Saturday 30 December 2006

3pm Kick Off

UP NEXT: Notts County

Swindon Town host Notts County at the County Ground in Town's final League 2 fixture of 2006.

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

Swindon Town Team News:

Swindon Town will be without Curtis Weston and Paul Evans who picked up injuries after colliding into each other at Macclesfield last weekend. Gareth Whalley could be available to take Evans place. Andy Caton and Ashan Holgate are out Indefinitely.

Player to watch: Lukas Jutkiewicz

The 17 year old striker has scored 3 goals in 4 games and could finally be the natural goal scorer the club needs.
