Our prediction for this League 2 match:
County Ground will host Saturday’s football game between Swindon Town and Stockport County, the two top-table sides. The Robins suffered a dip in form, with the team extending their losing run to three games at Colchester United and, no doubt, they are desperate to get back on course. Even though there are no fresh injury concerns in the home team, both Hepburn-Murphy and Minturn are pushing for a start.
The Hatters, on the other hand, are on a twelve-game winning run in all competitions and given Swindon’s shaky defence, away win should definitely be considered. It has to be noted that Swindon conceded 13 goals in total in the previous three league matches. Grenada forward Myles Hippolyte limped off with injury in the FA Cup win over Worksop, with Ethan Pye likely to step up. The opposition defenders should have Kyle Wootton at bay as he scored four goals in the FA Cup win.
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.
