Vital Quotes:

Oh how the media will spin this as though Crawley Town are a side of plumbers and postman.

However, the truth is that this Non-League club have a bit of financial clout and a pretty established side as a result of it.

I'm sorry Crawley Town fans, this IS a supporter of a League One football club that is fearing the worse.

Crawley Town Team News:

Former Boston United and York City midfielder Simon Rusk is the only player who is unavailable due to a long standing knee problem.

On-loan Reading winger Abdulai Bell-Baggie could be given a full debut.

Crawley have a squad that boasts plenty of experience with players such as Michel Kuipers and Sergio Torres.

Player to watch: Matt Tubbs

The former Salisbury City forward has been in fine form since joining in the Summer. He has 15 goals in the league alone so far this season.

Swindon Town Team News:

Captain Jonathan Douglas picked up a groin injury against Notts County so is likely to miss out. Simon Ferry is likely to replace the Irishman.

Kevin Amankwaah and Vincent Pericard are both in training but could be lacking match fitness.

Also, Manchester City have refused permission for David Ball to play.

Mark Scott is cup-tied.

Player to watch: David Prutton

With Douglas injured, it's important for the former England prospect to take control of the midfield.

Match Facts & Stats

Only three players have turned out for both Swindon Town and Crawley Town.

Former Swindon loanee Kevin James later played for Crawley while goalkeeper Jimmy Glass later turned out for the Red Devils.

Current Town number one goalkeeper Phil Smith enjoyed a two spell at the Broadfield Stadium, playing 73 times and representing England C during his career there.

Match Prediction:

At the end of the proverbial day, Town are the League One side. I can worry and fear the worst but we must win this. Crawley Town 1-2 Swindon Town

Next Fixtures:

Town welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the County Ground on Saturday 4th December.
