Vital Quotes:

Swindon Town Team News:

David Lucas is back from injury but is likely to only replace Mark Scott on the subs bench as Danny Wilson keeps faith with the players who started for the 1-1 with Peterborough United.

Jonathan Douglas sits out with suspension (game 2 of 3).

Swindon side that drew 1-1 with Peterborough

Smith, Frampton, Cuthbert, Sheehan, Caddis, McGovern, Ferry, Prutton, Ritchie (O'Brien 86'), Pericard (Dossevi 61'), Austin

Subs not used: Scott, Rose, Timlin, Morrison, Ball.

Player to watch: Charlie Austin

This could be the last time we see Charlie Austin play for Swindon at the County Ground against the club he would have joined had Bournemouth not had a transfer embargo placed on them in 2009.

Enjoy it folks.

Bournemouth Team News:

Eddie Howe is likely to drop young forward Danny Ings to the bench in favour of Cherries legend Steve Fletcher.

Bournemouth side that lost 2-0 at Milton Keynes Dons

Jalal, Wiggins, Pearce, Bartley, Smith, Robinson (Cooper 46'), Pugh, Hollands, Feeney, Taylor (Bignall 64'), Ings (Fletcher 30')

Subs not used: Bradbury, Stewart, Arter, Cummings.

Player to watch: Shwan Jalal

Bournemouth lost their in form forward Josh McQuoid to Millwall and haven't scored in the two league games since the Northern Irishman left the club.

As Bournemouth look to replace McQuoid they will be relying on the former England C international to continue the sort of form that has seen the goalkeeper subject to interest from bigger clubs.

Match Facts & Stats

Statistically, Bournemouth have the edge over Swindon in the leage with Town winning 35, drawing 26 and losing 37 against the Cherries.

It's been a small while since Town and Bournemouth. December 2007 and a 2-2 draw at the Fitness First Stadium.

Town took the lead through Barry Corr but the home side scored two through Jo Kuffour and Sam Vokes. However, Town snatched a draw thanks to a second goal through Corr.

Sammy Igoe, Jamie Vincent, Jimmy Glass, Shaun Close, George Ndah, Jo Kuffour and Les Roberts are among the players to have played for both clubs.

Match Prediction:

2-1 to Swindon
