First time: Bob Jack’s men drew 1-1 at the County Ground on Saturday, October 16, 1920 in both clubs’ inaugural season in the EFL. George Sheffield scored our goal.

Last time: Carl Fletcher’s men were still not safe from the dreaded drop into the Football Conference as they went down 0-1 to the Robins on Saturday, April 14, 2012. Fortunately, we went on to preserve our EFL status. Swindon finished as League 2 Champions.

Biggest win: Jack Rowley’s team won 3-0 at the County Ground on Saturday, March 9, 1957. Neil Dougall scored twice for us, while Town’s Jim Cross kindly put through his own net.

Heaviest defeat: We have lost 0-3 on three occasions: under Billy Bingham on Saturday, August 31, 1968; Bobby Saxton on Saturday, December 27, 1980 and Ken Brown on Tuesday, September 26, 1989.

Most goals in a single game: Seven in an exciting 4-3 win by Jack Rowley’s Pilgrims on Saturday, February 28, 1959. Jimmy Gauld scored a hat-trick and Peter Anderson grabbed our other goal. This represents the only occasion where either club has scored more than three goals in this fixture at the County Ground.

Further interesting facts: Argyle have gone nine games since last keeping a clean sheet at Swindon in the EFL. That came in a 2-0 win for Bobby Moncur’s team on Saturday, April 10, 1982. Andy Rogers scored both of our goals.

Prior to our 0-1 defeat at Town on our last visit, we had won 3-2 in our previous two games at the County Ground in the EFL. In both matches we had led 2-0, been pegged back to 2-2 and then scored winners in injury time in the second half. Marino Keith was the hero for Paul Sturrock’s team on December 13, 2003. Tony Capaldi and David Norris were our other scorers. Bradley Wright-Phillips popped up with the winner on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, his second goal of the game. Reda Johnson was our other scorer on the night.

It is over 90 years since our one and only goalless draw in the EFL at the County Ground. That came on Wednesday, September 5, 1928 under Bob Jack’s management. Overall, 7.2% of our away matches in the EFL have ended 0-0, against Town it’s just 3.0%.
