After the impressive 2-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in midweek Swindon must shift their focus to the F.A. Cup with a trip to North Wales and Dean Saunders' Wrexham side.
Town fans will be cautious due to Swindon's awful loss at Histon last season alongside the unconvincing 1-0 victory over Woking in the previous round this season.
Talking to BBC Radio Wiltshire Town boss Danny Wilson talked of Charlie Austin's absence due to being cup tied.
In form striker Gareth Taylor is in contention after a knee problem.
Mansour Assoumani returns after suspension but Senegal international Lamine Sakho sits out of the last of his 3 match ban.
IThe veteran forward has been in fine form since signing on a free transfer after departing Doncaster Rovers last summer.
Taylor, a Weston-super-Mare native, started his career with Bristol Rovers before forging a decent career playing for clubs including Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Sheffield United, Nottingham Forest and Burnely. He also has 15 caps for Wales.
Taylor scored a brace on his Wrexham debut against Eastbourne and scored another double in the impressive 3-0 win against Luton Town. He also scored Wrexham's only goal as they knocked out Lowestoft in the previous round. He has 8 goals to his name thus far.
Charlie Austin is cup tied after playing in Poole Town's three F.A. Cup fixtures. Simon Revell is unavailable while new loan striker Danny Ward is out injured.
Ben Hutchinson is likely to play up front alongside Billy Paytner.
Leeds United defender Alan Sheehan has been given permission to play after joining on loan until January.
Dean Saunders will be cautious of Town's in form midfield while Gordon Greer and Scott Cuthbert will look to continue their crucial partnership in defence.
However, Hutchinson faces his final chance really in this game because it is likely that he will make the first team line-up by default with Charlie Austin, Simon Revell and Danny Ward all out.
He has to prove it to himself that being away from Celtic hasn't been a complete waste of everybody's time and put in a good performance against Wrexham this weekend.
That is unless Wilson opts to field Lee Peacock instead!
Last Meeting: Swindon Town 2-1 Wrexham
This meeting took place in January 2007 in League Two. Marc Williams put Wrexham ahead after only 8 minutes but Town replied immediately through Sofi Zaaboub in what turned out to be the Frenchman's only Swindon goal.
Christian Roberts won it for Swindon after converted a 71st minute penalty.
In all competitions, Swindon have beaten Wrexham 14 times, drawn 7 and lost 14.
On December 1st Swindon travel to Stockport County for what will no doubt be a tough (and cold!) midweek fixture in the North.
