'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Swindon Town vs. Yeovil Town

The County Ground

15/01/11

NEXT UP: Yeovil Town

Another doom and gloom week for many Town fans... Today the side look to calm the hysteria when taking on Yeovil Town.

Vital Quotes:

Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton has pointed out just how important this game is for Danny Wilson's men.

'Swindon is a massive game, although I think it's an even bigger game for them. For them the most important thing is just not to get beat, but for us we're quite carefree, happy-go-lucky looking above us trying to rein in some teams.'

Swindon Town Team News:

There shall be no Sean Morrison as he's joining our old rivals Reading.

Andy Frampton is only rated at 50/50 so it looks like a back four of Caddis Cuthbert Jean-Francois and Rose.

It's also another 'this could be the last time Charlie Austin puts on a Swindon Town shirt' game.

Player to watch: Charlie Austin

If you are going... Go out with a bang for goodness sake!

Yeovil Town Team News:

Oli Johnson should make his Yeovil debut after joing on loan from Norwich City.

Jean-Paul Kalala is injured.

Player to watch: Paul Wotton

Not a flair player but an effective one.

Match Facts & Stats

Before 2005, Swindon Town and Yeovil Town (and before that Casuals) had only met three times, all of those coming in the F.A. Cup with Swindon winning all three comfortably.

However, since the Somerset club have easily settled into the Football League there have been plenty of encounters between the two clubs.

There have been ten fixtures in the League since 2005. Swindon Town have won four, drawn 2 and lost three.

The last meeting (30/10/10) was a bit dramatic as Town snatched a point from Huish Park thanks to two late goals.

Charlie Austin put Town ahead but Gavin Williams levelled in first half injury time. Dean Bowditch put Yeovil 3-1 with two goals in the 50th and 61st minutes.

However, Sean Morrison pulled one back in the 87th before Jon-Paul McGovern equalised for Swindon a minute later.

30/10/10: YTFC 3-3 STFC
