VITAL PREVIEW: Wolves

Swindon Town travel to Molineux to take on former Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Over the last two seasons things have gone from bad to worse for the midlands club who like Swindon Town suffered successive relegations from the Premier League to League One.

Kenny Jackett appears to have halted the slide and currently see's his side sit second in the table.

Vital Quotes:

"With the money comes added pressure and playing at home, if they`re not winning early on the pressure comes because people do expect them to walk it.

"If you take them pound for pound they`ve probably got the best squad. With the manager they`ve got they`ll get very close

Swindon Town Manager Mark Cooper
