VITAL PREVIEW: Scunthorpe United

Swindon Town welcome struggling side Scunthorpe United to the County Ground on Saturday as Town return to League One action.

Vital Quotes:

"Obviously our home form has dipped a little bit but we need to make it like it was last year when teams dread coming here and worrying about not getting rolled over.

Matt Ritchie On Town's home form

Swindon Town Team News:

James Collins is likely to start in place of Paul Benson who was lambasted by Paolo Di Canio after last week. Collins scored and changed the game when he came on. Andy Williams is set to miss the match as well as Alan Navarro who is out for a month. No word on Alan McCormack's status.

Player to watch: Matt Ritchie

Ritchie has looked a shell of the player he was last season in recent times, lets hope he can get back to his best. Matt Ritchie is a player that needs to play well for the rest to follow.

Scunthorpe United Team News:

David Mirfin will miss the match through suspension. Former Town left back Callum Kennedy could be set for a re-call after recovering from an injury. Karl Hawley could return after returning to training this week. Captain Paul Reid will face a late fitness test. Former Town players David Prutton, Leon Clarke and Mike Grella return alongside Kennedy.

Player to watch: Leon Clarke

The petulant former Swindon striker is in fine form since arriving at Scunthorpe from Charlton Athletic in the Summer.

Match Prediction:

2-1 Town win with Leon Clarke scoring for the visitors. Former Town players always score against Town.
