Bradford and Bingley Stadium
11 February 2006
Swindon Town make the journey up north this weekend to Valley Parade for a clash with 11th place Bradford City.
“We are not getting carried away with two wins.'
“We are still having to catch up. Some of the other sides can maybe afford to lose one or two. We can’t.'
- Swindon Manager Iffy Onuora on the club's fight to avoid Relegation
Striker Dean Windass is available for today's match as his suspension does not start until next week. Richard Edghill broke his leg last week but Lewis Emanuel who has a thigh problem could find his way into the team as a replacement after recovering from his injury.
Andy Cooke will take Steve Claridge's place in the Bantams starting 11 after scoring for Bradford's reserves earlier on in the week. Dean Windass may be getting on a bit, but he can still put up the numbers. He has scored 15 goals in all competition's this season. He also scored a goal against Town earlier in the season during Town's 3-2 loss at the County Ground in September.
Town will be without Charlie Comyn-Platt after he injured an ankle during the victory over Doncaster last weekend and Striker Trevor Benjamin (thigh) may not be fit in time, expect Ashan Holgate to be on the bench should Benjamin not be fit. Sean O'Hanlon will play through his injury.
Quite simply put, the man has been a rock. He looks a different player since the departure of manager Andy King and is now beginning to return to the Jerel Ifil of old. Ifil seems a more disciplined player now after recieving 2 red cards at the beginning of the season. Ifil has also let it be known he want's to talk about a contract extention keeping him at Swindon beyond this season.
Bradford City defeated Swindon Town 3-2 earlier in the season on 24th September, with Dean Windass and Steve Claridge providing the goals for the Bantams, while the departed Rory Fallon scored both goals for Town.
The Match Officials will be, A. Haines, J. Smith, R.J Booth and the 4th official will be R.J Holdsworth
It's hard to predict this one. Only 5 points seperate the two team's. The bookmaker's predict 2-1 for Bradford City however we will go with 1-1.
Swindon Town vs Gillingham Tuesday 14th February 2006 at 7:45om at the County Ground Swindon.
