            Swindon vs Barrow Prediction, Tips & Stats

            Swindon welcome Barrow to the County Ground this weekend, with the visitors looking to extend their excellent run of form. Last season, the two matches saw just one goal, with this exact fixture ending 0-0. 

            Swindon 

            The 2-1 win over Mansfield and the 4-3 victory against Accrington Stanley should have been the turning point for Swindon after failing to win any of their eight games prior, but they were slapped in the face by a 4-0 defeat to Wimbledon last time out. 

            This defensive issue needs to be fixed by Michael Flynn. The Robins have conceded the joint second-most goals this season in League Two, 40, which often makes their impressive attacking work useless. Astonishingly, they’ve scored the joint most goals in the league, 42. This lack of consistency has put Swindon in ninth place with 30 points. 

            Barrow 

            Unlike their hosts this weekend, Barrow boast a perfect record over the last five matches in the league, and you have to go back to the 3rd of October for their last defeat in League Two. This run has put them in third place with 27 points and a 50% win rate. However, the Bluebirds may have to increase their output of 1.35 goals per game on average if they are to challenge for the title. 

            Barrow are particularly strong defensively, and they have conceded the fewest goals this season, 16. We saw this security last time out, as they cruised to a 2-0 home victory over Walsall. 

            Verdict? 

            The heavy scorers take on the solid defenders this week, which always leads to an interesting spectacle. Barrow boast the second-best away record in the league, and Swindon have won six of their nine home matches. This tie will be close. 

            The final prediction is Swindon 1-1 Barrow.

            Jake Young is the League Two top scorer with 16 goals, and he will start in attack at the weekend. Daniel Kemp will support him and look to add to his tally of eight assists.

            There are no new injuries to report, so the side that won 2-0 against Walsall should start again. The side will line up in a 3-5-2.
