22 March ~ On Saturday promotion-chasing Swindon Town take on Notts County at home. The Robins have struggled to find form since Paolo di Canio resigned and will want to keep hopes of automatic promotion alive. In October 1992 the two teams met at the County Ground in the old Division One. Player-manager Glenn Hoddle led Swindon to a 5-1 win, with Nicky Summerbee and debutant full-back Kevin Horlock among the goalscorers. Notts County finished 17th but Swindon went on to gain promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs. The following season was their only year in the top division.
