Swindon v Oxford

It's the A420 clash and a massive one for both teams. But then again what derby match isn't big!!

Swindon Town are fighting a relegation battle and with just 9 pts from a possible 30 over the last 10 matches things are not looking good.

However on the yellows side of the A420 life is a lot brighter. The team are in the last 16 of the FA cup. Have made it to the Semi-Final of the checkatrade.

Swindon have had a high number of new arrivals during January in a bid to stop the rot. Hard job there!!

Where as Oxford have not felt to add too many new faces as the team are performing well on the pitch.

Its now 15 years since Swindon have beaten the yellows. In that time Oxford have won 6 and drawn 1.
