County Ground, Swindon
Saturday 22 September 2007
3pm Kick Off
Swindon Town welcome to AFC Bournemouth to the County Ground this Saturday as Town look to finally score more than 1 goal for the second time this season in a game.
Our home form will be key to our success this year and we have been trying to get the players into the right mindset this week. Last year we were very hard to beat at home and we have been emphasizing to the players some of those things that made us a tough side to face last season.
Swindon Town boss Paul Sturrock
Swindon Town's Hasney Aljofree is about for 4-6 with a knee injury that he suffered against Hartlepool last weekend. Jack Smith will have a late fitness test after suffering from a rib injury. Ady Williams, Andy Nicholas and Barry Corr are still out of action. Christian Roberts could start on the bench as he recovers from a knee injury.
The pressure will be on the front two after Town have only managed to score 2 goals in a game once this season against Luton Town. Bily Paynter and Simon Cox are likely to start up front for The Robins.
Bournemouth who were lucky to escape relegation last season currently sit 19th in League One. Warren Cummings who broke his arm, Ryan Garry and Russell Perrett will all miss this game through injury. Former Swindon striker Jo Kuffour could play whilst Josh Gowling and Paul Telfer will face late fitness tests if they are to feature.
The former Oxford Scum player has scored 5 goals for Bournemouth since arriving from Southend and will look to add to that tally.
Last time the 2 clubs met Swindon Town got a rare win during the 2005/06 season by beating the Cherries 4-3. Goals from Rory Fallon (last game at the club), Jamie Cureton, Lee Peacock and Stefani Miglioranzi sealed the 3 points for Town.
Swindon Town 3 (Blackburn, Paynter, Peacock), Bournemouth 2 (Bradbury 2)
