...Swindon face another tricky away day against Millwall.

Vital Quotes:

Danny Wilson talking to BBC Radio Swindon

'We've proved to a few people that we're a decent team, we can play and we are gaining confidence as games come along.

'The players have to ignore the table because if you keep looking at it it's not going to do anything for you - it doesn't make good reading because we're too close to the relegation area.

'But it doesn't tell a true picture of the confidence that's surrounding the camp at the moment.'

Millwall Team News:

Scotsman Marc Laird is predicted to replace the suspended David Martin. While striker Lewis Grabban and defender Paul Robinson are out injured.

Last Millwall Line-Up

XI: Forde, Dunne, Craig, Whitbread, Frampton, Martin, Bolder, Abdou, Henry, Grimes, McLeod

Subs: Pidgeley, Hackett, Laird, Barron, Harris

Player to watch: Zak Whitbread

Born in Houston, Texas - the American-English defender has been in impressive form this season outplaying several of the divisions big name players. Simon Cox will face a tough test tonight.

Swindon Town Team News:

Kevin Amankwaah is likely to keep the right midfielder role and therefore keeping J-P McGovern out of the squad after Amankwaah impressed against Leicester City last Saturday.

Hasney Aljofree and Barry Corr remain long-term absentees.

Last Town Line-Up

XI:
Brezovan, Jack Smith, Ifil, Greer, Vincent, Amankwaah, Timlin, Kanyuka, Robson-Kanu, Paynter, Cox

Subs: Phil Smith, McNamee, Nalis, Lescinel, Razak

Player to watch: Simon Cox

Two hat-tricks on the road this season and easily the stand out player this season for Town.

Could be the 'acid test' this one to see if we are back on track again. Even a defeat doesn't mean we aren't - its the manner of the defeat. Hopefully it won't come to anyway and we'll sneak away with 1 or 3 points.

In a time when we need points desperately it's probably typical that we have Leicester, Millwall and Scunthorpe as a tricky triple. We've shown that we can match the best this division has to offer it's now time to get some wins in! C'mon the Town!
