Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Swindon Town are determined to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League. The league leaders have been producing splendid displays in the League Two of late, with the team recording a win in each of their last four league fixtures. The Robins are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to Cleethorpes, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend.
A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be experienced Ireland attacker Eoin Doyle, who has already netted 17 goals this season. Grimsby Town have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous four league fixtures. David faces Goliath at Blundell Park, and we are positive that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s showdown.
Highlighted Team (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
