3' Early corner for the Town, Jake Gray to take...Swindon clear #COYH

2016-12-06 19:48:21

6' The hosts take the lead, a good through ball between Justin and Musonda is stroked into the net by Luke Norris ST 1 LTFC 0 #COYH

2016-12-06 19:51:12

GOAL!!! Josh McQuoid taps in the Town's equaliser within two minutes after Swindon keeper Henry spilled Vassell's shot 1-1 #COYH

2016-12-06 19:53:36

11' Good move by Swindon ends with a shot from Delfouneso, but King gets down low to save well #COYH

2016-12-06 19:56:29

16' Another good move from Swindon, but Justin slides in to stop debutant Rhys Sharpe...and King collects the resulting corner #COYH

2016-12-06 20:01:38

17' Great chance for Vassell, Pelly-Ruddock swings a cross in from the left and Vassell doesn't make clean contact #COYH

2016-12-06 20:02:54

GOAL!!!! McQuoid gets his second with a stunning strike from the edge of the box, just after Potts had missed another good chance. 2-1 #COYH

2016-12-06 20:04:07

21' Now Vassell is trying to get in on the act, great burst of pace down the left & low shot that Henry gets down to save at near post #COYH

2016-12-06 20:06:03

25' Smith puts in a terrific cross from the right that is just too high for McQuoid, who is on a hat-trick remember #COYH

2016-12-06 20:09:46

26' Potts and Senior produce great blocks to prevent Swindon drawing level again, after a dangerous break down the right from Goddard #COYH

2016-12-06 20:11:56

43' Terrific instant control of a long ball by McQuoid & he tries to pick out a sliding Gray at the far post, just too strong for him #COYH

2016-12-06 20:57:30

59' Delfouneso is Swindon's danger man & he chances his arm from 20 yds, but his shot flies over the Town bar. Still 2-1 to Hatters #COYH

2016-12-06 21:01:30

2-2 - Swindon draw level on 63 minutes with a fine striker from distance from sub Ellis Iandolo #COYH

2016-12-06 21:04:09

2016-12-06 21:06:05

65' Up the other end, Vassell sends in another shot from outside the box, but it's too high #COYH

76' Jonathan Smith has the ball in the Swindon net, but he used his hand to control the ball #COYH

2016-12-06 21:17:29

82' There's been a lot of fine attacking play tonight, but some terrific defending just now by Musonda to halt Murray in his tracks #COYH

2016-12-06 21:23:37

85' Second sub for the Town, Tyreeq Bakinson on for Jake Gray #COYH

2016-12-06 21:26:05

The Town are keeping the ball well here at the County Ground, just over two mins of normal time to go, still 3-2 up #COYH

2016-12-06 21:29:13

The 134 travelling Town fans in the crowd of 1,692 can be heard singing 'Come on Luton' in the corner of the main stand! #COYH

2016-12-06 21:30:10

Lovely cross-field ball from Bakinson as we approach time to be added on at the end of 90 minutes here #COYH

2016-12-06 21:31:23

We'll have 3 minutes of that extra time...still 3-2 to the Hatters #COYH

2016-12-06 21:32:29

FT - it's all over here in Wiltshire. Terrific performance from the Town to win 3-2 with a pair from @mcquoid23 & one from @Vassell93 #COYH

2016-12-06 21:35:37

The Town progress to round three. Safe journey home to the 134 travelling Hatters. Thanks for your terrific support as ever #COYH
