Danny Wilson will be looking to continue Swindon's unbeaten league streak to five games whereas Terry Skiverton will want his Yeovil side to come back after their 2-1 loss in the JPT at Bournemouth in midweek...
It's reassuring that Danny Wilson still remembers how bad our loss at Yeovil was last season. Swindon were dire at Huish Park when we desperately needed a win.
'Yeovil is a tough place to go and it's a big challenge but it's one we are capable of overcoming.' Wilson told the Swindon Town official website.
Yeovil haven't won since their 2-0 opening day home win against Tranmere Rovers so they'll be really wanting to put an end to that.
Since the Tranmere win, the Glovers have lost to Colchester United (2-1) and Huddersfield Town (2-1) and have drawn with Exeter City (1-1) and Leyton Orient (3-3).
Jean-Paul Kamudimba Kalala has rejoined the club after his release from Oldham Athletic.
Yeovil squad that faced Huddersfield last week
McCarthy, Forbes, Jones (Welsh '71 ), Alcock, Caulker, Smith, Murtagh, Schofield, Mason (O'Callaghan '80), Tomlin (Williams '72), Obika.
SNU: Lindegaard, Stam, Martin, Murray.
Many Town fans wanted Danny Wilson to put in a bid for Obika this summer. However, outside of London, Yeovil appears to be the only place the young forward is willing to play.
New signing Alex Revell should feature at some point.
Wilson is expected to start with the same side that beat Southend last week.
It goes without saying but Peacock and Aljofree are both out.
Despite not playing to his full potential the young Scotsman impressed enough on his debut to earn the man-of-the-match award.
Town fans will be hoping that he will be playing to his full potential soon!
Before 2005 Swindon and Yeovil had only met three times, all three in the F.A. Cup and all of the wins for Swindon.
27/08/05: STFC 4-2 YTFC
The first league meeting came in August 2005. Pablo Bastianini put Yeovil ahead after less than a minutes play before Town equalised through a Terry Skiverton own goal.
Rory Fallon and Colin Heath put Swindon 3-1 up before Skiverton scored at the right end after 87 minutes. Christian Roberts' injury time strike gave Swindon the 4-2 win.
Swindon: Heaton, J. Smith, Ifil, O'Hanlon (Gurney '33), Collins, Heath (Miglioranzi '76), Whalley, Pook, Shakes, Fallon, Cureton (Roberts '76).
Yeovil: Weale, Skiverton, Miles, Jones, Sodje (sent off), Way, Johnson (Gall '78), Amankwaah, Davies (Terry '59), Bastianini, Alvarez (Harrold '67).
11/03/06: YTFC 0-0 STFC
Eurgh, look at that side - it's no wonder we got relegated!
With Swindon desperately needing a win to try and avoid relegation it came as no surprise that the team were unable to get the win as Swindon eventually dropped to League Two.
Yeovil: Collis, Lockwood, Skiverton (Gall '27), Jones, Guyett, Terry, Lindegaard, Poole (Gall '69), Cohen, Harrold (Webb '84), Davies.
Swindon: Evans, Nicholas, O'Hanlon, Gurney, Jenkins (Miglioranzi '67), J. Smith, Brown, Whalley, Pook (Shakes '72), Peacock, Cureton.
09/09/07: STFC 0-1 YTFC
Swindon were promoted while Yeovil narrowly missed out on promotion to the Championship after losing the Play-Off Final to Blackpool.
The Sky Sports cameras turned up and the nation witness a drab encounter which won't matter to Glovers fans as they ended victorious through a Lloyd Owusu goal with just over 10 minutes to go.
Swindon: P. Smith, Vincent, Aljofree, Ifil, J. Smith, Zaaboub, Easton, Pook (Paynter '72), Roberts (McGovern '57), Peacock, Sturrock (Cox '57).
Yeovil: Mildenhall, Jones, Guyett, Forbes, Rose (Lynch '81), Barry, Stewart (Skiverton '90), Jones, Peltier, Owusu, Warne.
26/12/07: YTFC 0-1 STFC
Swindon get revenge for the previous loss with a 1-0 reversal. Barry Corr getting the only goal of the game.
Yeovil: Mildenhall, Jones (Rose '80), Skiverton (sent off), Forbes, Peltier, Dempsey (Barry '76), Warne (Owusu '67), Way, Stieber, Stewart, Walker.
Swindon: Brezovan, Vincent, Aljofree (Nicholas '24), Ifil, Comminges, McGovern, Peacock, Easton, Mohamed (Allen '86), Corr (Paynter '82), Cox.
20/12/08: STFC 2-3 YTFC
A cruel one for Swindon fans as Yeovil go 2-0 up through Alcock and Peltier but the Robins rally back with Timlin and McGovern scoring just in quick succession. However, the comeback is ended with a Jerel Ifil own goal after 72 minutes to give Yeovil the win.
Swindon: Smith, Kennedy (Sturrock '83), Aljofree (Morrison '20), Ifil, Smith, McNamee (Corr '74), Easton, Timlin, McGovern, Cox, Peacock.
Yeovil: Wagenaar, Skiverton, Forbes, Alcock, Smith, Schofield, Warne, Roberts, Peltier, Rodger, Noel-Williams (Tomlin '65).
28/03/09: YTFC 1-0 STFC
As mentioned, a dire Swindon performance as Yeovil win through a Jonathan Obika strike after 33 minutes.
Yeovil: Weale, Forbes, Hutchins, Peltier, Smith, Warne (Murtagh '88), Roberts, Townsend, Noble, Tomlin (Rodgers '78), Obika.
Swindon: P. Smith, J. Smith, Greer, Morrison (Ifil '13), Amankwaah, Robson-Kanu (Kennedy '24), Timlin, Nalis (Pook '76), McNamee, Paynter, Cox.
