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

Swindon Town vs. Huddersfield Town

The County Ground

24/11/09

1945

NEXT UP: Huddersfield Town

Free scoring Huddersfield Town look to terrorise Swindon at the County Ground but the likes of Scott Cuthbert and Gordon Greer will be keen to keep Lee Clarks men at bay and end the Terriors fine run of form.

Quotes

Lee Clark had his players train on Sunday aftr struggling to overcome Hartlepool.

'...we will head to Swindon looking to get another positive result.'

Swindon Town Team News:

Charlie Austin should keep his place alongside Billy Paynter in the starting line-up after scoring on his full debut at Carlisle United.

Danny Wilson is likely to opt with the same eleven that beat Carslisle.

Player to watch: Scott Cuthbert

Swindon will be relying on Cuthbert along with Gordon Greer, Lescinel Jean-Francois and Kevin Amankwaah to keep out the free scoring Huddersfield attack.

Huddersfield Town Team News:

Huddersfield manager Lee Clark has had the luxury of selecting the same starting eleven for a remarkable seventh straight fixture.

Alex Smithies
Nathan Clark
Robbie Williams

Theo Robinson

Only Charlton Athletic have beaten Hudderfield during this spell while the Terriers have scored six against Dagenham & Redbridge and Wycombe Wanderers and four past Exeter City and Leyton Orient.

Player to watch: Jordan Rhodes

Along with goalkeeper Alex Smithies, Rhodes is one of Hudderfield's most sought after players.

Theo Robinson started well but has since found it difficult to oust Rhodes and former Gateshead striker Lee Novak from this winning line-up.

Legendary Huddersfield Town manager Herbert Chapman had a brief spell as a Swindon player in 1899.

Ref Watch:

Andrew Penn: In the 15 games he has officiated this season Penn has dished out 26 yellow cards without needing to send anyone off.

His first Swindon fixture was all the way back on New Years Day 2003 when Town were unlucky to leave Ninian Park with only one point. Sam Parkin gave Town the lead after 70 minutes but a late Robert Earnshaw equaliser gave Cardiff a point.

Match Prediction:

1-2

Next Fixture: Wrexham

Town face a tough fixture at Blue Square Premier outfit Wrexham on Saturday.
