Recent respective form guides

Swindon Town's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The Robins's have scored 11 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 12.

Scunthorpe U.'s away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the Iron, and 11 goals against.

Swindon Town find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 14 games have yielded only 8 points. Scunthorpe U.'s total of 21 points from their 14 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca Cola League One.

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 Iron come away with an easy victory. Away win
