Swindon Town entertain Chesterfield this afternoon at the County Ground, in a must win game if they are to have any chance of beating the drop to League Two.
“At the moment we can’t finish a football match. We just have to get on with it and see it through with the kids. Hopefully we can patch up one or two of the senior players because the younger players need our support.'
Chesterfield Boss - Roy McFarland
Swindon Town will be without the services of Paul Smith who is still out with an ankle injury. Rhys Evans who has an injured hand will feature today. New striker, Chris McPhee could start up front with Jamie Cureton after striker Lee Peacock picked up a knee injury at Colchester, which is not thought to be serious.
French Midfielder Toumani Diagouraga joined Swindon from Watford earlier this week. He is highly rated and could go right into the team to give the club a lift.
Chesterfield are plagued by injuries. Former Town Favourite, Wayne Allison has had a hamstring problem so may not feature. Steve Blatherwick left last weeks game early with a back injury. Captain Shane Nicholson requires knee surgery while Gareth Davies, Reuben Hazell and goalkeeper Barry Roche are also on the injured list. Former Town loanee Colin Heath, who scored for Swindon earlier this season against Yeovil could feature.
The creative midfielder on loan from Tottenham is very highly rated. He previously had been at Arsenal and Chelsea and has played for England Under 16,17 and 18's. Scored his first of 3 goals this season in his debut for Chesterfield at Doncaster Rovers.
Swindon Town and Chesterfield drew 1-1 on 28th December with Hameur Boazza the goal scorer for the Robins.
1-1 Town desperatly need to start winning but given current form a draw would be a good result.
Saturday 8 April 2006 at the County Ground against Hartlepool United.
PLEASE NOTE: The Swansea City away fixture on 1 April has been moved to 11 April due to the Swans featuring in the LDV Final on the 2nd of April.
