Swindon Town welcome Colchester United to the County Ground in League One action.
"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 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.
Thompson could be set for a re-call following being rested on the weekend against The Shrews.
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.
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.
Swindon Town have a lifetime record of 28-15-27 against Colchester in all competitions. The last time the two teams met was in a cup match where Town lost 1-0. In the last league meeting Town lost 2-1 thanks to goals from Steven Gillespie and Dave Mooney. Scott Cuthbert scored for Town.
We predict Swindon Town will continue their fine form with a 3-1 win over our visitors.
Town travel up North on Saturday to take on Bury. Kick off is at 3pm.
