The first leg of the play-off semi-finals in League Two take place this weekend as Swindon get the first tie underway at the County Ground with them coming into the side as the sixth-placed team just behind Port Vale's fifth-place finish.
The chaotic end to the League Two final day saw every side in the play-off spots move places in what was perhaps the most memorable end to a League Two season ever witnessed. Mansfield Town drew 2-2 with Forest Green which meant Swindon leapt ahead of them, which set up this tie with Port Vale as opposed to Mansfield. However, based on the final day of the campaign, Ben Garner's men do come into the game in better goalscoring form, as they hammered Walsall 3-0 away from home, with Jack Payne netting twice after Harry McKirdy's early goal.
At the same time, Port Vale edged past Exeter City in one of the most stunning results of the season on the final day, with Darrell Clarke's men winning 1-0 away from home thanks to a goal from Jame Wilson once more. It meant Forest Green won the title, and it also rocketed Port Vale into sixth to set up this tie.
The most amazing thing about Port Vale's win against Exeter wasn't just their famous win over Exeter, but how it also ended a run of three games without a win after they lost to Bristol Rovers, Walsall and Newport County by shipping seven goals and scoring only two.
The Robins have been running through the division in the past two months as they have beaten Harrogate Town 4-1, Hartlepool 3-0, Forest Green 2-1, and Barrow 2-1 before their final day of the season win over Walsall. It makes them one of the most in-form sides in the division and also puts them as the favourites to win here at 6/5, but as the underdogs to win the semi-finals over two legs as they are 1/1 compared to Vale's 8/11 price.
It's likely to be a game with goals, but only two of Vale's last six games have seen over 2.5 goals, while Swindon are looking to get the edge on them ahead of a trip to Vale Park. Swindon, however, won 3-1 the last time out and will be confident they can et the job done here once more.
