Town look to contiune their fine run of form by taking on Paul Peschisolido's Burton side. This is the first ever meeting between the two clubs.
A rare moment as opposition manager Paul Peschisolido directed some praise Swindon Town's way. He told BBC Radio Derby that
'Swindon have strength in depth and lads who perhaps people don't know about because they are foreign.'
'The key is has he (Paolo di Canio) got them united and all playing together and based on their last few results you would say yes.'
Paul Peschisolido will be withouth Jacques Maghoma, Cleveland Taylor and Nathan Stanton while Greg Pearson is struggling.
Burton side that beat Crewe 1-0
R. Atkins, A. Webster, R. Austin, T. James, A. Corbett, C. Palmer (D. Blanchett 71'), A. Bolder, J. McGrath, J. Phillips, J. Richards (B. Kee 89'), C. Zola.
The journeyman forward is enjoying a superb start to his Burton career with 7 goals from 8 starts so far this season.
Paolo Di Canio is without Oliver Risser, Lukas Magera and Abdul Said.
However, Aden Flint is back in contention.
Town side that beat Crawley 3-0
M. Lanzano, A. McCormack, J. Devera, P. Caddis, C. Kennedy, J. Smith, M. Ritchie, R. De Vita (M. Storey 65'), A. Abdulla (S. Ferry 74'), A. Connell (A. Cibocchi 57'), M. Kerrouche.
As the chant goes, he's on fire.
The former Algeria under-21 has impressed in recent weeks and will be hoping to continue his run of form.
With Swindon's rollercoaster form over the past 30 years, it's rare for the Town to meet a another club in the league for the first time but the last week has offered two such events! Crawley were brushed aside but can Town do the same at Burton who have had a fine start?
Town haven't faced Burton in any competition ever.
Lloyd Opara and Adam Willis are the only two players to have featured for both Swindon Town and Burton Albion.
Veteran Burton Albion goalkeeper Kevin Poole is the last player from Swindon Town's 4-3 Wembley Play-Off victory over Leicester City in 1993 who still plays professional football. Poole was in goal for City that day and the 48 year old will sit on the bench.
