Swindon look to maintain a unbeaten run at Northampton
While talking to BBC Radio Swindon Danny Wilson emphasised that Town were still in major danger of getting relegated: 'I'll keep stressing' stated Wilson 'we've got a hell of a long way to go. We're still in an area where we're very vulnerable and a couple of bad results can put us right back into it.'
Former Town transfer target Adebayo Akinfenwa is expected to play up front while Cobblers captain Chris Doig is out with an achilles injury.
Chelsea loanee Carl Magnay is out so Jason Crowe will deputise.
Was set to sign a 1 year deal with Swindon back in the summer of 2007 until Paul Sturrock withdrew the offer on medical grounds.
He's Northampton's top marksman this season and will no doubt want to add to his tally.
After being injured against Hereford, Jamie Vincent is rated at 50/50 for tonights fixture - Jack Smith will be the obvious replacement if need be.
Patrick Kanyuka and JP McGovern are still struggling and won't play while Peacock, Corr and Aljofree are out for the season.
Cox turned down Northampton in favour of Swindon. He's scoring again and he'll be a major threat.
