Swindon have gained a bit of a reputation of being a tad inconsistent in the last decade. Therefore Town fans will be wishin' and a hoping' that Danny Wilson can follow up the superb win against Southampton with a tricky trip to Oldham.
Rob Purdie and Joe Jacobsen miss out while Danny Whitaker should return after illness.
On loan Blackburn Rovers forward Neil Blackman should make his debut at some point during this fixture.
Oldham have a fair few experienced players in their ranks - Sean Gregan, Paweł Abbott and Darren Byfield but it's our young friend Taylor who could cause us the most problems.
Of course Lee Peacock and Hasney Aljofree are still injured but Sean Morrison should be fit after suffering a minor groin strain against Southampton.
Not the most popular Town player but his bid for redemption is getting fast on track after good displays in the last fortnight.
History dictates that this one is a close one to call. Home advantage could prove a significant factor because in the league Swindon and Oldham share an equal record of W 14 D 10 L 14.
Town have had the edge in recent years winning 2 of the last 5 fixtures drawing the other 3.
Our last fixture at Boundary Park was a 0-0 draw. It was probably most noted for the debut of Hamdi Razak who came on, almost got sent-off and almost scored the winner!
31/01/09: OAFC 0-0 STFC
25/10/08: STFC 2-0 OAFC
05/04/08: STFC 3-0 OAFC
26/02/08: OAFC 2-2 STFC
10/12/05: OAFC 2-2 STFC
Among the players who have played for both clubs Don Heath, Steve Mildenhall and Ray Treacy.
Funnily enough his last two Town fixtures have been final day of the season affairs. The first being the 2007/08 season 2-1 win at the County Ground against Millwall. A year later his was the man in the middle for our 2-2 at Peterborough United.
He officiated Chesterfield's 2-1 win over Notts County in midweek.
It's Wolves in midweek and then Swindon welcome Southend to the County Ground a week on Saturday.
