Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon Town will be without Andy Caton, Charlie Comyn-Platt and Andy Gurney. Jamie Vincent (hamstring) and Lee Peacock (virus) may not play. Phil Smith will play in goal as Preston do not want on-loan keeper Andy Lonergan to become cup-tied. Curtis Weston returns to the squad after a suspension.

Player to watch: Sofiene Zaaboub

Manager Paul Sturrock says Zaaboub has great attacking qualities. Swindon have had problems scoring goals and it will be interesting to see if frenchman Zaaboub can create more chances for the strikers.

Carlisle currently sit 8th in the League One table. Carlisle midfielder Paul Thirlwell is a doubt due to a groin injury. Striker Karl Hawley could start after playing last weekend following a spell out due to a rib injury.
