Swindon Town leave it late to win against Shrewsbury Town, as two late goals from Nile Ranger and Michael Smith confirm a 3-1 win for the Robins.

Late goals by Nile Ranger and Michael Smith have seen Swindon Town beat Shrewsbury Town 3-1 in today's League One game at the County Ground.

After a quiet start, Robins debutant Smith rose highest to meet a corner in the seventh minute, but he headed over the crossbar.

Six minutes later, Ryan Mason was fouled on the edge of the Shrews box. Alex Pritchard stepped up to take the free kick, but fired over.

Just before the half-hour mark, Smith drew first blood for Swindon, firing home from inside the box.

Shrewsbury pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time, courtesy of Paul Parry's long-range free kick.

Midway through the second half, Robins keeper Wes Foderingham had to throw himself to his right to push a powerful Shrews effort onto the woodwork.

The home side regained the advantage in the 89th minute when Ranger headed home from close range.

In injury time, the Robins made sure of the victory, with Ranger turning provider to assist Smith for his second of the game.
