Swindon supporter says they have sold out their 946 south stand allocation but have been refused the extra 400 for the east stand. Presumably to the recent troubles caused at Stevenage.
Not sure of the thinking on this as the troublemakers could already have bought their tickets in the south.

I thought we'd want to maximise the attendance. 400 extra £22's is a lot to turn down. £8800 in fact. It wouldn't cost much in extra stewarding (assuming stewards are available).

The club are having lots of issues with the ticketing system at the moment so might be linked to that.

Swindon's best results have come on the road,4 points from 4 home games, 7 points from 3 away games. They won 3-1 at Scunny, won 1-0 at Salford and drew 1-1 at Stevenage. But so far they have not played any of the top 10 in the division. Like us they are struggling for goals as their opening day 3-1 win at Scunny is the only game they have scored more than 1.
We have Brett Huxtable as referee who appears to disliked by supporters of most clubs. General comments of unfit, overweight and struggles to keep up with play and his past displays here have not been impressive.

And maybe personnel issues too perhaps?

The why would we suspend online sales, surely that would elevate the staff problems?

From what I have seen of Swindon on tv highlights they seem to have a decent 'keeper in Joe Wollacott.
According to one of their fans posts the don't cope well with a high press, are you aware JB?

They also say they are flooded with midfielders...which doesn't bode well for us!

Rarely works in a favour though - as does playing teams that have had more games in close succession than us.

Still we start at 0-0, morale is good and they are not pulling up trees.

No Hoskins then. Obviously an oversight on your part.  Shocked

West Stand OAP has already done half the preview..... anyway...the Robins come bobbing along to Sixfields for this 2.00pm kickoff!

This was of course a League 1 fixture last season, both clubs suffered relegation. Swindon had a summer of turmoil where at one point they had about six players on the books...things seemed to have stabilised somewhat now with them sitting 8th in the early table. They are unbeaten away from home in all competitions this season too.

After John Sheridans less than successful spell in charge last season, a new manager is now at the helm. Ben Garner, who himself had a less than auspicious spell at Bristol Rovers, took the reigns at the West Country side and has recorded 4 wins in his nine games so far.

A whole rake of players left over the summer including former Cobblers Hallam Hope and Christopher Missilou, as well as Brett Pitman, Joel Grant and Scott Twine. Replacements have come in...they include former Cobblers loanee keeper Lewis Ward, former MK player Ben Gladwin and loanees Anthony Gordon (Everton) and Tyreese Simpson (Ipswich).

Simpson has two goals this season, top scorer though is diminutive midfielder Jack Payne with three.

In 107 previous meetings between the two clubs Swindon hold the upper hand, 49 wins to our 36. they have won 4 and drawn three of their previous 10 visits to Sixfields. A Simon Cox hattrick helped them to a 4-3 win on our patch back in 2009 in the highest scoring game of recent times.

Last season we shared 2-1 home wins....ours thanks to Missilou and Danny Rose's first goal in Cobblers colours back in October 2020, the return game saw Ryan Watson give us the lead before we fell to eventual defeat. The previous season both games finished with 1-0 away wins.....a Jordan Lyden goal gave Swindon the points at Sixfields after Andy Williams had scored our goal in the win at their ground. Going back another season both games finished 1-1. The Swindon scorers in those games were both ex-Cobblers...Matty Taylor at the County Ground and Keshi Anderson at Sixfields.

Brett Huxtable is the man in the middle.....10 yellows in his three games this season. Last season he gave out 95 cards in 28 games (91 yellow and 4 red) and reffed our derby date with Peterborough in October, a game we lost 2-0 and which saw bookings for Hoskins, Korboa and Watson. His last Swindon assignment was their 1st round EFL Cup defeat to Charlton in September 2020.

Between now and the end of October we have a great opportunity to establish ourselves at the top of the table. We have 8 games with 5 of those at home and after Swindon the only other game against any of the other current top 10 is our away game at Hartlepool.

I assume to minimise Swindon supporters buying home tickets given they have sold out their allocation

Hopefully 3 points, but I think this maybe a draw. UTC
