Last Time We Met Swindon Town

15 February 2018

Neil Aspin and his Port Vale side will make the trip to The County Ground on Saturday afternoon as they face Swindon Town in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened the last time we met?

Vale went into the clash with a three-match winning streak, but it was the Robins who prevailed at Vale Park back in October.

It proved to be a cagey first half as neither side could pull themselves ahead before the break. Keshi Anderson had a goal ruled out for offside and David Worrall struck a free-kick just over, but it remained goalless after 45 minutes.

With 51 minutes played, the pendulum swung in Swindon's favour as Matt Taylor curled a free-kick of his own into the top corner from 26 yards.

The Robins then doubled their advantage five minutes later as Paul Mullin poked a shot past Dimitar Evtimov, but the scoring was wrapped up late on as Kellan Gordon sweeped home a square ball from Harry Smith.

Our last meeting away from home came back in August 2016, with Swindon also coming out on top on that occasion. Bradley Barry fired in the only goal of the game two minutes after the restart to condemn Vale to defeat.
