Vital Quotes:

'We simplified their jobs at corners for the Wycombe match, it seemed to benefit us and we're going to stick to that.

'It'd be nice to score off a corner at the other end though. It would be a big bonus as we`ve not scored off one yet.'

- Swindon Town Manager Paul Sturrock

'In Roberts and Peacock they have two excellent strikers, and we will have to be on top of our game to beat them.'

- Notts County Manager Steve Thompson
