Recent respective form guides

Tranmere Rovers have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 in the wrong end.

Swindon's away form is none too clever either, losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. A generous 10 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Tranmere are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 14 points from 14 matches. Swindon's 20 points from 14 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position.
