The Robins have won on their last two visits to this ground, 2-1 both times, and although home results are superior to their away form so far this season, there definitely looks to be some value about backing the visitors at odds-against to avoid defeat.
Luke Williams is now the Swindon head coach in what is his first senior managerial job at the age of just 36, having never even played a senior professional match.
He has worked his way up the ranks behind the scenes, managed Brighton’s reserves and was assistant to Mark Cooper and Martin Ling at Swindon before being given the job on a permanent basis in January following three weeks as caretaker boss.
Apart from a winless spell from mid-March to mid-April he has fared creditably and the Swindon fans will be happy that their team have won both their home matches this season 1-0, most recently last weekend against Port Vale.

A 3-1 defeat at Chesterfield was disappointing but Town gained a commendable point away to Gillingham and also took QPR to a Loftus Road penalty shootout before bowing out of the EFL Cup.
In general, Swindon look good enough to give Peterborough a real test, they have goals throughout their team and look overpriced against their in-and-out hosts.
Peterborough have already lost three times at home this term in the same number of different competitions, going down 1-0 to Bradford in League One, 3-1 to Swansea in the EFL Cup and then 6-1 against Norwich City Under-23s in the revamped Checkatrade Trophy.
They have enjoyed useful victories over Rochdale, Millwall and MK Dons to show what they are capable of, but the lack of consistency must be frustrating manager Grant McCann who was appointed towards the end of last season following a previous caretaker spell at the helm.
Backing Posh at odds-on is clearly a very risky business at home just now and we would much prefer to have the other two options, namely Swindon and the draw, running for us at bigger than even-money.
