Video of the Week: Chesterfield 1 Swindon 3 – 23rd April 1996
With Chesterfield our next opponents it’s time to look back at the most memorable meeting between the two sides.
My first ever Swindon Town away game was a trip to Chesterfield on a Tuesday night in April 1996 to be at the match when Town clinched the Division Two title.
After taking the lead on 26 minutes through Steve Cowe, Chesterfield equalised just four minutes later – their celebrations are short-lived though, as Peter Thorne scores almost directly after the restart with a fantastic effort from the edge of the box.
With eleven minutes left on the clock, Wayne Allison strikes at the far post to wrap up the victory, and seal the Division Two championship for Swindon with three games remaining.
