Brunton Park

04/09/10

1500

NEXT UP: Carlisle United

Town looked to build on their 3-0 cup win at Southampton in Cumbria on September 4th to take on the hight-flying Carlisle United

Vital Quotes:

Danny Wilson talking to local media:

'Their squad will be full of confidence at the moment being top of the league, and I don't think Ian Harte leaving will dilute that.'

CARLISLE UNITED Team News:

Ľubomír Michalík and Ben Marshall are expected to make their debuts after signing on loan from Leeds United and Stoke City respectively.

Veteran forward Jason Price in back in contention after returning to training but Danny Livesey, Paddy O'Brien and Bradley Potts are out.

The influtential Ian Harte has left to join Reading.

United side that drew 1-1 at Colchester in their last fixture

Collin, Harte (Murphy 75'), Simek, McDaid, Chester, Thirlwell, Berrett (Robson 73'), Taiwo (Kavanagh 83'), Curran, Madine, Zoko

Subs not used: Bridge-Wilkinson, Hurst, Caig, Kane,

Player to watch: François Zoko

The former Côte d'Ivoire youth international has enjoyed his time with Carlisle since joining this summer.

He had plenty of decent experience and could prove to be popular at United.

SWINDON TOWN Team News:

Paul Caddis is on international duty with Scotland Under-21's while Billy Bodin is with the Welsh equivilant so they both missed out.

However, Thomas Dossevi is available after choosing to remain with the squad instead of linking up with the Togo national team for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

New signing Alan Sheehan could feature but might be short of match practice. Callum Kennedy, Michael Timlin and Simon Ferry all started in midweek and may have done enough to remain in the squad.

David Prutton returns from suspension.

After scoring his first two Swindon goals at Southampton, Vincent Pericard is expected to partner Charlie Austin up front.

Town side that beat Southampton in their last fixture

Lucas, Cuthbert, Morrison, Kennedy, Amankwaah, Douglas (Evans 21'), McGovern, Timlin, Ferry, Pericard, Austin (O'Brien, 81').

Subs not used: Dossevi, Smith, Ball.

Player to watch: Vincent Pericard

It's Pericard's first game at Brunton Park since leaving Carlisle for Swindon last season. He finally grabbed his first Town goals in midweek and will be desperate to build on that.

Match Facts & Stats

Town did the double over Carlisle United last season.

Charlie Austin scored on his full debut in November 2009 to give Swindon a 1-0 victory.

Goals from Austin again and Billy Paynter gave Swindon a 2-0 win at the County Ground in the return fixture.

Ref Watch:

He's officiated in The Championship this season and the Carling Cup.

In his five games this season he's handed out eight yellow cards and one red.

Match Prediction:

1-1

Next Fixtures:
