Another doom and gloom week for many Town fans… Today the side look to calm the hysteria when taking on Yeovil Town.
Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton has pointed out just how important this game is for Danny Wilson’s men.
‘Swindon is a massive game, although I think it’s an even bigger game for them. For them the most important thing is just not to get beat, but for us we’re quite carefree, happy-go-lucky looking above us trying to rein in some teams.’
Swindon Town Team News:
There shall be no Sean Morrison as he’s joining our old rivals Reading.
Andy Frampton is only rated at 50/50 so it looks like a back four of Caddis Cuthbert Jean-Francois and Rose.
It’s also another ‘this could be the last time Charlie Austin puts on a Swindon Town shirt’ game.
Player to watch: Charlie Austin
If you are going… Go out with a bang for goodness sake!
Yeovil Town Team News:
Oli Johnson should make his Yeovil debut after joing on loan from Norwich City.
Jean-Paul Kalala is injured.
Player to watch: Paul Wotton
Not a flair player but an effective one.
