3PM

UP NEXT: Rotherham United

This Saturday Swindon Town welcome Alan knill's struggling Rotherham United to the County Ground for a battle of relegation rivals.

Vital Quotes:

'We must not rest our laurels'

'I'm pleased with the position. But the reality says we have to do it all again,'

'Rotherham will be another tough game. We'll sit down and go through this win before starting again.'

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon Town are currently on a high after finally getting out of the relegation zone with a 1-0 win over Gillingham at the County Ground on Tuesday. Charlie Comyn-Platt will not be available and Striker Trevor Benjamin and midfielder Paul Smith will face a late fitness test.

Player to watch: Lee Peacock

Peacock has shown pace and put in 100% effort in every game, however, has just fell short of notching his second goal for Town. He will be hungry to get on the scoresheet alongside Jamie Cureton and give the club a little more breathing space in terms of avoiding the drop.

Rotherham United Team News:

This season has been an absolute nightmare for Rotherham United on and off the field. Rotherham who were relegated from The Championship last season announced last week they need to find 1M in the next few weeks or go into liquidation. They also sacked Manager Mick Harford early in the season. Rotherham now find them selves in the relegation zone again. Rotherham beat Bournemouth 2-0 earlier on in the week, however missed 2 penalties.

Player to watch: Lee Williamson

The former Mansfield Town and Rotherham fan favourite will be looking to stop Swindon's fine home form. With Rotherham not having many attack options, The experience Williamson is probably the Millers best goal threat followed closely by Colin Murdock.

Match Facts & Stats

Swindon Town beat Rotherham 1-0 thanks to a Rory Fallon Strike earlier in the season. There is also talk of a Bucket Collection being held by the Rotherham United Supporters Trust (R.U.S.T) outside the County Ground on Saturday.

Ref Watch:

Referee's and official's for this fixture are, D D Bushnell, JJ Linington and A M Penn. The Fourth official will be R G James

Match Prediction:

Rotherham are playing so poorly this season and with Swindon's current home form we have to say a, 2-1 Swindon Win would be realistic.

Next Fixtures:

Saturday 25th February at Nottingham Forest at the City Ground 3 p.m. PLEASE NOTE: This fixture is all ticket for Swindon Town supporters
