The County Ground
Swindon continue the quest for 3 points. Scunthorpe will provide tough opposition.
'It's great to come back home. We've had some tough games away from home with a lot of travelling.
'To come back to our own pad will hopefully be a big boost for us.
'I'm sure there will be a good turnout because the fans haven't seen many games here over the last month or so.
'Let's hope we can all be really excited about the situation and have a really good result as well at the end of it.'
- Danny Wilson talking to BBC Radio Swindon
Loan players Hal Robson-Kanu and Gordon Greer are unlikely to feature tomorrow after picking up injuries at Millwall.
Lee Peacock returns from injury and is available for selection.
Team Cox & Paynter are doing an adequate job up front and hopefully they can get goals against Scunthorpe.
The BBC reports that first team keeper Joe Murphy has groin trouble so his understudy Josh Lillis stands by, but Marcus Williams is out with a metatarsal injury.
Kenny Milne is out while Ben May approaches his return.
The former Grays, Southend and Hereford forward is enjoying his first season at Scunthorpe. He's bagged 16 goals this season and will no doubt be a threat for the Town defence.
The two teams have only met 18 times in competitive fixtures. Swindon have won 7, lost 5 and drawn 6.
