📝 Match Preview: Swindon Town (A)

All you need to know ahead of Tuesday night's match

20 November 2023

After a break of ten days, the Grecians return to action to face Swindon Town in their final group game of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy.

Whilst both sides are unable to qualify from the group, City will be looking to win the match to put to bed the recent run of poor form, and re-ignite the season.

The match is a 7pm kick-off at the County Ground, if you can't make it it can be streamed on iFollow for just £10.

Cheick Diabate's thoughts

With City on a poor run of form, Diabate is looking forward to the game against Swindon and having an impact on future matches.

"It might not be a league game, but it's another opportunity to get a win and get back on track," he said.

"If we do win, we'll have that monentum and I feel like the morale will be better and we'll get that confidence back. It's important we go there tomorrow and treat it as a league game. If we win tomorrow, that could be the catalyst."

The Stadium

  • Name: The County Ground
  • Capacity: 15,728
  • Year opened: 1892

The County Ground has had a mixed purpose history since being opened to replace The Croft. Thomas Arkell, the owner of Arkell’s Brewery first donated £300 to build a stand at the Wiltshire County Ground, though the funds were enough to build the entire stadium.

During the war the stadium was used as a Prisoner of War camp, with huts built on the pitch to house the German POW’s. In 1951, Swindon Town became the first club to have floodlight’s fitted and the new lamps were first tested against Bristol City in April that year.

In another quirk, the County Ground is the only football stadium in the world to have a Rolex clock, which was erected in 1963.

Previous Encounter

Exeter City 3 Swindon Town 1 (March 8, 2022) EFL Sky Bet League Two

Exeter City returned to winning ways by claiming all three points in a one-sided victory under the Tuesday night lights.

First half goals from Jevani Brown and Jonathon Grounds gave the Grecians a comfortable advantage going into the break with little to trouble the hosts back line. An 82nd minute goal from skipper Matt Jay allowed City to put the match to bed, despite a late consolation for Swindon with an impressive curling shot from substitute Jack Payne finding the top left corner.
