Coventry City take on Swindon Town at the Ricoh this Saturday looking to claim their second consecutive league victory after beating Blackpool, last week.
The fixture has a long history stretching back to the very first meeting between the clubs 107 years ago in the Southern League First Division. That game in December 1908, ended in a 1-1 draw. However, since then City and the Robins have go onto win the fixture on 24 occasions each, drawing 20 times.
