Saturday 9th September 2006
3.pm Kick Off
First Place Swindon Town travel to The Racecourse for what should be an exciting match against Wrexham.
We will be doing what is best for the team - that's the main point. I won't tell you what we are doing, but that's the way it is!'
Swindon Town Manager Dennis Wise
Wrexham Team News:
Wrexham currently sit 8th place in the League 2 Table with 9 points. Neil Roberts, Ryan Valentine and Chris Llewellyn have all been capped by Wales. Mark Jones may miss out due to blisters on his feet and was forced to miss Wales' match against Brazil at White Hart Lane. Wrexham will be a team to beat this season and proved that by beating Sheffield Wednesday 4-1 in the Carling Cup a couple of weeks ago.
Player to watch: Ryan Valentine
The defender has just been called up to the Welsh International first team and has a commanding prescence at the back. To have someone playing at the senior level of International football in League Two shows how good this player is.
Swindon Town Team News:
Swindon Town are without Gus Poyet, Dennis Wise, Gareth Whalley and Andy Gurney due to Injuries. Town will sorely miss Jerel Ifil who has been intense this season at the heart of the defence. Ifil is suspended due to getting red carded at Chester last week. Paul Ince could make his Swindon debut. Charlie Comyn-Platt will likely start for Jerel Ifil. Jamie Vincent, Andy Monkhouse and Ady Williams all face late fitness tests.
Player to watch: Charlie Comyn-Platt
Comyn-Platt will have the weight of the world on his shoulders as he looks to fill the void left by Jerel Ifil.
Match Facts & Stats
Swindon Town and Wrexham last played each other during the 2004/05 season in League One. Town opened that season away at the racecourse against Wrexham where Andy Caton scored on his debut. Catons goal was not enough as Town went on to lose 2-1. Town would win 4-2 in the return match at the County Ground with Sam Parkin scoring a hat trick during the game.
SW Mathieson will officiate this contest with JD Stokes and BJ Tattan the linesmen. AC Newell will be the Fourth Official.
2-1 Swindon Town. Despite all Swindon's injury worries, the club should have a good away following over 1,000 + which will give the team a boost. Dennis Wise will have a plan to see the Town get past their injury woes.
