Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After suffering a 2-0 loss to Barrow in their last league match, Swindon will look to return to winning ways when they take on Stevenage on Matchday 24. The Robins have not been in action since December 11, and, no doubt, they are hungry for football. Defender Dion Conroy is banned for the match as he was sent off in the defeat to Barrow.
The Boro, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Carlisle United and Stevenage. Considering that Swindon will not have a better chance than this to get back on course, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. Stevenage boss Paul Tisdale should stick to the 4-3-3 formation, with Luke Norris up front as a lone forward. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
