Swindon Town pack their bags to visit Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 37 games played, Robins have recorded 10 wins, and Brentford have come away with 18 victories.

The previous match played between the two at Griffin Park was more than three years back, in October 2005, when they played out a goalless draw in a League One match.
