Swindon Town Manager Dennis Wise on Andy Monkhouse

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon Town will be without Andy Gurney, Gareth Whalley, Michael Pook and Andy Monkhouse, who are all out due to injuries. Aaron Brown will start for Monkhouse and look to impress. Swindon will likely field a weakened side with Lukas Jutkiewicz and Phil Smith both starting.

Brown who handed in a transfer request will be looking to impress the Swindon fans who booed him when he came on to play against Crystal Palace in the pre-season.

Brentford's Olafur Ingi Skulason is out with an injury as is Andrew Frampton and Gavin Tomlin. Manager Leroy Rosenior signed former Swindon Town defender Matt Heywood from Bristol City late last week and will likely start against Town.
