Swindon Town

Huish Park



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...

Vital Quotes: DW

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 Town Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Jonathan Obika

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.

Swindon Town Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Simon Ferry

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!
