Swindon Town face a trip to Stockport County at Edgeley 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 ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2004, as the visitors ran out cosy 2 - 4 winners in a League Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides
Stockport County's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Hatters have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Robins's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 7 goals for and 6 against.
Stockport Co. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 10 games have yielded only 5 points. Swindon Town lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League One, picking up 16 from their 10 games so far.
