On Good Friday the Shrimps welcome title-chasing Swindon Town and their boss Paolo di Canio to the Globe Arena.


Paolo di Canio. West Ham legend has had an eventful first season in management. Has taken the Robins to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final and has led them to the top of League 2.

One to watch

Matt Ritchie. The former Portsmouth wide man pulls the strings for Di Canio’s side and has 10 goals from midfield in all competitions this season. Was the subject of a failed £500,000 bid from Bournemouth in December.


Swindon’s 3-0 victory at the County Ground was the first Football League meeting between the two sides. The Robins cruised to victory thanks to goals from Jake Jervis, Raffaele De Vita and Ronan Murray.
