Vital Quotes:

'Even though they're a couple of leagues above us, it's a game that I fancy us to win at the moment as we're looking pretty solid. If they have a bit of an off-day and things go our way then I really think we can turn them over.'

Histon Midfielder Neil Andrews

"I think we have turned a corner as a team this month, and things are looking much brighter now. We need to carry this form into the FA Cup at Histon, and make sure we go into the hat for round two."

Swindon Town Striker Simon Cox

Match Facts & Stats

The match marks the first time the two teams have met in any competitive match.

Match Prediction:

Well this game is going to be a tough one. I would think the match will be pretty evenly matched however as the game goes on Swindon's fitness should shine through. We are going to say a 4-2 Swindon win but our winning goals will come late.
