Forget everything that may sway you from thinking that this match isn’t a crucial must win… Because it is!
Anything other than a Swindon victory against lowly (meaning lower than us) Cheltenham is a failure. To be honest such a statement goes without saying!
Talking to press Swindon boss Danny Wilson has magnified the importance of the game, ‘I suppose every game’s a ‘must-win’ because of where we find ourselves, but the way we’re playing there’s no reason why we can’t win the game’ he told BBC Radio Swindon.
Swindon Town Team News:
Patrick Kanyuka, J-P McGovern and Craig Easton are all doubtful as is Lee Peacock.
Barry Corr (shoulder) and Hasney Aljofree (knee) won’t feature for Swindon until next season – if they are still at the County Ground.
Player to watch: Simon Cox
I don’t need to say why anymore!
Cheltenham Town Team News:
Cheltenham have lost the services of Lloyd Owusu who has joined Brighton on loan and defender Chris Westwood who has returned to Peterborough after his loan spell expired.
Experienced defender Drissa Diallo and local midfielder are doubtful as are Michael Townsend, Marley Watkins and Michail Antonio.
Player to watch: Scott P Brown
Shane Higgs had a knack for playing well against Swindon. Scott P. Brown is a well repected goalkeeper with the job of keeping Town at bay this evening.
