History of the Swindon Town v Northampton Town fixture

Swindon Town prepare to entertain Northampton Town at County Ground on Tuesday evening, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having chalked up an impressive 32 wins out of 48 previous matches.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at County Ground was less than a year ago, in February 2008, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Swindon Town's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Robins have scored 9, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Northampton's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Cobblers's have scored 11 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 12.

Swindon Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 9 points from 11 matches. Northampton's 16 points from 11 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Robins at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Cobblers come away with an easy victory. Away win
