STFC: Town vs. Argyle (FA Cup History)
Plymouth Argyle at Home Park. Alas, this draw was probably one of the worst possible scenarios that Danny Wilson's side could have been given and here we are!
This will be the 99th fixture between the two sides in ALL competitions. Swindon have won 33, lost 44 and drawn 21.
Our last three encounters have all resulted in narrow defeats for Swindon (including the last gasp 3-2 loss to Argyle at the County Ground earlier this season).
However, Swindon and Plymouth have rarely played eachother in the F.A. Cup but when they have it's resulted in an Argyle victory.
