NEXT UP: Bristol Rovers

Swindon got back to winning ways after beating Torquay United in the JPT but Danny Wilson's men will be desperate to end their losing streak in League One. On Monday night Town welcome Bristol Rovers to the CG.

Vital Quotes:

Bristol Rovers manager Paul Trollope has Swindon Town in his blood. He told BBC Radio Bristol...

'We're going there to put on a performance, we're not thinking about the end result or the league table... We've had some fantastic encounters, we've got a lot of respect for them. They had a good season last year and just missed out at the final hurdle, but we go into the game with the belief we can go there and win.'

SWINDON TOWN Team News:

Danny Wilson will be without Charlie Austin, Alan Sheehan and Lescinel Jean-Francois who are all still injured. Scott Cuthbert is also struggling after getting injured during the first half against Torquay United.

Paul Caddis and Thomas Dossevi are still away on international duty.

Matt Ritchie is expected to make his full league debut while David Prutton returns from suspension.

Player to watch: MATT RITCHIE

This is a big moment for the on-loan midfielder who is keen to impress both his parent club and Danny Wilson.

BRISTOL ROVERS Team News:

Town will expect Paul Trollope to select the same attacking line-up as previous weeks with Will Hoskins being partnered by Bristol City loanee John Akinde and former Swindon loanee Jo Kuffour.

Player to watch: WILL HOSKINS

If it's level in injury time then say a litter prayer to the Football Gods because the former Rotherham United and Watford forward has bagged last gasp winners in their last two fixtures.

Match Facts & Stats

Swindon were given a thorough seeing to twice last season with Rovers winning 3-0 at the Memorial and 4-0 at the County Ground.
