Last Time We Met Swindon Town

15 March 2019

John Askey and his Port Vale side will travel to the County Ground in search of a third successive victory in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon, but can you remember what happened when the two sides last met?

It was back in November when the Robins made the trip to Vale Park, and they edged a tight contest to head back to Wiltshire with all three points in Sky Bet League Two.

Swindon scored the only goal of the game on 11 minutes through Elijah Adebayo, a late replacement for Marc Richards who got injured in the warm-up, as he followed up to tap home following Scott Brown's save from Scott Twine.

Vale then knocked on the door as Tom Conlon forced Lawrence Vigouroux into a save before Tom Pope headed over the bar, but they were unable to find a breakthrough. 

That was despite a positive second half, but Louis Dodds, Ben Whitfield and Scott Quigley couldn't find the back of the net, with the Swindon goalkeeper keeping a late header out from the Blackpool loanee.

In the history of the two clubs, there have been 83 meetings, with Vale winning 30 of them. Swindon have came out on top on 33 occasions, whilst there have been 19 stalemates.
