The County Ground
Town welcome Brentford to the County Ground for Swindon's final home fixture of the normal season
Danny Wilson has talked of caution regarding his squad selection ahead of this fixture. Key players included Town's strike pairing of Paynter and Austin have knocks and has admitted that his next side could be 'a calculated risk'.
Jonathan Douglas, Jon-Paul McGovern, Charlie Austin, Billy Paynter, Danny Ward, Alan Sheehan and Sean Morrison both are all carrying slight injuries.
Alan O'Brien and Kurt Hammonds are expected to sit out the rest of the season despite being back in training.
Callum Kennedy has returned from injury - Vincent Pericard's is doubtful.
With both Billy Paynter and Charlie Austin carrying minor knocks, the young West Ham United loanee may get a chance to impress.
Indeed, the likes of Lescinel, Easton, Timlin and Amankwaah could be given opportunities to start.
Vital Brentford state that Myles Weston could miss the game as he awaits the arrival of he and his partners child.
However, Danny Foster and David Hunt could both return from their brief paternity leave.
Carl Cort, Mark Phillips, Pim Balkestein (on loan from Ipswich) should all feature.
Lionel Ainsworth has returned to Huddersfield Town in disgrace after throwing a wobbly against Yeovil.
Brentford are unbeaten since March.

Brentford's goalkeeper has been in good form for the Bee's since joining on loan from the Arsenal. He could certainly frustrate Town's strikeforce on Saturday.

The two teams last met in October at Griffin Park. On loan forwards Alex Revell (2) and Ben Hutchinson scoring for Swindon in a 3-2 victory. Carl Cort and Charlie MacDonald scored The Bees goals.
