VITAL PREVIEW: Brighton & Hove Albion

Swindon Town kick off the 2012/13 campaign with a Capital One Cup match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Vital Quotes:

"Our momentum is important but there are new players and a new start because we approach the game with a positive attitude.


"This game is important and if we win, we are happy, if we lost I am not happy."

Paolo Di Canio

Swindon Town Team News:

Paul Caddis won't feature for Town after being dropped due to a poor attitude. Joe Devera or Nathan Thompson could start at right back for Caddis.

Player to watch: Matt Ritchie

It will be interesting to see how Ritchie plays without Paul Caddis behind him. When Caddis was injured last season, Matt Ritchie's game suffered so we can only hope that whoever is at right back can link up as well as Ritchie and Caddis did.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News:

Albion will be without a number of players including Andrew Crofts (with Wales), Will Buckley (hamstring), Will Hoskins (foot) and the ever dangerous Craig Mackail-Smith. On loan Ex-England star Wayne Bridge will be available after a late fitness test.

Player to watch: Gordon Greer

Former Swindon captain Greer makes his return to the County Ground and we all know how well he can oragnise his team.

Match Facts & Stats

Former Town players Peter Brezovan and Gordon Greer could feature for Brighton.
