Sports Mole rounds up the day's League One action, including an emphatic win for Swindon Town and an eighth consecutive defeat for Colchester United.

Swindon Town continued their fine recent form this afternoon by thrashing Carlisle United at the County Ground.

Andy Williams bagged a brace, while James Collins and Raffaele de Vita were also on the scoresheet as the Robins ran out comfortable winners over the Cumbrians.

Swindon, who occupy fifth position in the League One table, have now won their last four matches by an aggregate score of 16-0.

They remain five points behind second-place Doncaster Rovers, after the Yorkshire side narrowly overcame Colchester United at the Keepmoat Stadium.

David Cotterill scored the only goal of the game six minutes from time to condemn Colchester to their eighth consecutive league defeat, which equals the club record.

Elsewhere, Stevenage came from behind to win at Crewe Alexandra courtesy of strikes from Lucas Akins and Marcus Haber.

There were no goals at Glanford Park, where Scunthorpe United finished all square with Shrewsbury Town.
