Heartbreak. Town threw away a brilliant opportunity to beat Charlton Athletic yet failed thanks to a late, late equaliser. Danny Wilson must now motivate his side for the home clash with Yeovil Town on Monday. The Glovers will be full of confidance after comfortably beating Wycombe Wanderers.

Vital Quotes:

Talking after the Charlton game Danny Wilson told the media that the Yeovil game 'should be tasty and Yeovil will enjoy coming to Swindon. They won there last season so we know what they are capable of.'

Swindon Town Team News:

Charlie Austin suffered a minor knock in the 2-2 draw at Charlton. However, Danny Wilson was quick to reassure the fans that he would be available for the Yeovil fixture.

Alan O'Brien may replace Lescinel Jean-Francois in the starting line-up.

This fixture will mark the end of the loan spells of Alan Sheehan, Danny Ward and Ben Hutchinson.

Player to watch: PAYNTER & AUSTIN

Swindon Town have scored 10 times in the last 6 league games and they've been scored by either Paynter or Austin.

The supposed rookie has six while Paynter has four of them.

With the rest of the side failing to contribute in the goal department it's important that these two do!

Yeovil Town Team News:

Glovers boss Terry Skiverton is likely to keep faith in the side that destroyed Wycombe Wanderers on Boxing Day.
