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 8, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Oldham Ath.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Latics have hit 7 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Swindon Town find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 12 points from their 12 matches. Oldham Ath.'s total of 22 points from their 12 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League One.
