Swindon and Tranmere clashed twice after the regular season in the 1990's - once off the pitch, and once on it. After Swindon were demoted two divisions for illegal payments to players in 1990, Tranmere were originally one of the beneficiaries - being selected for promotion to Division Two after they had lost their play-off final to Notts County. When Swindon were reinstated to Division Two on appeal, Tranmere had to remain in the Third Division for another season.

Just three years later though, after Tranmere were promoted, the two clubs met in the playoff semi-finals, this time contesting for a place in the newly created Premiership. Swindon made an amazing start to the game, scoring twice in the opening three minutes at the County Ground - eventually going on to win the first leg 3-1. Three days later, Swindon travelled to Birkenhead for the second leg, returning with a 5-4 aggregate win to take them to the final at Wembley where they gained the promotion to the top flight that had been denied to them previously.
