Robins stay in hunt

Swindon kept their slim chances of a play-off spot alive after Lee Cox scored the winner in the 1-0 win over Bradford.

The Robins, who have won six in seven, needed to win to keep the pressure on Peterborough but are still four points behind with just two matches remaining.

Cox registered his first goal for the club on 64 minutes when he calmly shot right-footed into the bottom corner past Jon McLaughlin when the ball fell nicely to him in the box.

The home side had Wes Foderingham to thank for keeping the sides level in the first half when the keeper superbly stopped a Gary Jones free-kick after 13 minutes.

Mark Cooper's men really should have taken the lead just before the hour but Michael Smith's goalbound shot from a Miles Storey cross was kept out by McLaughlin before a goalmouth scramble.

After Cox's opener, Swindon pushed for the killer second goal and Alex Pritchard had the chance to seal the three points on 72 minutes but dragged just wide after latching onto a ball from Massimo Luongo.
