It’s been a little bit chaotic post-Bournemouth with Town fans either unhappy or concerned with how Swindon Town’s season is going. Well, then I imagine nobody is confident as Town head to The Valley to take on Charlton Athletic in front of the SkySports cameras
Danny Wilson talking to the Swindon Advertiser after the Bournemouth loss
‘As far as I`m concerned I will soldier on like I always have done, and the players will have to show the same kind of determination that I have and if we can do that we`ll come through this no problem.’
Charlton Athletic Team News:
Former Dagenham and Redbridge favourite Paul Benson was sent-off during the 3-3 draw with Colchester United so he misses out through suspension.
Joe Anyinsah is struggling with a back problem while fellow forward Akpo Sodje could also miss out with a shoulder complaint.

Swindon Town Team News:
Jonathan Douglas sits out as he completes his suspension.
Meanwhile, Alan Sheehan was substituted through injury against Bournemouth so Michael Rose will be on stand-by to replace him if need be.
