Away Days: Swindon Town vs Stevenage FC

28 December 2021

Stevenage Football Club make the trip to Wiltshire this Wednesday evening for a crucial Sky Bet League Two clash with Ben Garner’s Swindon Town…

Paul Tisdale’s men come into this match with fresh legs as the boxing day fixture with Crawley Town was postponed. Before that, Boro travelled to Salford city for a 1-0 defeat despite the side showing promising signs. As for Swindon, they look for their first league win since the 23rd of November.

The-Oppistion.jpgFounded in 1879, Swindon have plenty of history to look back on. They were first elected into the Football League in 1920 and remained in the third tier for forty-three years until their promotion into the second division in 1963. Six years later, The Robins won the League Cup after coming out on top against Arsenal in the 1969 final.

They dropped into the fourth tier for the first time in history in the 1981-82 season but were soon promoted four seasons later. In 1993, Glenn Hoddle coached Swindon to the Second Division Play-off final before earning promotion to the top flight for the first time. Unfortunately, Swindon only lasted one season in the premier league as they were relegated at the end of the 1993/94 campaign. Since 2006, they have found themselves promoted and relegated between League One and Two several times, most recently last season as they were relegated out of League One.

Swindon currently find themselves 8th in Sky Bet League Two, level on points with a play-off place. So far this season, they have won nine, drawn six and lost five under the management of Ben Garner. Their current top scorer is Tyreece Simpson with nine in all competitions.


Stevenage and Swindon have met each other fourteen times competitively, with the Robins possessing the better win rate. Swindon have won nine times, with Boro winning four and the sides drawing just once. In this season’s reverse fixture between the two clubs, the score finished 1-1. Ben Coker opened the scoring on the fifty third minute, but a last-minute penalty rescued a point for Swindon.

Swindon have played their home games at the County Ground since 1896. The current capacity is 15,728, all of which are seated, and has been at that number since the 1990s. A record attendance of 32,000 was set in January 1972 in a Third Round FA Cup clash with Arsenal. The stadium has had other uses in the past, including multiple England women and youth matches along with being a concert venue.

At the 20 minute mark Swindon’s started to grow into the game as captain Jack Payne saw his shot from outside the box fly just wide of the Stevenage post. Stevenage came straight back and after some tricky feet Chris Lines won his team a freekick on the edge of the area. The resulting free kick saw Luke Prossers Headed effort go just wide of the post.

Stevenage continued to pile on the pressure and on 32 minutes Luke Norris fired a shot from the edge of the box, once again causing Wollacott issues and after parrying the ball List was inches away from the putting the ball into the Swindon net, only to be stopped by a strong Swindon challenge by Rob Hunt to keep the score 0-0.

Swindon continued to pressure Stevenage in the late stages and with ten minutes to go Swindon’s Ellis Iandolo fired a shot from the edge of the box forcing Adam Smith to make a strong save to keep Stevenage in the game.

Stevenage replied quickly when Bruno Andrade’s floated cross found List who fired his headed effort over the bar keeping the score 0-0.

In the 87th  Swindon looked to steal the game, as Jonny Williams fired a ball across goal to find Kesler-Hayden at the back post but his effort went high over the bar giving Stevenage a lifeline.

At the full time whistle neither team could find the winning goal. Stevenage now look forward to their next game where they travel away to top of the table Forest Green Rovers on New Year’s day.
