Swindon Town v Millwall - the stats

24 March 2017

All you need to know ahead of Saturday's trip...

Millwall travel to Swindon Town this weekend looking to keep up their unbeaten run in the League, currently standing at 16 games.

Only defeat at Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in the Emirates FA Cup Quarter-Finals has dirtied The Lions form book in the last 20 games and Neil Harris' side will look to continue their good form at the County Ground in the early kick-off (1.30pm).

Both teams have different aspirations as the campaign begins to reach its climax. The Robins are entrenched in Sky Bet League One's relegation zone, whilst Millwall will be looking to break back into the Play-Off places with little over a month to go.

Swindon Town and The Lions are no strangers, with Saturday's meeting acting as the 96th between the two. 

Earlier this season, a Lee Gregory double handed Millwall supporters an extra Christmas present on Boxing Day in a 2-0 victory.

The Den saw the same score-line in October 2015, as Gregory was once more on target along with Aiden O'Brien in an incredibly one-sided affair.

Controversy reigned in the return fixture at the County Ground, as, after Gregory and Steve Morison had sent The Lions two to the good once more, Nicky Ajose's penalty and Michael Doughty's 90th-minute equaliser ensured a share of the spoils.

With 38 wins to Swindon's 29, Millwall hold the upper hand over their opponents.

The most important - and famous - victory over The Robins came on 29th May 2010, as captain Paul Robinson's 39th-minute goal secured promotion to The Championship in the League One Play-Off Final at Wembley Stadium.

The two clubs shared a point-a-piece in a bad-tempered 1-1 draw earlier that year, with The Lions winning 3-2 on the final day of the regular season to set up a Play-Off Semi-Final showdown with Huddersfield Town.

Swindon's last victory over Millwall on their own patch came in May 2008, as a Simon Cox penalty and Anthony McNamee handed the home side a 2-1 win.

The Lions' front three of Gregory, Morison and O'Brien will look to add to their ever-growing goal tallies this weekend and will aspire to echo the two occasions in which Millwall have hit The Robins for six.

Tony Tagg and John Lyons each bagged a brace in a 6-2 victory in March 1980, whilst George Stobbart helped himself to a hat-trick in a 6-1 win in October 1953.
