1945

Despite remaining unbeaten in 8 league games Danny Wilson's squad is showing signs of complacency after three 1-1 draws. Next up is Paul Tisdale's Exeter City.

Danny Wilson

In an interview with the official STFC website Danny Wilson has urged his strikers to take their chances.

'There is a time and a place to play, but from a strikers point of view when they see the whites of a goalkeepers eyes let's have a dabble'

Exeter City Team News:

Former Forest Green Rovers hitman Stuart Fleetwood returns to the first team having being forced to sit out of the loss at Charlton Athletic who are still his main employers.

Other than that Paul Tisdale has all his main players available for selection.

Squad that faced Charlton Athletic

Oscar Jansson, Richard Duffy, Danny Seaborne, Rob Edwards, Troy Archibald-Henville, Matt Taylor, Marcus Stewart (Bertie Cozic '83), Ryan Harley, Alex Russell, Craig Noone (Logan '67), Adam Stansfield (Barry Corr '61)

Subs not used: Andy Marriott, Steve Tully, Ben Watson, James Dunne.

Player to watch: Barry Corr

We know all about him and what he can do WHEN FIT. He's likely to start on the substitutes bench but he will be desperate to score against his old team mates.

Swindon Town Team News:

Lee Peacock is close to a return but Alan O'Brien is still out with his hamstring injury.

Danny Wilson is likely to change his strikeforce with Ben Hutchinson likely to return to the first team.

Squad that faced Wycombe Wanderers

David Lucas, Scott Cuthbert, Lescinel Jean-Francois (Callum Kennedy '89), Kevin Amankwaah, Gordon Greer, Jonathan Douglas, Jon-Paul McGovern (Anthony McNamee '75), Simon Ferry (Michael Timlin '65), Billy Paynter, Simon Revell, Tope Obadeyi.

Subs not used: Ben Hutchinson, Sean Morrison, Lloyd Macklin, Phil Smith.

Player to watch: Jonathan Douglas

A key signing and now an integral part of the Swindon Town first team.

When Douglas performs, Swindon do well.

Played for Both Clubs

'Ooh' Shaun Taylor started his football league career with Exeter City when he signed for them from Western League outfit Bideford in 1986.

He played 200 times for the Grecians and helped them gain promotion from the fourth division in the late 80's.

Glenn Hoddle brought him to Swindon Town in 1991 for 200,000 and forged a brilliant partnership with fellow Town favourite Colin Calderwood.

His second season in Wiltshire saw Town clinch promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time in Swindon's history. That season Taylor was inspirational and scored 12 league goals from defence. He also scored the third during the Wembley classic, Swindon's epic 4-3 win over Leicester City.

After 212 games Taylor left for Bristol City for the laughable fee of 50,000. Cheers Steve McMahon.

Taylor is now a youth coach at Exeter City.

Others to have played for both clubs include Martin Ling, Gary Alexander, Jon Gittens, Leigh Barnard, Christian Roberts, Wayne Carlisle and Harry Bowl.

Match Prediction:

Exeter City 1-0 Swindon Town

Next Up:

Swindon travel to Brentford on Saturday October 3rd.
