Swindon Town 3-3 Gillingham – BBC Sport

Charlie Austin’s brace helped 10-man Swindon fight back from 3-1 down to earn a draw at home against Gillingham.

Swindon took the lead after just 58 seconds when a cross was half-cleared by Gillingham straight to Jonny Williams, who volleyed into the corner of the net.

The Gills answered back straight away as Tom Nichols picked out Timothee Dieng with a cross and he amused it beyond Sol Brynn.

Inside 10 minutes, Gillingham had taken the lead when awarded a penalty for handball which Will Wright tucked into the bottom corner.

After 13 minutes it was 3-1 when the visitors whipped in a free-kick from the left and Nichols helped it on its way into the far corner of the net.

Austin pulled one back after the break when he powered home a penalty, and then got on the end of a Rushian Hepburn-Murphy cross to head in the equalizer with 10 minutes remaining.

Saidou Khan got a second yellow shortly after as he prevented a counter-attack with a foul on the halfway line.
