After a turbulent week at the County Ground, our attention now turns to tomorrow’s fixture against Notts County.
‘Obviously Dennis has a contract with us and we do not want him to leave. But if a Premiership or Championship club comes along then let’s hear what they have to say.’
Willie Carson on Dennis Wise’s potential departure from Swindon
Notts County Team News:
Notts County head into the game sixth in the League 2 table. Notts County will have no injury worries with Kevin Pilkington, Dan Gleeson, David Pipe, Alan White, Dan Martin, Andy Parkinson and Jason Lee all returning for County. Notts County beat Middlesborough 1-0 during the week in their Carling Cup Round 2 clash.
Player to watch: Mike Edwards
The Notts County Captain will want to replicate the form he has showed all season. Edwards is a play maker and a vocal captain. Edwards was a key player during Notts County’s 1-0 over Premiership side Middlesborough.
Swindon Town Team News:
I’m sure everyone know’s about the Bill Power situation therefore we will omit that and get on to the team news. Swindon started the season 6-0 however they have lost 2 of their last 3 games. Town will be boosed by the news Andy Monkhouse, Jamie Vincent and Jack Smith could all return. Andy Gurney, Gus Poyet, Dennis Wise, Paul Ince and Gareth Whalley will not feature.
Player to watch: All Of Them
The team needs to rally and be strong during this time of crisis. Despite all the rumours and speculation the club really need to win this game for the fans who have had a tough week.
Match Facts & Stats
The last Time the 2 teams played was during the 2004-05 season when Notts County humiliated Swindon live on TV by beating them in their FA Cup replay. The last time Town travelled to the City of Nottingham was last season to which they were hammered 7-1 by Nottingham Forest.
It’s hard to predict. With all the problems at the club during the last week or so you would think that Swindon would be at a disadvantage. I am going to say 1-1 draw.
