Eventually elected to the league in 1960 after winning the Midland League for five successive seasons, Peterborough had previously come up against Swindon in the vote for election to the league in 1956 - the unwritten rule that League clubs voted for each other ensuring that Swindon won the vote by a 42 to eight margin. That same season, the Town had perhaps earned the vote by knocking Peterborough out of the FA Cup, albeit after drawing the first game at the County Ground.

The most significant match between the two clubs was in 2001, when with Swindon fighting relegation to Division Three, they needed to beat Peterborough to have any realistic chance of staying up. Gary Alexander gave the Town an early lead, and when former Town man Dean Hooper was sent off, things looked to be going Swindon's way. Then with just fifteen minutes remaining, a mix-up between Alan Reeves and goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall resulted in a bizarre own goal, and as the game moved into injury time, the two sides were tied. With seconds remaining, a chipped ball forward from Ian Woan found Danny Invincibile, who struck a sweet left-footed volley past Mark Tyler, to secure victory for Swindon - and over the next week, other results meant that the goal had effectively saved the Town from relegation.
