Recent respective form guides

Stockport County's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Hatters have scored 10, a worringly large 16 have been leaked at the other end.

Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Robins's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 7 against.

Stockport Co. find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 14 points. Swindon Town's total of 41 points from their 23 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League One.
