History of the Swindon Town v Gillingham fixture

Swindon Town prepare to entertain Gillingham at County Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Robins are clearly on top, having won 26 and lost only 5 of the 41 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at County Ground was just last season, in February 2006, the Robins carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League One match.
