Vital Quotes:

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 Team News:

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.
