When Port Vale recorded their biggest ever victory over Swindon in 1960, the 6-1 result had far reaching consequences. Some four years after the match, Jimmy Gauld - the Town's goalscorer that day - admitted that he had helped to fix the match and many others, in selling his story to the Sunday People newspaper for £7,000. As the Town's club record signing at the time, it was somewhat of a surprise that Gauld was released at the end of the season, shortly after the game with Vale - he was eventually jailed for being the ringleader of the match-fixing group, along with other ex-Town players David Layne and Jack Fountain. In the very next match between the teams, Swindon got some revenge by recording their own biggest victory against Vale - Bobby Woodruff scoring a hat-trick in a 6-0 win.

The two sides first met in the FA Cup back in 1906, when Burslem Port Vale, as they were then known, travelled to the County Ground for a tie in the Fifth Qualifying Round, returning to the Potteries with a 2-1 victory and a place in the First Round proper.
