TOWN make one of their shortest away trips of the season this evening when they take on Brentford.

Kevin MacDonald’s side head to Griffin Park off the back of Saturday’s home draw with Walsall.


Speaking ahead of the match, manager Kevin MacDonald says that the right result is important for Town this evening.

Despite Brentford boasting an impressive home record this term, the Scotsman believes that no team are unbeatable in League One. 

“Ahead of a break from fixtures I think it is important to get the right result,” he said. “Obviously a victory would be perfect for us but as long as we don’t lose, a point away from home would be good.

“They’ve got a very good home record but I think in this division whether you’re at home or away most teams are beating those around them. It’s a very close league and the margins for victory and defeat are very slim.” 


After their win at SN1 in November, the Bees remained unbeaten over the Christmas and New Year period until their tasted defeat at home to Tranmere Rovers. 

Since then, Uwe Rosler’s side have only won three of their eight league games and exited the FA Cup at the hands of West London rivals Chelsea, despite taking the Premier League giants to a replay at Stamford Bridge.  

After two successive wins, the Bees were beaten 1-0 at Stevenage in midweek and lost 2-0 at Carlisle on Saturday.


Clayton MacDonald’s strike was the difference between the sides at The County Ground in November as the Bees returned to London with a 1-0 victory.

Town’s last visit to Griffin Park yielded a 1-0 win thanks to a strike from Calvin Andrew. 

Grant Smith was the Swindon scorer the last time Swindon lost in West London. A goal from Deon Burton levelled the tie before future Ireland international Stephen Hunt sealed the win for the home side.
