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.
