County Ground, Swindon
Sunday 9 September 2007
4pm Kick Off
Swindon Town welcome Yeovil Town to the County Ground this Sunday infront of the Sky Cameras.
Swindon will be looking to continue their good start to the season however it will not be easy against Yeovil a team who made the League One playoffs last season.
Yeovil are a solid side and have done very, very well over recent seasons. They bring different systems to the party and have quality players too. Marcus Stewart knows the game inside out and Owusu is always a danger. They have a settled but experienced team.'
Swindon Town Manager Paul Sturrock
'I think that their manager will be very pleased with the start that they have made, but you hope that their honeymoon period comes to an end sooner rather than later.
'But they are enjoying life at the minute; they are full of confidence and have made a few more signings.
'They have a fit squad full of fairly talented players, so it will be tough for us.'
Yeovil Town manager Russell Slade
It has been 9 games since Town suffered a home defeat. Swindon Town may hand a starting spot to Jon-Paul McGovern who was immense against Brentford on Tuesday night. Chris Blackburn could earn a spot on the bench after scoring twice against Brentford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Paul Sturrock is unlikely to change his back 4.
The on loan signing from Reading scored on his Swindon debut against Brentford and has demanded to start the game up front. The cocky yet confident striker scored 3 goals in 6 games for Northampton last season.
Yeovil currently sit 7th in League One after their 1-1 draw with Tranmere last week. Terry Skiverton will face a late fitness test after returning from a groin injury. Tom Cochrane who just recently signed a new deal at Huish Park will be out for several weeks with an ankle injury. Midfielder Stephen Maher left recently to join Dorchester on loan. Former Town keeper Steve Mildenhall will start for the Glovers.
The prolific striker who has over £7M in transfer fees has had spells at Sunderland, Yeovil Town (loan), Huddersfield, Bristol City, Preston (loan), and Ipswich Town before joining Yeovil permanently last season after a successful loan spell at the club. Stewart the former Bristol City flop has scored 1 goal in 4 games this season.
Swindon have only ever played Yeovil Town twice in the League and won the home match 4-2 but drew the away game 0-0 during the poor 2005/06 League One campaign where we would get relegated to League Two.
A Marriner is the mnatch official for this game with J Linington and A Watts his assistants. R East is the fourth official.
It has been a while since Town suffered a loss at home. If Cox starts we could win 2-1 however a draw is more than likely the end result. 1-1 it is then!
Coca Cola League One - Saturday 15 September, Hartlepool United V Swindon Town, 3pm kick off
