Swindon Town are yet to win this season while Southampton have, surprisingly, sacked Alan Pardew. Tonight sees the two sides take on eachother in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Southampton are, of course, the reigning champions after comfortably beating Carlisle United at Wembley last season.
Dean Wilkins is in charge after Alan Pardew's sudden departure.
New loan signing Guly do Pardo could feature after a cameo at Bristol Rovers.
Danny Seabourne and Adam Lallana are expected to miss out.
32 goals in 47 league games for the Saints... Brace yourself Town defenders!
David Prutton is suspended after being sent-off at Milton Keynes Dons.
Thomas Dossevi could be rested as he travels to Aftica for Cup of Nations qualifier duty.
With David Prutton suspended this will be the ideal opportunity for the Scotsman to impress.
Many Town fans believe that Simon Ferry should not be sitting on the bench. This is his chance.
Town did the league double over Southampton last season with 1-0 wins at both the County Ground and St. Mary's.
