Recent respective form guides

Peterborough United's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Posh have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Swindon Town's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The Robins's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 7 against.

Peterborough see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League Two, showing a record of 38 points from their 29 games played so far, Swindon Town are currently occupying 2nd spot in their division, gaining 59 points from their 29 games.
