Another frustrating away loss leaves Swindon needing to keep up with the Play-Off pack. A win against Hereford will go a long way
Paolo Di Canio told the BBC:
“I think it will be a very tough game because they’ve conceded 21 goals but 16 of them were at home and five away… I told my players to be careful because away from home they are happy just to win a point.”
Swindon Town Team News:
Who knows! Paolo Di Canio likes to chop and change his starting eleven. With the loss at Macclesfield and the make-shift sides win at Exeter in mind… expect changes!
Jake Jervis could start after his two goals on Tuesday night while Lander Gabilondo will be hoping for a place on the bench.
Player to watch: Matt Ritchie
If he and Caddis are on form then Town will no struggle.
