The Town's first meeting with Walsall came in the Rushden Charity Cup in 1896 - after hammering Upton Park 7-0 in the First Round, Swindon met their match in the Second - Walsall running out as 6-2 winners. The first League match came in 1927, when Walsall were moved from the Division Three North section to the South - Harry Morris scoring a hat-trick in a 5-0 win for the Town, which to date remains the highest score against the Saddlers. Morris repeated his goalscoring feat in the next home game - notching three again as Swindon won 5-1.

Town forward Trevor Anderson scored an unusual hat-trick against Walsall in 1976 - all of his three goals coming from the penalty spot after some generous refereeing from renowned homer Lester Shapter. David Moss and David Syrett scored the other two, as the Town strolled to a 5-1 win - a crucial result in the penultimate game of the season, in which Swindon avoided relegation by just one point.

On the final day of the 2006/07 season, Walsall visited Swindon for a top-of-the-table clash - the Saddlers needing victory to wrap up the League Two title, and the Town needing a point to secure promotion in third place. Swindon took the lead early in the second half through a Jerel Ifil header, Walsall equalising in the dying moments through a wonder strike from Dean Keates. When Hartlepool failed to win against Bristol Rovers, it meant that both sides had cause for celebration, and a party atmosphere reverberated around a full house at the County Ground.
