Swindon's statistics don't make happy reading for Notts County
THE task facing Notts County this afternoon at the County Ground is not an easy one.
The Magpies face a Swindon Town outfit who have scored the most goals of any side in the league this season, with 63.
Another interesting statistic is that Swindon have conceded the fewest goals of any side in the league this season at 29.
Coupled together, this makes for a difficult clash for both the Notts attack and defence against a side three points off Doncaster in top spot and nine above Chris Kiwomya's 11th-placed side.

Swindon have also only conceded 13 times at home from 19 games this season and face a Notts side who are short of goals themselves – having scored only four times in their last six games.
"They have got a good forward line in their team and that is their big strength, so we have to be on our guard," commented Kiwomya.
"It's about looking at their strong points but also looking at their weaknesses. We spend time looking at both of those things, but we've got enough good players in our ranks to cause them problems and if we can get the consistency I'm trying to look for over the 90 minutes then we should be a good match for them.
"They've got good forwards and we've got to be alive to that, but we've also got to take the game to them because otherwise we'd be defending for the whole game.
"We've got good attacking and defensive players in our team so hopefully we'll get that blend right."
With another tough game against Brentford to follow, and then the visit of Yeovil on Bank Holiday Monday, Notts can take points off some of their play-off rivals in the next ten days.
"Every game we want to win, so therefore every game is a much-needed win," added Kiwomya. "Hopefully we can go to Swindon, which will be a very tough game, and give a good account of ourselves."
