It's 21 days since Town's humiliating exit from the F.A. Cup to Non-League Crawley Town.

Finally, Town get the opportunity to make amends against Gary Johnson's Peterborough United.

Vital Quotes:

Swindon Town Team News:

Jonathan Douglas FINALLY begins his 3 match suspension after his sending-off against Crawley Town.

Paul Caddis remains sidelined due to illness.

Goalkeepers David Lucas and Phil Smith have been passed fit.

Player to watch: Charlie Austin

No contest!

Peterborough United Team News:

The only probable absentee for United should be forward Aaron McLean who is in talks with Hull City.

Player to watch: Craig Mackail-Smith

In fairness Peterborough have several decent individual players but Mackail-Smith is likely to cause the Town defence the most mischief!
