Nympsfield Road, Nailsworth

12 July 2006

7:45pm

UP NEXT: Forest Green

Swindon Town travel to Gloucestershire to play Conference Outfit, Forest Green Rovers in their first pre-season game.

Vital Quotes:

"Preparations are going very well so far. The lads are working hard and getting used to the different methods we have introduced. We are all aware that it's a tough season ahead and we are looking forward to the challenge ahead,"

Swindon Town Manager Dennis Wise

Forest Green Rovers Team News:

Forest Green move from their former home, The Lawn to a new stadium just outside Nailsworth. Forest Green Rovers completed three new signing's on Friday agreeing contracts with, Chris Giles who was at cash strapped Crawley Town, former Chippenham Town player McEntegart and Tony Butler who spent last season at League One side Blackpool making over 40 appearances.

Player to watch: Chris Giles

The new signing had attracted the interest of quite a few clubs including League One side Yeovil Town and Conference side Aldershot Town. Fellow new signing Tony Butler will be out to stop Town's strikers, Lee Peacock and Christian Roberts. All three players played at Bristol City.

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon Town manager Dennis Wise has already said he will look to play two sides, both will get 45 minutes to play and impress the manager. Many trialists and youth players are expected to feature. Andy Caton could make his senior return for the club. Andy Gurney will be out whilst recovering from offseason ankle surgery.

Player to watch: The Goalkeepers

Swindon Town have no senior goalkeepers on their books right now. Town have revealed that a un-named keeper from Ajax is on trial at the club. Bristol City goalkeeper Steve Phillips is rumoured to be training with the club now. Shoudl Phillips play and impress this game could land him a contract.

Match Facts & Stats

Swindon Town will be the second club to visit Forest Green Rovers new stadium. Forest Green hosted Championship side Sunderland on Saturday.

Match Prediction:

No real prediction here. I do expect Swindon Town to win, however given the fact I have yet to see the team in action it would not be wise (pardon the pun) to choose a result.

Next Fixtures:

Saturday 15 July 2006, Swindon Town at Cirencester Town 1pm kick off.
