History of the Sheffield Wednesday v Swindon Town fixture

Sheff. Wed. prepare to entertain Swindon Town at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Owls are clearly on top, winning 8 and drawing 5 of the 14 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Hillsborough was less than a year ago, in January 2004, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division Two match.
