Town continue their probable march to Division 4 with a home clash with Hartlepool United.
David Prutton talking to the Evening Advertiser
‘Do I stand here and make pessimistic comments about not staying up or being doomed? Or do I try to maintain an air of positivity? I am sure there are a section of fans that are looking at it from the worst possible scenario, but I am sure there are a section of the fans that will be saying ‘come on lets believe in it and see what we can do`.’
Swindon Town Team News:
What can Paul Hart do? He told the Evening Advertiser that Swindon ‘need a win, I keep saying it, for everybody; the supporters, the players and me’.
An obvious statement but Paul Hart has the same players available to him that has failed to win in what feels like an eternity.
Palace loanee Alassane N’Diaye could make his full debut while Vincent Pericard is still injured and Milan Misun is on his summer holidays!
Player to watch: Alessane N’Diaye
Let us see what the big man can do.
Hartlepool United Team News:
Thankfully, Hartlepool have some pretty decent players ruled out for this game so YOU NEVER KNOW!
Top scorer Antony Sweeney has ankle problem, as fellow forward James Brown.
Defender Neil Austin has a calf injury and will miss out.
Player to watch: Andy Monkhouse
Likes to score against Swindon. Town fans like to hate the former Town midfielder.
Apparently he’ll be up front for Hartlepool today.
