The County Ground
Swindon Town welcomed Brentford to the County Ground and will be hoping that they can get their first win of the 2010/11 campaign.
Talking to BBC Wiltshire, Swindon Town assistant manager Peter Shirtliff has highlighted Brentford's threat by stating that 'they have invested, they're having a go. They're going to be a tough side to beat.'
Danny Wilson could opt to go back to two up front after Swindon's poor showing under a five man midfield at Hartlepool last week. Thomas Dossevi scored as a sub in County Durham and in the 4-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle Reserves during midweek so the Togo international would be favourite to partner Charlie Austin.
Danny Wilson has warned of expecting too much of Austin... but let us face it, he is the threat.
Carl Cort could return from an achilles injury while Sam Wood is doubtful.
Brentford side that lost against Walsall last week
Alex McCarthy, Craig Woodman, Marcus Bean, Leon Legge, Pim Balkestein, Toumani Diagouraga, Sam Wood (Myles Weston '61), Kevin O'Connor (Capt), Gary Alexander, Robbie Simpson, Charlie MacDonald (Nicky Forster '73)
Subs: Richard Lee, David Hunt, Karleigh Osborne, Michael Spillane, David McCracken.
First played against Swindon (for Brentford) way back in 1995! He's started 12 times over the years against Town and scored 8 goals. I dare say that whether he gets 90 or 9 minutes, he'll cause Town issues... It's what he does.
Town first met Brentford 99 years ago and have clocked up over 100 matches since.
Last season Swindon did the double on Brentford: The first fixture was at Griffin Park which Town won 3-2 thanks to an Alex Revell brace and a Ben Hutchinson effort.
Swindon won at the County Ground 3-2 in April thanks to goals from Billy Paynter (2) and Danny Ward.
Swindon Town 2-1 Brentford
