Swindon Town will be without Gareth Whalley, Andy Gurney, and Jack Smith. The fate of the club's trialists should be known prior to this match. This is Swindon Town's last friendly prior to the new season starting.

Player to watch: Jerel Ifil

Ifil has been solid at the back. Manager Dennis Wise has chosen not to bring in another defender thanks to Jerel's fine play this pre-season. Eyes will be on Ifil to see if he can maintain the momentum going into the season.
