Gay Meadow, Shrewsbury
Saturday 21 October 2006
3PM Kick Off
It's STFC V STFC tomorrow at Gay Meadow as Swindon Town look to go on another winning run.
The strikers haven't been on a scoring streak yet and we will get that very shortly. When we do we will probably beat a few teams by a couple of goals.
- Swindon Town Manager Dennis Wise
Swindon are one of the fancied sides and everyone can see the reason why, the staff bill along must be a bit, at one stage they had Dennis Wise, Gus Poyet and Paul Ince so that's three very good Premiership players just on the staff.
- Shrewsbury Town Manager Gary Peters
Shrewsbury Town currently sit just outside the playoff places in 8th spot with 20 points. Shrewsbury Town's Ben Herd is expected to make his return to the starting XI after feeling the effects of a shin injury. Neil Ashton is suspended meaning he will not feature. Andy Cooke has been on the treatment table all week and will face a late fitness test. Goalkeeper Ryan Esson remains sidelined with a facial injury.
Has played 8 games (started 3) and scored 3 goals not a bad shout for the young striker. Will be looking to impress the manager and make sure that Andy Cooke does not get back in the side even when healthy.
Swindon Town will be without Charlie Comyn-Platt, Andy Gurney, Dennis Wise, Gus Poyet and Peter Brezovan. Royce Brownlie and Lee Peacock will face a late fitness test after picking up injuries at Wycombe. Gareth Whalley could find himself on the bench after returning from injury against Wycombe earlier in the week. Christian Roberts could be set to return from a knee injury.
The former Crawley Town player has big shoes to fill whilst first choice keeper Peter Brezovan faces a lenghty spell on the sidelines. Smith played in Swindon's 2-2 draw with Brentford and earlier in the Week in the clubs 1-0 loss to Wycombe. Smith will be looking to keep the number 1 shirt and stop any potential loan signing getting the nod ahead of him.
The last time the 2 clubs met was 10 years ago at Gay Meadow when Swindon walked away with all three points in a 2-1 win. Kevin Horlock and Shaun Taylor scored the goals for Swindon.
SJ Bratt will be the referee for this game. His staff will also include S Caslte and C Dunn. J Colin takes the role as 4th official.
2-1 Swindon Town. Swindon Town will be looking for goals from midfield and manager Dennis Wise is keen to show his strikers can score goals.
