Fraser Eagle Stadium, Accrington
Saturday 7 October 2006
3 Pm Kick Off
Swindon Town travel up North to un-chartered territory as they visit Accrington Stanley. Just one question though. WHO ARE THEY?
'The front two have to work hard and score goals, otherwise we will change them. The team needs the goals and we have been creating chances.'
Dennis Wise on scoring goals
Accrington Stanley have shot to 12th in the League 2 table after a slow start. Accrington will be expecting their biggest crowd of the season after getting average gates of under 2,000. There could be in excess of 1,000 Swindon fans at the game or more as the club promotes this game as seen by this poster.
Stanley have had a great run of results including almost beating Premiership side Watford in the League Cup. This team will be no push over. Accrington stormed the top of the Conference last season and have finally found their form. Michael Welch was included in last week's League 2 Team of the Week.
The talented front man was a runner up in the League Two player of the month awards and will be looking to continue with his great form.
Swindon Town will be without Gareth Whalley, Andy Gurney, Andy Caton and Charlie Comyn-Platt. Dennis Wise and Gus Poyet will not feature. Michael Pook has been on a hot streak and will look to continue this form. Peter Brezovan was named the League 2 player of the month for give me football.
Roberts needs to put away goals and show a bit more passion in his play. Should he fail to do this he could find himself dropped to the bench.
If history is anything to go by, Swindon Town have never beat Accrington Stanley. Swindon Town's record against the original Accrington Stanley team is 0-1-3.
3-1 Swindon Town, After the Departure of Paul Ince and the vocal away support I can finally see Swindon firing on all cylinders.
