In 2004, Swindon staged an amazing comeback against Sheffield Wednesday, coming back from two goals down with twelve minutes to go, to win the game 3-2. With future Town boss Paul Sturrock managing the side, and future Town players Patrick Collins and Jon-Paul McGovern in the starting line-up, Wednesday took a two goal lead just past the hour mark. With twenty minutes remaining, manager Andy King made a double substitution, taking both full-backs off and reverting to a 3-4-3 formation - eight minutes later, the Town pulled a goal back through Brian Howard. With just four minutes to go, Sam Parkin equallised, and the comeback was completed two minutes later, when sub Rory Fallon grabbed the winner to spark jubliant scenes at the County Ground. During the Town's Premier season in 1993/94, the two matches with Wednesday proved controversial. In both games, Owls striker Gordon Watson was the villain of the piece, twice injuring Swindon's keeper - in the first match at the end of December 1993, the Town went in at half-time with a 2-1 lead, when with twenty minutes remaining, a clash between Watson and Fraser Digby left the Swindon custodian with a dislocated shoulder. Playing on, Watson scored to level the game - Digby was replaced by Nicky Hammond, and Hammond's next task was to pick the ball out of the net again as Watson made it 3-2. Craig Maskell struck back in injury time for the Town, as the game ended in a 3-3 draw. In the return match, Watson was again involved as this time Hammond succumbed to injury - two minutes later, Watson scored past Hammond's replacement, Paul Heald, to give Wednesday a 1-0 win.
