The County Ground



NEXT UP: Bristol Rovers

THIS IS AN EARLY KICK-OFF: 1300. The last meeting between the two resulted in an easy 3-0 win for the Pirates at the Memorial Stadium. Danny Wilson now faces the task of getting some revenge on Paul Trollope's side.

Vital Quotes: Danny Wilson

On the official Swindon Town website, Wilson commented that...

'I'm not one who goes over games and dwells on them because there's no point, but the feeling of disappointment was universal amongst players and fans on that day.'


Kevin Amankwaah is still struggling with the hamstring injury he suffered during the Stockport County game. Scott Cuthbert would operate in his place with Sean Morrison continuing in the middle alongside Gordon Greer.

Alan O'Brien and Kurt Hammonds are definately out.
