The first ever meeting between the two was in the 1958/59 season when they shared the points in a 0-0 draw in a Third Division clash.

It was another fifteen seasons before their next meeting, when they shared the points in a 2-2 draw.

They met another two times during the 1980`s with Swindon winning 2-1 in 83/84 before sharing the points in the 86/87 season with a 1-1 draw.

It was another eighteen seasons before the met again and they have met three times since the turn of the century.

They shared the points in a 1-1 draw in the 2004/05 season. Greg Blundell had given Rovers a first half lead but a goal inside the final twenty minutes by Sam Parkin salvaged a point for the home side.

The following season, Swindon took all three points in a 2-1 win. Ricky Shakes and Charlie Comyn-Platt had given Swindon a two-goal lead before on loan striker Ross McCormack pulled a goal back for Rovers.

The last time they met was in the promotion season of 2007/08. Rovers won 2-1 on their way to the double over Swindon.

Rovers claimed all three points when Lewis Guy scored with nineteen minutes remaining.
