Richie fires in another peach of a cross which Roberts puts narrowly wide!
    • 64' More pressure from Villa at the County Ground as both Bannan and Benteke have efforts closed down.
    • 53' Villa enjoy a spell of dominance but are caught at sixes and sevens as Swindon break and are lucky to only concede a corner.
    • 49' Just after Roberts heads a Ritchie cross off-target, Andy Williams comes on for the hosts who trail Villa 2-0. Benson makes way.
    • 45' And half-time between Swindon and Aston Villa, with the away side 2-0 up, means all five matches are into their intermissions now.
    • 39' GOAL! Villa double up! Great stuff from Agbonlahor to cut inside full-back Devera and half-volleying low past Foderingham. Swindon boss Paolo di Canio appeared laid back at the start of the match, by his standards at least, but is cutting a vexed figure after the two Villa goals. 0-2.
    • 30' GOAL VILLA! Somewhat against the run of play but Aston Villa score at Swindon as Ireland produces a wonderful cross for Benteke to head home the opening goal. 0-1
    • 27' Swindon are playing well against higher-ranked opposition once more and Lowton has just cleared a ball off the Villa goal line with Vlaar doing well to clear the ensuing danger.
