County Ground, Swindon
Saturday 2 December 2006
3pm Kick Off
Swindon Town welcome Conference side Morecambe to the County Ground in the 2nd round of the FA Cup. A win for either team could result in a money spinning clash with the Premiership 'big boys'.
'Morecambe are a very, very good side away from home with some exciting players.
'Their away record is fantastic.'
- Swindon Town manager Paul Sturrock
Michael Timlin will not feature for Swindon as his club Fulham do not want the youngster cup-tied. Paul Evans has a medial ligament problem and is out for quite some time. Aaron Brown will face a late fitness test after suffering from the flu. Michael Pook returns after serving a one game suspension. Gareth Whalley will start for Town.
Christian Roberts has been on a tear lately scoring in the last 3 games. With his confidence high, will Roberts continue his scoring streak?
Morecambe currently sit in 6th place in the Nationwide Conference and will be looking to do somewhat of a 'giant killing' to advance to the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Morecambe have one injury worry. Wayne Curtis has a knee problem he picked up whilst training with the club earlier in the week. Midfielder Gary Hunter could return to the team, Whilst striker Danny Charlton is fit again to play.
Twiss a former Manchester United youth player has scored 10 goals this season for Morecambe. Twiss has also spent time at Leigh RMI, Chester City and Port Vale.
Swindon Town have never played Morecambe. Lee Collins and Peter Holcroft are the only two players to feature for both teams.
3-2 Swindon Town, Morecambe have a very good away record and will be up for this game. Hopefully with a couple of weeks under Paul Sturrock, the strikers will get enough service to start banging in the goals.
