Swindon Town face a trip to Southend United at Roots Hall 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 29 and win only 13 of the 54 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2007, the Shrimpers carving out a narrow 2 - 1 victory in a League One match.
