Swindon may have lost the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final but boss Paolo Di Canio won’t allow his players to feel sorry for themselves and it’s easy to see them bouncing back with a victory as they entertain Bristol Rovers.
The Robins, Ladbrokes’ 1/2 favourites, have a four point lead at the top of the table and haven’t failed to win a league match on their own patch since late October, a run that extends to eleven consecutive victories in the County Ground.
The only team to have beaten Swindon in their own backyard this season is Oxford and having now moved into play-off contention by taking ten points from their last available dozen, the U’s are worth backing this weekend at 4/6 with Coral, as they welcome Morecambe to the Kassam Stadium.
Completing a tasty treble of potential home victories are Shrewsbury, a 4/5 chance at bet365 to pick up a third straight win and simultaneously end Aldershot’s recent, decent run.
