'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Brentford vs. Swindon Town

Griffin Park

03/10/09

1500

PREVIEW: BFC vs. STFC

It's FOUR, yes, FOUR 1-1 draws in succession - Danny Wilson will try and get more from his team as they travel to London to take on Brentford, a side who are buzzing from recently victory.

Quotes: Danny Wilson

Talking to the BBC:

'We're disappointed we haven't finished the teams off in the last two games, and we're disappointed to concede late goals in both games.

'But it's been a decent start and were really in the hunt for a top six position, so I've got no worries.'

Brentford Team News:

Carl Cort, Ben Strevens, Ryan Dickson and David Hunt are all expecting to miss out.

Brentford earned themselves an impressive victory over Southend this week and will no doubt keep faith in the side that beat the Shrimpers.

Bull, Foster, Bean, Wilson, Bennett, Phillips, Saunders, Weston, Wood (Kabba '84), O'Connor, MacDonald

Subs not used: Taylor, Price, Osborne, Legge, Ferrell, Blake.

Player to watch: Alan Bennett

The Brentford skipper will do his best to prevent Swindon's strikers from ending their luckless streak.

The former Cork City defender has found his level in League One after failing to establish himself with Reading.

Swindon Town Team News:

Tope Obadeyi is out with a hamstring injury as is Alan O'Brien.

Ben Hutchinson is expected to take Obadeyi's place ahead of Simon Revell. New signing Charlie Austin isn't expected to watch the game from the stands before competing for a first team place.

Player to watch: Ben Hutchinson

If he's given the opportunity to replace Tope Obadeyi in the starting line-up he's got to take it.

Hutchinson has hardly met the expectations the Town fans have anticipated since his arrival from Celtic.

Match Facts & Stats

Last Fixture

Johnstone's Paint Trophy September 2007.

Paul Sturrock named a unfamiliar line-up including youngsters Ben Tozer, Callum Kennedy, Chris Allen and the BEST holdings nobody Mauro Almeida (who wasn't even confirmed a Town player until a couple of hours before kick-off)

Town went behind when former Town dancer/midfielder Ricky Shakes gave Brentford the lead after 11 minutes but Town equalised through Spanish BEST Holdings signing Ibon Perez Arrieta.

Future favourite Simon Cox scored the second before defender Chris Blackburn grabbed an unlikely brace.

Ref Watch:

O. Langford

He's officiated in seven matches this season - including one in the Championship (QPR 3-0 Peterborough)

He's given 26 yellow cards in those 7 games and sent off 1 (Bradford's Jonathan Bateson).

Match Prediction:

1-1!

Next Fixtures:

Town return to Devon and Exeter City in the JPT.
