Swindon host Southend in what will be yet another 'must win'...

Vital Quotes:

Talking BBC Radio Swindon, Town boss Danny Wilson feels that his men are capable of some wins, he said that 'five wins is not beyond us at any stretch of the imagination, but we have to get that. We want the first one as soon as possible and if it's against Southend that will be a great tonic for us.

Swindon Town Team News:

Phil Smith should remain in goal after replacing the dropped Peter Brezovan at Leeds.

Lee Peacock, Hasney Aljofree and Barry Corr are all out for the season while Pat Kanyuka, Craig Easton, K-Y Casal and Jon-Paul McGovern are all out.

Lloyd Macklin could also feature after impressing for the reserves on Monday against Southampton.

Mesnwhile Hal Robson-Kanu will celebrate signing a new deal with Reading by facing the club he featured for earlier in the season.

Player to watch: Lloyd Macklin

Give him a go! Why not? The youngster scores often in the youths and has grabbed a few in the reserves yet can't get close to a poor first team.

Obviously Simon Cox is our only major threat.

Southend United Team News:

Ex-Town keeper Steve Mildenhall is doubtful so Ian Joyce should start.

Alan McCormack is struggling while Alex Revell and Dougie Freedman are both definately out.

Player to watch: Lee Barnard

The striker that Andy King was once so desperate to bring in on loan from Spurs.

We missed out and he went on to become quite a decent lower league player.

Match Facts & Stats

In our previous fixture with Southend ended with the Shrimpers taking all 3 points at Roots Hall in a 2-1 win.

Alex Revell put Southend in the lead after 11 minutes before Billy Paynter equalised on the hour mark.

However, in typical Town fashion we surrendered the points with sub Francis Laurent scoring the winner just over 10 minutes later.

Since 2005 Swindon have played Southend six times and have lose all of them!

Bart Griemink, Steve Mildenhall, Tommy Mooney, Billy Paynter, Chris Ramsey, Norman Uprichard and Nicky Nicolau are among those who have played for both clubs.
