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. Brian Stock gave Rovers a first half lead before Simon Cox equalised for the home side in the opening minutes of the second half. Rovers claimed all three points when Lewis Guy scored with nineteen minutes remaining.
