Swindon take a break from their shaky League One campaign to travel to Devon for their F.A. Cup 1st Round tie with Plymouth Argyle.
Talking to the BBC Peter Reid declared that he was hoping to progress as he believed that the 'magic' of the F.A. Cup still existed but insisted they still have to 'get past a very difficult Swindon side who will be chomping at the bit to get revenge for when we beat them in the league.'
While Danny Wilson gave Town supporters an insight of the mood in the Swindon camp by stating that his players 'have been absolutely buzzing in training the last day or two so they're very much up for the challenge that's in front of us'.
The Pilgrims will be without on-loan duo goalkeeper David Button and Conor Clifford.
Button of Tottenham Hotspur is out with a thigh injury and could be replaced by long-serving stopper Roman Larrieu.
Meanwhile Chelsea midfielder Conor Clifford is out as his parent club have refused permission for Plymouth to field him.
Defender Reda Johnson has an ankle injury while Carl Fletcher remains sidelined.
Kari Arnason is suspended.
Plymouth side that beat Bristol Rovers 3-1 last Tuesdany:
Button*, Seip, Duguid, Bhasera, Nelson, Bolasie (Mason 61'), Noone, Parrett (Clark 76'), Clifford* (Stephens 89'), Wright-Phillips, Fallon.
Subs not used: MacLean, Patterson, Molyneaux, Larrieu.
* Donates that they will note/or are unlikely to feature against Swindon Town.
The former Manchester City forward has been is decent form thus far including three braces this season (one of them coming at the County Ground).
Vital Swindon player of the month has been granted permission to play by parent club Portsmouth.
Defenders Kevin Amankwaah (knee), Lescinel Jean-Francois (ankle) and on-loan defender Andy Frampton (ankle) are all out.
Jonathan Douglas is also out with a toe injury and Simon Ferry is struggling.
The Pompey midfielder needs to help get the club up and running.
Swindon Town have a dire record at Home Park.
The Robins have travelled to Home Park on 34 occasions in all competitions and have lost 23 of them! Drawing 6 and winning only 5.
The last victory at Home Park was the 1991 4-0 win with Duncan Shearer scoring all four goals.
