Town welcome out-of-form Southampton to the County Ground. Both sides are desperate to rediscover their form from last season.
Danny Wilson has been quick to dismiss Town’s 3-0 victory over the Saints in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
‘From my point of view doesn’t bother me at all becuase it will be a totally different game to the one we had when we went down there.’
Swindon Town Team News:
Key players Charlie Austin and captain Jonathan Douglas should be fit as will Kevin Amankwaah and David Lucas.
Side that drew 0-0 at Carlisle
Lucas, Cuthbert, Morrison, Kennedy (Sheehan ’53), Amankwaah, Douglas, McGovern, Timlin (O’Brien ’73), Ferry, Pericard (Ball ’64), Austin
Subs not used: Jean-Francois, Dossevi, Prutton, Smith,
Player to watch: CHARLIE AUSTIN
It should prove to be quite a tense encounter so when as opportunity comes up it’s important for our attackers to pounce. Austin remains our major threat.
Southampton Team News:
Lee Barnard is still suspended after his sending off against Swindon in the JPT.
Adam Lallana will miss out.
Side that lost 2-0 to Rochdale
Davis, Harding, Butterfield, Fonte, Martin, Hammond, Puncheon, Schneiderlin, Oxlade-Chamberlain (Mills 71′), Lambert, Connolly (Do Prado 61′)
Subs not used: Jaidi, Dickson, Bialkowski, Wotton, Garrod
Player to watch: RICKIE LAMBERT
They might be struggling but let us be honest, he’s a threat.
