Chester City Team News:

Chester currently sit 12th in the League 2 table after a 2-2 draw with Torquay United last week. Chester will be without Ricky Ravenhill who returned to Doncaster Rovers after a permanent deal for the midfielder collapsed due to the 60% wage cap rule in League 2. Due to this rule Strikers Jermaine McSporran and Michael Branch and defender Graham Allen are all available for transfers.

Player to watch: Gregg Blundell

The former Doncaster and Tranmere striker will be looking to solve Swindon Town's rock solid defence that has only allowed 2 goals in 5 games.

Swindon Town Team News:

Gareth Whalley, Andy Gurney, Gus Poyet and Dennis Wise will not play. New signing Paul Ince will not be registered in time to play against Chester. Andy Monkhouse and Jamie Vincent are questionable after suffering injuries. Striker Royce Brownlie returns from suspension and could be on the bench for Town.

Player to watch: Jerel Ifil

'The beast' will have to shut down Chester's midfield. Chester like to play 5 in the middle so Ifil will have to adjust accordingly. Ifil has been rock solid for Town this season.

Course they can- its all on the day - teams are out to beat us now, and will try that little more than usual. I'd prefer we were down a peg or two then have a final run in and hit top pole then.,
