Match Previews

Match preview - Swindon head to The EnviroVent in League Two action

16 November 2023

Victory at Walsall made it four consecutive league wins and five unbeaten overall on their travels and Simon Weaver will be looking to translate that return at home as his side bids to move into the top half of the table.


Our opponents

Swindon come into the tie two spots and a point above Town. The Robins do come into the game in a patchy run of form though with a run of four league defeats in a row as well as a 7-4 defeat to non-league outfit Aldershot in the FA Cup.

They are winless in eight games away from home since victory at Forest Green back in mid-August and have lost four in five.

Their fixtures so far in the 2023/24 season average a league high almost 4 goals per game. Only Stockport have scored more than their 36 goals but only Newport and bottom side Sutton have conceded more than their 31.

Previous meetings

Town ran riot on the opening day of last season when Alex Pattison kicked things off just before half-time before Matty Daly and Jack Muldoon added further goals after the break in a 3-0 win.

The 2021/22 season saw the Robins come away with a 4-1 victory with both Louie Barry and Josh Davison hitting a brace before Luke Armstrong’s injury time consolation reduced the arrears.

The man in charge

Michael Flynn is the man in the charge, having been appointed at the end of last season.

Flynn had previously been in charge at Newport County, managing 250 games and leading them to the playoffs as well as having an 18-month spell at Walsall.

During his playing career he made over 400 appearances for a number of clubs, notably for County as well as Wigan, Gillingham, Blackpool, Huddersfield and Bradford.

Ones to watch

Forwards Jake Young and Dan Kemp, on loan from Bradford City and MK Dons, lead the way in the scoring charts with 12 and nine goals respectively. Veteran Charlie Austin has four goals and five assists as well.

Full-back Remeao Hutton will look to get forward at every opportunity to support the attack and he has three assists on the season so far

Fomrer Chelsea youngster George McEachran is impressing in midfield following a move last January.


The Robins were formed as Swindon AFC back in 1879 before settling on Swindon Town in 1883.

Initially members of the Western and Southern League they were elected to the Football League in 1920, beginning in the third tier before securing their first promotion in 1963 to Division Two.

The club shocked Arsenal in the 1969 League Cup final to secure their first major trophy, but suffered subsequent relegations to end up back in the bottom division in the early 1980’s.

With former Manchester United player Lou Macari at the helm the club earned back to back promotions in the mid-1980’s to return to the Division Two but were denied a further promotion in 1990 due to breaching Football League regulations.

Future Chelsea and England manager Glenn Hoddle finally took Town to the top flight in 1993 but they were relegated at the first attempt before suffering a second successive relegation a season later. Although immediately bouncing back they were relegated again in 2000 and have remained in the bottom two divisions over the past two decades.

Team news

Simon Weaver has no fresh injury concerns following on from our midweek defeat to Carlisle.

Match Reports

TOWN 1-1 Swindon Town - Muldoon strike earns Town a deserved point

18 November 2023

A fine second-half strike from Jack Muldoon earned Town a point this afternoon in an entertaining 1-1 draw at home to Swindon Town.

Town had fallen behind just before the mid-point of the half courtesy of Jake Young’s fine effort from the edge of the area but Muldoon’s finish capped an excellent display from a Town side who were unfortunate not to come away with all three points.

Simon Weaver made four changes from the side that was defeated 2-0 at Carlisle in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy in midweek. Anthony O’Connor, Kayne Ramsay, Matty Foulds and Sam Folarin all returned with Warren Burrell, Liam Gibson, George Horbury and Jeremy Sivi all dropped down to the bench.

For the visitors there was one change from their last outing with George McEachran missing our through injury. His place in the starting eleven by Liam Kinsella.

The early back and forth was broken when a hopeful ball forward was picked up by Jake Young who held off both O’Connor and Rod McDonald to get a right-footed shot ion goal. He dragged his effort wide of Jonathan Mitchell’s right-hand post though.

There was an immediate response from Town though. Clever play from Folarin played in Abraham Odoh, who skipped beyond the visitors defence but his shot was turned away by Murphy Mahoney.

On 15 minutes the Robins had a glorious opportunity to take the lead. Town’s defence was caught out by a long ball that saw Dan Kemp bear down on goal with Charlie Austin in support. Kemp’s heavy touch allowed Ramsay to recover the danger and Town to breathe a sigh of relief.

Folarin then used his pace to spring the offside trap and receive Odoh’s cleverly weighted pass but once again Mahoney was equal to the task.

Barely two minutes later the visitors had the lead. The dangerous Young picked up possession, cut inside and arrowed the ball beyond Mitchell for his 13th goal of the season.

Kinsella went into the book shortly after for bringing down Odoh before the Town forward sliced a half-chance wide from just inside the area.

Folarin had another good chance for Town on the half-hour. Muldoon threaded a pass through to him and he looked to guide the ball beyond Mahoney but the Swindon keeper got a strong hand to the shot to turn behind for a corner.

Town were purposeful immediately after the breaking, looking to take the game to Swindon and get back on level terms. And Matty Foulds almost got on the end of George Thomson’s free-kick that was delivered to the far post.

Ten minutes into the half the wily Austin stole in at the near post to poke Dan Kemp’s corner goalbound. Mitchell was alert enough though to get down low and make the save.

Odoh then had a good opportunity when he raced on to O’Connor’s defence-splitting pass but his first-time strike was just inches the wrong side of the post. The pace of Odoh and Folarin was continuing to cause problems to the Swindon backline.

Town got their reward on 66 minutes though. One-touch play from Folarin and Odoh set up Muldoon who struck beyond Mahoney off the post to level at 1-1.

Minutes later Muldoon then raced the length of the field into his own box to make a last ditch clearance to thwart a Swindon counter-attack.

The visitors made the first change of the afternoon on 70 minutes when Austin was withdrawn in favour of Tom Brewitt.

Town were indebted to Mitchell with fifteen minutes remaining when a clever turn from Kokolo saw him one on one with the Town keeper. He stood tall though to deflect the shot away from goal.

Kokolo then went into the book for a cynical foul on Folarin when Town were about to launch a dangerous breakaway.

Simon Weaver made his first change of the afternoon with ten minutes remaining when the fresh legs of Levi Sutton were called for with the midfielder replacing Dean Cornelius in a like for like change.

The quick thinking of Odoh then saw him play in Folarin with a quick throw-in but he hesitated at the final moment which saw Mahoney get just enough on his shot to prevent the goal.

The visitors thought they had nicked a late winner with five minutes remaining when they bundled the ball home but the referee correctly adjudicated that Mitchell had been fouled in the build-up.

The point was enough to end Town’s run of defeats at home but it was a day where they could, and perhaps should, have come away with more.
