VITAL PREVIEW: Colchester United

Swindon Town welcome Colchester United to the County Ground in League One action.

Vital Quotes:

"When I started it was obvious that, even if I played in this league with 12-year-old kids, I want to stay at the top.

"But we have to be realistic - to build a team, six players, another five two or three weeks ago - is not easy.

"It`s not easy to change and then rotate the players after a fantastic game in the cup. It`s not easy."

Town boss Paolo Di Canio

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon Town are flying high and currently sit fourth in League One. Town have lost only one game this season at home to Leyton Orient. Simon Ferry could face a late fitness test after injuring his hamstring against Shrewsbury.

Player to watch: Nathan Thompson

Thompson could be set for a re-call following being rested on the weekend against The Shrews.

Colchester United Team News:

Colchester United currently sit 20th in League One following the sacking of John Ward. Colchester had an impressive 3-1 over Hartlepool in Joe Dunne's debut as full time U's boss.

Player to watch: Michael Rose

Rose was part of the Swindon team that was relegated at 2 seasons ago. He was a pretty rubbish player who has seen limited action for Colchester but was recently re-called to the starting XI.
