County Ground

UP NEXT: Swindon's Cup Final

Swindon Town have a massive glamour tie today in the FA cup against the massive super power Wigan Athletic at the County Ground.

Us Country Bumpkins are turning out in droves for our cup final with the tie being played infront of a full house at the County Ground.

Vital Quotes:

'Let`s be honest here - this game is a minor distraction for Wigan Athletic fans whereas this is Swindon`s cup final, as evidenced by their ticket sales. Swindon Town appear to be pulling in thousands of fans who probably haven`t been to see their team all season and are only showing their face because they have a glamour game featuring Wigan Athletic, a team of seven years in the Premier League are coming to town'

Northern Soul Website

Editors Note: LMFAO Glamour Tie, Wigan Athletic, Get A Life!!!!

"Wigan are going to be a very good side, but they will have strengths and weaknesses like any other team, and we`ve pinpointed one or two areas that we can try and exploit.'

Swindon Striker Alan Connell

Swindon Town Team News:

Paolo Di Canio has no new injury concerns heading into the match. Medhi Kerrouche will not feature after being told he can leave the club. Billy Bodin who was at Torquay will not feature as he is cup tied.

Player to watch: Aden Flint

Will be interesting to see how Flint does against higher opposition. Has been a revelation in League Two but was caught out by Rickie Lambert in the Carling Cup. Will be interesting to see if he has done his homework on Wigan.
