Swindon Town form and stats

There's been little loot from Swindon Town's travels as they have only collected 8 points from 13 away games in the League One. Swindon Town, who have the fewest clean sheets (2) in League One, only have 2 wins to counter their 9 defeats and 2 draws. Swindon seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Swindon had fun at their own home (LNER Stadium) last time out, beating Crewe Alexandra 2-1. Scott Twine scored. Prior to that match, the Swindon manager J. Sheridan faced defeat when travelling to Portsmouth and losing 0-2.

Scott Twine came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Crewe Alexandra last time out, making the manager J. Sheridan feel like a tactical genius. The end of the last match, against Crewe Alexandra, was very satisfying as Scott Twine scored the winning goal deep into overtime.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Northampton Town in just four days.

Swindon Town have scored 17 goals on their travels this season, from 13 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches.
