Swindon Town face a trip to Port Vale at Vale Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Robins will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 19 and win only 5 of the 34 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was was two seasons ago, in November 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League One match.

Recent respective form guides

Port Vale's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Valiants have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. The Robins's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 7.

Port Vale are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 8 points from their 12 games thus far. Swindon Town lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League One, picking up 19 from their 11 games so far.
