1500

NEXT UP: Leyton Orient

Town are an in form team, unbeaten in the league in 2010. However, the small squad failed to emerge from the Stockport game unscathed. Town must now venture to London and take on Orient

Vital Quotes:

Wilson states on the official Town website that '...from past history they have always been tough games against Orient... The worst thing you can do is think games are going to be easy because they won't, and you can easily come unstuck and the players know that.'

LEYTON ORIENT Team News:

Orient have no injuries to worry about.

Side that drew 1-1 with Gillingham

Leyton Orient: Jamie Jones, Ben Chorley, Tamika Mkandawire, Jason Demetriou, Stephen Purches, Adam Chambers (Sean Thornton 68'), Jimmy Smith, Charlie Daniels, Ryan Jarvis, Jonathan Téhoué (McGleish 68'), Aaron Doran (Scowcroft 83')
Subs not used: Glenn Morris, Andrew Cave-Brown, Loick Pires, Luke Ashworth.

Player to watch: AARON DORAN

Young Irish midfielder has recently signed on loan from Premier League outfit Blackburn Rovers.

He'll be keen to impress the fans tomorrow.

SWINDON TOWN Team News:

The the first time for a while Danny Wilson has various issues to deal with.

Skipper Gordon Greer isn't 100% fit but should feature. However, Kevin Amankwaah and Danny Ward are struggling and face late fitness tests.

Player to watch: JONATHAN DOUGLAS

With the injuries within the squad it's important for influential players such as Douglas to lead by example in what will no doubt be a tough match
