Late Alex Fisher equaliser earns Yeovil draw against Swindon

Alex Fisher scored a superb 89th-minute equaliser as Yeovil twice came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at play-off chasing Swindon and deny home manager Phil Brown his first County Ground win.
Fisher neatly controlled Omar Sowunmi's flick inside the Swindon penalty area before crashing home a thumping strike off the inside of the post.
Swindon had looked to be heading for a crucial victory thanks to Matt Taylor's brace.
Taylor gave Swindon the lead in the 11th minute, sweeping home a Kaiyne Woolery cross before Lewis Wing drew Yeovil level from long range in the 68th minute.
But the Glovers' joy was short-lived as Taylor claimed his and Swindon's second just four minutes later.
Taylor's shot from just inside the penalty area took a deflection before sailing past substitute Yeovil goalkeeper Jonny Maddison.
And Fisher struck a late leveller to deny Swindon a win which would have lifted them above Mansfield and Coventry and into the top seven.
