Swindon Town vs. Brentford

County Ground, Swindon

22 April 2006

3 PM

UP NEXT: Brentford

Swindon Town host Brentford this afternoon at the County Ground in the latest of crucial matches to try and ensure Swindon beats the drop to League Two.

Iffy Onuora's View

“We want to keep that momentum going from the Scunthorpe game on Monday and be positive as we know we’ve another tough assignment.”

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon pretty much go into the game with a full squad. Christian Roberts will not feature, and Gareth Whalley and Aaron Brown are questionable. It's possible Iffy Onuora will name an unchanged team this afternoon at the County Ground. Paul Smith and Lee Peacock will play through injury's.

Player to watch: Paul Smith

Smith should be captain in my opinion. Most games we play with him we end up doing well since he arrived from Gillingham. He is passionate and vocal, and playing through injury. Swindon climbed to 16th with Smtih playing. When he went out with injury, Town dropped back down the table.

Brentford Team News:

Brenford currently sit in third in League One. Brentford defender Kevin O'Connor could return after an ankle injury that has kept him out since February after training with the club this week. Midfielder Oli Skulasson will miss the clash with a knee injury.

Player to watch: Lloyd Owusu

Lloyd returned to Brentford the club who gave him his League debut in 1998. During his first tenure at Brentford he went on to score 70 goals in over 160 appearances for the Bee's. He joined Sheffield Wednesday 3 season's ago and since returning has scored 12 goals in league matches this season for Brentford.

Match Facts & Stats

Swindon and Brentford drew 0-0 at Griffin Park earlier in the season on a sunny afternoon. This draw marked the end of Swindon's 10 game losing streak earlier in the season that effectively ended the season before it got started.

Swindon Town will hold a moments silence prior to kick off today. The silence will be in memory of Swindon Town stalwart, Eddie Buckley, who sadly passed away last Saturday. Eddie, 81, had served the Club loyally for the past 40 years, and Swindon and Brentford fans will have the opportunity to pay their own respects to someone who like many others are the backbone of clubs like our own.

Match Prediction:

It is tough to say but I am going to say a 2-1 win to Swindon. If we lose and Yeovil win we are relegated to League Two.

UP NEXT: Bristol City

The Big One.... Swindon Town at Bristol City 29 April 2006. Many fans will make the trip down the road to Ashton Gate hoping we can do the double over City this season.
