Swindon continue the quest for 3 points. Scunthorpe will provide tough opposition.

Danny Wilson Quotes:

'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

Swindon Town Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Simon Cox

Team Cox & Paynter are doing an adequate job up front and hopefully they can get goals against Scunthorpe.

Scunthorpe United Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Gary Hooper

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.
