Town visit in-form Wycombe Wanderers who are keeping their hopes of survival alive after three straight wins

Vital Quotes:

Town captain Gordon Greer mentioned on his online blog that the squad are 'still in good spiritis going into those last few games, and we're really looking forward to Saturday's game against Wycombe to try and get that win we all want.'

Wycombe Wanderers Team News:

Wanderers manager (and briefly Town player) Gary Waddock is expected to keep faith in the side that beat MK Dons at Stadium:MK in midweek.

WWXI: Heaton, Woodman, Westwood, Hunt, Bloomfield, Betsy, Ainsworth, Mousinho, Montrose (Beavon 81'), Revell, Pittman (Phillips 65')

Player to watch: ALEX REVELL

Played 10 league games for Swindon Town this season during his loan spell from Southend United.

He won't go down as Town's best player this season but did impress when he scored two at Brentford - that indicated his towards his decent potential at this level.

He's recently found a little bit of form and will be hoping to try and claw their way out of the relegation zone.

Swindon Town Team News:

Town still have Frank Nouble at the club after extending his loan deal until the seasons end.

Sean Morrison was injured during the first half of the 0-0 draw with Bournemouth Reserves so is likely to miss out. However, the injury is not considered serious. Alan O'Brien is out.

Player to watch: PAYNTER & AUSTIN

Their goals have taken the club into the top six and it's crucial that continues.

Match Prediction:

Wanderers MUST win to keep their survival bid going, they are at home and will be fighting for their lives. Three wins out Town MUST win to keep their automatic aspirations alive, Town have suffered a slight dip in form and are failing to finish chances. However, Wycombe are down there for a reason - Town win 2-1.

Next Fixtures:

Town welcome Brentford for the last league fixture of the 'normal' season.
