Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After suffering a 1-0 loss at Walsall, Stevenage will be aiming to get back on course when they take on Swindon Town on Matchday 6. The Boro are on a three-game winless run in the League Two, but Saturday’s match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Alex Revell could opt to make changes to the starting XI, with all Andrade, Daly, and Lines pushing for a start.
The Robins, on the other hand, have been flying high of late, with the team heading into the match following back-to-back wins over Salford (1-0) and Mansfield (1-0). Swindon Town aim to climb to top three, and given Stevenage’s anything but good form, punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the visiting team. One of the men to watch in the away team will be teenage attacker Tyreece Simpson, who scored the winner against Mansfield.
Highlighted Player (Scott Cuthbert ):
Born in Alexandria, Scotland on June 15, 1987, Scott Cuthbert is a defender who plays for Stevenage in the League Two. Cuthbert is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he did not see any game action with the Hoops in the Scottish Premiership.
After ending his loan spells with Livingston and St. Mirren, the Scottish footballer joined Swindon Town in 2009 where he quickly established himself as a first-team regular. After scoring five goals in 80 appearances for the club, Scott Cuthbert moved to Leyton Orient before the start of the 2011/12 season.
After almost a five-year spell with the Brisbane Road outfit, the right-footed defender joined Stevenage in the summer of 2018, and he has been playing for the Posh ever since. He made his Stevenage debut in a 2-2 draw with Tranmere Rovers in the 2018/19 season opener. At the end of the campaign the Scottish footballer was named the club’s Player of the Year.
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.
