Swindon Town welcome Burnley to the County Ground this evening for our Capital One Cup clash under the floodlights.
“I`ve watched the clips. I don`t know exactly his record but every two games I see him celebrate so it means he`s on fire.
“He`s not a very elegant player to watch but he`s a competitive guy, he`s got physical presence, in the box he`s a killer and we have to be really careful.
Paolo Di Canio on Charlie Austin
Swindon Town Team News:
Troy Archibald-Henville is set to start in defence as Darren Ward is cup tied by Millwall. Giles Coke and Adam Rooney will miss the match as they are cup tied by their parent clubs.
Player to watch: Alan McCormack
Austin is dangerous as we all know, it’s up to him to get his defence sorted to keep Charlie off the score sheet.
Burnley Team News:
Junior Stanislas, Jason Shackell and Michael Duff are likely to miss the match through injury. Cameron Stewart won’t play as he is cup tied by parent club Hull City.
Player to watch: Charlie Austin
Who else is it going to be? Austin will almost certainly score against Town, most former Town players do. Just how many he scores remains to be seen and if he will celebrate.
