Footymad preview History of the Plymouth Argyle v Swindon Town fixture

Swindon Town face a trip to Plymouth Argyle at Home Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 23 out of 35 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2011, the Pilgrims carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Plymouth Argyle's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Pilgrims have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Robins's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 7 against.

Plymouth Argyle find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 13 games have yielded only 8 points.

Swindon Town's 19 points from 13 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position.
