THE Swindon Advertiser has teamed up with Checkatrade, official title sponsor of the Checkatrade Trophy, to offer five lucky fans the chance to win a pair of tickets to Swindon Town’s Checkatrade Trophy group-stage clash with Newport County on Tuesday, September 11.

Town will be aiming to get their Trophy campaign back on track after suffering a 4-0 defeat to Chelsea’s U21s outfit earlier this month and you can be there to watch all of the action live.

Newport also proved a thorn in the side of the Wiltshire side last season, claiming a 1-0 win at the County Ground last November - courtesy of former Swindon player Ben Tozer’s goal - and completing a League Two double with a 2-1 win in south Wales in April.

These two last met in this competition back in September 2015 when Town progressed 7-6 on penalties in Newport after a 1-1 draw.

For your chance to win, simply answer the following question
