Match preview: Swindon Town

14 November 2020

Match preview for Town's Sky Bet League One fixture with Swindon Town.

After winning two cup games away from home in the last week, Shrewsbury Town return to Montgomery Waters Meadow for their Skybet League One game against Swindon Town. The Robins currently occupy 20th position with nine points after losing six and winning three times. All three of their wins have been at home with Rochdale (3-1), Burton (4-2) and Hull City (2-1) defeated. However, they did record their first away win of the season at Forest Green this week in the Papa John's Trophy, beating Forest Green 1-0.

Head to Head

Our last two games with Swindon were in the 2016/17 season and both ended in 1-1 draws. Both were intense affairs with three red cards and goals from Ivan Toney and Mat Sadler. The previous season had seen Swindon beat us home and away, 3-0 at the County Ground and 1-0 at Montgomery Waters Meadow. In total, we've played each other 62 times with the Robins winning twice as many times as us with 28 League wins.


Tyler Smith with five goals, two in the league and three in the cup. The 21-year-old loanee from Sheffield United is in his fifth loan move since July 2018 when he joined Barrow. He's also spent time with Doncaster, Bristol Rovers and Rochdale, scoring wherever he's played.

They've conceded eleven times in away games in League One, five in the first half and six in the second. Their worst period for conceding goals is the first fifteen minutes with three.

Clean Sheets

So far Swindon have kept one clean sheet, in the Papa John's Trophy on Tuesday when they beat Forest Green 1-0 away.


Swindon Town have received 16 yellow and 1 red card so far this season and their 19 points mean that they are 14th in the disciplinary table.
