  • Onto the game...

With just one point between the two sides, tonight's fixture could be a defining one as time is beginning to run out if either club are to make a late charge into the Play-Off places.

Stevenage are currently on their worst run of form this season, with no win in five games and will be looking to put an end to that with a second home game in just four days.

Injury time joy and heartbreak have come in equal measure across the past four games, as each one has seen a goal scored of consequence after the 90th minute - two resuced points away from home, two late defeats at the Lamex Stadium.

On the other hand, Swindon head into the game off the back of defeat but strong form overall. To find out more about the Robins, read our Scouting Report.

Ben Nugent has now served his four game suspension and is now available for selection once again. Danny Newton and Jamal Campbell-Ryce are the two Stevenage players confirmed as absentees due to injury.

  • Boot in both camps…

Swindon Town top goalscorer Michael Doughty made 35 appearances for Stevenage whilst on-loan from QPR in 2013/2014. After two successful loan spells with the Robins in 2016/17, the midfielder signed a permanent deal with the club in the summer of 2018 following his release from Peterborough United.

29 year old James Dunne played in the same Stevenage team as Doughty and is now also with the Robins. Following his release from Boro in 2014, Dunne has gone onto play for St Johnstone, Portsmouth, Dagenham & Redbridge and Cambridge United before signing for Swindon in 2017.

Stevenage also have a couple of former Robins in the squad - Scott Cuthbert and Alex Revell. Revell made 10 appearances for the club during the 2009/2010 season whilst on loan from Southend. The striker scored twice during his time at the club but due to the form of club legends Billy Paynter and Charlie Austin, returned to Essex following the completion of his short-term loan.

Scott Cuthbert also played at the County Ground during this time, making 80 appearances between 2009 and 2011.
