The County Ground
Swindon Town contine the quest for promotion by taking on League One's top side - Norwich City.
Talking to the official Swindon Town website Danny Wilson stated that he wants to see the same sort of performance that beat Southampton at St. Mary's in midweek. However the Town manager expressed caution.
'They have quality players there and if we don't deal with them then we'll be in trouble, as we would against any team...'
West Ham United Frank Nouble is poised to make his debut after signing on loan for the rest of the season.
Simon Ferry is suspended after being sent-off against Southampton. Either Craig Easton, Michael Timlin and loanee Matt Ritchie could deputise.
Billy Paynter, Scott Cuthbert, Sean Morrison, Alan O'Brien and Kurt Hammonds are all out but Kevin Amankwaah, David Lucas and Vincent Pericard could return to action after injury.
Side that beat Southampton:
XI: Phil Smith, Scott Cuthbert (Lescinel Jean-Francois '37), Alan Sheehan, Stephen Darby, Gordon Greer, Jonathan Douglas, J-P McGovern, Simon Ferry (S-O '86), Mark Marshall (Matt Ritchie '82), Danny Ward (Timlin ,86 ), Charlie Austin
SNU: Craig Easton, Nathan Thompson, Jakub Jesionkowski, Billy Bodin.
With Paynter out injured it is important for Austin to maintain his fine season. He will most probably have Frank Nouble up front with him so it's crucial that the two link up against a strong Norwich City side.
Adam Drury should be fit to return to the side while Cody McDonald and Zak Whitbread are both returning to fitness but could still be rested by Paul Lambert.
Side that beat Huddersfield Town:
XI: Fraser Forster, Michael Nelson, Russell Martin, Michael Rose, Gary Doherty, Darel Russell, Wes Hoolahan, Simon Lappin, Korey Smith, Chris Martin (Stephen Elliott 62'), Grant Holt
SNU: Anthony McNamee, Adam Drury, Paul McVeigh, Declan Rudd, Oli Johnson, Stephen Hughes.
A great player and a greater threat. When he's on form he is easily one of the best players in the division.
In the league the two sides have met 77 times: Town have won 23, drawn 23 and lost 31 times.
This season, Town lost by a single goal by Chris Martin at Carrow Road.
Norwich also knocked Town out of the JP Trophy on penalties.
Before that you'd have to go back as far as March 2000 for our last fixture with the Canaries. A 2-0 win for Town at Carrow Road - both goals scored by Chris Hay.
Played for Both Clubs
Anthony McNamee is currently sitting on the Norwich bench while Jamie Cureton, Ian Culverhouse, Owain Tudur Jones, Peter Thorne and Keith Scott are among those who have played for both clubs.
S.W. Mathieson (Cheshire)
A football league veteran official. His first Swindon Town fixture was way back in 1997 - a 0-0 draw with Sunderland at Roker Park.
During that 97/98 season he officiated the FA Cup loss against Non-League Stevenage and a league loss to Oxford. Boo.
43 yellow cards
2 red cards (Jamie Chandler of Darlington and Dean Moxey of Derby County).
Swindon Town travel to Danny Wilson's former side Hartlepool a week on Saturday.
