Recent respective form guides
Bristol Rovers will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. While Pirates have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the Robins, and 9 goals against.
Bristol Rvs. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Npower League One with a return of just 24 points from their 24 games thus far. Swindon Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 28 points from 24 matches.
