Brentford pack their bags to visit Swindon Town at County Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 22 and win only 8 of the 40 games.
The previous match played between the two at County Ground was within the last three years, in September 2007, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 1 thriller, in a (Associate Members) match.
