Swindon Town vs. Leeds United

County Ground, Swindon


3 PM kick off


Swindon Town welcome Gary McAllister's Leeds United to the County Ground this Saturday in their Coca Cola League One clash.

Vital Quotes:

'My attitude is that we have to give Leeds problems as opposed to trying to contain them.

'It's a home game for us, so there is more onus on us to take the game to Leeds. I'm comfortable with that because I believe we can do it.'

Swindon Town boss Maurice Malpas

Swindon Town Team News:

Barry Corr could be set to return to action after declaring himself fit. Patrick kanyuka will miss the game due to a hamstring injury whilst Jamie Vincent is out indefinitely.

Player to watch: Jerel Ifil

Jerel Ifil has been on fire after scoring 2 goals in 2 games despite being a defender!

Leeds United Team News:

Leeds currently sit sixth in the League One table. Lubomir Michalik is the only Leeds player who is not available for selection after getting sent off in Leeds 5-2 thrashing of rubbish Crewe Alexandra. Town's midfield will have to be at it's best. Leeds midfielder's seem to be chipping in with goals as well including many long ranged efforts.

Player to watch: Jermaine Beckford

Wanted by almost every club in the Championship, Beckford has been class this season as well as last and is always a goal scoring threat.

Match Facts & Stats

- Leeds United beat Swindon Town in both home and away fixtures last season.

- Leeds have sold out their entire away allocation of over 3,000 although many expect close to 4,000 Leeds fans to be at the County Ground with a few snapping up seats in the home end.

Ref Watch:

The referee will be running around the pitch all game giving the decisions to Leeds United fearing the backlash from their 3,000 plus support.

Match Prediction:

Are we showing Leeds too much respect? Perhaps but we can't see us beating Leeds. Would love to be proven wrong but I see a 2-1 away win sadly.
