Swindon look to maintain their unbeaten run with a tough fixture against Colchester United. A team who have won their last 3 fixtures against Town.

Swindon Town Team News:

Tope Obadeyi has extended his loan spell with Swindon for a further month.

Long term absentees Lee Peacock, Hasney Aljofree and Kurt Hammonds are out while Alan O'Brien misses out with a hamstring injury.

Player to watch: Anthony McNamee

He's been linked to Norwich City recently but the winger appears focused on his Town career.

Talking to the local press this week suggests that he's really up for this fixture to prove his ability to old manager Aidy Boothroyd.

Colchester United Team News:

John White and Matt Heath played for Southend against Swindon a couple of weeks ago, both have since returned to Colchester and could feature again.

Kem Izzet is suspended while Pat Baldwin and Paul Reid are injured.

Aidy Boothroyd has named a 20 man squad for the trip to Wiltshire, the players in bold either started or were used as a sub in their draw with Southampton last week.

Williams (GK), White, Tierney, Okuonghae, Vincent, Wordsworth, O'Toole, Platt, Lisbie, Heath, Vernon, Cousins (GK), Lockwood, Ifil, Maybury, Fox, Hackney, Elito, Guy, Gillespie.

Player to watch: John-Joe O'Toole

The Ireland Under-21 international once attracted the attention of Premier League scouts when he first featured for Watford but stagnated somewhat post-Boothroyd at Vicarage Road.

He could prove quite a threat at this level.
