Ollie Banks gives Swindon 10th away win of the season

Ollie Banks scored the only goal of the game as Swindo lifted themselves into the League Two play-off zone thanks to a scrappy 1-0 victory at Stevenage.

The Robins are now sixth following their 10th away league win of the season, extending what was already the best record in the division, and were hardly troubled by their hosts.

Swindon took the lead after 16 minutes when Banks made the most of some slack marking to head in Matt Taylor’s corner off the underside of the bar.

Banks then struck a long-range free kick narrowly over with the final act of a poor first half and the quality on show hardly improved after the restart.

Ben Purkiss saw a low effort skim along the turf before being held by Stevenage goalkeeper Tom King with what was a rare effort on target from either team.

Boro substitute Jamie Gray then whipped a superb effort just wide with his first touch after coming on, but it was a night where they barely threatened to find an equaliser.
