Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Swindon Town will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Newport County when they take on Salford City in the League Two round 32. The Robins have already recorded eight wins at home this season and they are seen as favourites to win Saturday’s clash as well. Tyrese Shade has joined Solihull Moors on loan, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Lions, on the other hand, have recorded three wins in the previous four league matches, but seeing that Swindon do not suit Karl Robinson’s troops, we are tempted to put our money on the home side this time out. Jacob Hamman is no longer part of Salford City as he joined Nantwich Town on loan. There are no fresh injury concerns in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Wiltshire. Earlier this term the two sides played out a 2-2 draw.
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.
