Swindon Town

These two sides last came face to face at the end of September when Swindon Town beat the Mariners 2-1 at the County Ground. Dan Kemp got the opener in the first half before Jake Cain doubled the hosts lead in the second half. Town got one back through Donovan Wilson just minutes later but were unable to find the equaliser with Swindon taking the three points.

Swindon are currently managed by interim head coach Gavin Gunning, his third spell as interim boss with the Robins. Gunning played for a wide variety of clubs during his playing days before moving into coaching in 2022 with Swindon. He’s overseen his side since the middle of January after the departure of Michael Flynn.

The Robins come into this game on a mixed run of form having picked up three wins from their last five, losing two in the process to Walsall and Sutton United. Swindon are now mathematically safe from relegation and out of contention for promotion meaning Gunning’s side will be playing for pride at BP tomorrow.

Tomorrow’s visitors have officially the worst away record in Sky Bet League Two with 16 points picked up from 22 games on their travels. That including three wins, seven draws and twelve defeats in the league.

Dan Kemp is the Robin’s top scorer this season having scored 16 goals in 27 games played. Town’s joint scorer Jake Young was recalled in January from parent club Bradford City after an impressive start to the season at Swindon.
