Swindon and Coventry met in the final of one of the least-known competitions in 1935, when they both reached the Division Three (South) Cup final - an early forerunner of today's Football League Trophy competition. A two-legged affair, Coventry took a healthy lead into the second leg after winning 2-0 at the County Ground, eventually winning the match 5-2 on aggregate. Coventry were one of the few sides that Swindon registered a victory over in the Premiership season of 1993/94, when a hat-trick for the revitalised Jan Fjortoft inspired the Town to a 3-1 win in February, during a period where hopes were raised that the Town might lift themselves away from the bottom of the table. A month earlier, the fixture at Highfield Road was hastily arranged to be shown live on Sky TV after their original match was postponed - then, after dominating for long periods, the Sky Blues took the lead through ex-Town loanee Roy Wegerle after 76 minutes. The television pictures were lost just before the end of the game - and Sky returned to the presenter of the show, Richard Keys (himself a Coventry fan) - as they discussed a deserved victory for the Sky Blues in the studio, word got back that the Town had equallised - Andy Mutch netting an injury time goal to rescue a point for Swindon.
