History of the Swindon Town v Tranmere Rovers fixture

Tranmere Rvs. face a trip to Swindon Town at County Ground on Wednesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 13 and win only 3 of the 23 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2002, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Division Two match.
