7:45pm Kick Off
Swindon Town travel to a wet and soggy Underhill Stadium to play Barnet in the FA Cup 3rd round replay.
The reward for winning for Town is either a local derby with bristol Rovers which the players tempers flared at the County Ground earlier this season or a visit from forgotten Premier League side Fulham.
'Barnet won on Saturday at MK Dons, which was a fantastic result for them. I don't think League Two is miles apart from League One, in that everybody has the potential of beating others in the league.
'We go into the game unbeaten in six games too, let's not forget that.'
Swindon Town Caretaker Boss David Byrne
Barnet pulled off a shock 1-0 victory over League 2 leaders MK Dons over the weekend and will fancy their chances against Swindon. Barnet will welcome midfielder Michael Leary back to action after missing Saturday's clash against MK Dons. Albert Adomah from Harrow Borough who signed earlier in the week could make his league debut for The Bees.
Birchall was the hero for Barnet in the original fixture at the County Ground scoring 5 minutes before full time to ensure the game had to be replayed at Underhill. Birchall has scored 7 times this season for The Bees in all competitions.
Lee Peacock could miss the match with a calf strain. Goalkeeper Phil Smith could make his return after being out after a hernia operation. Ady Williams is still out. Billy Paynter is likely to pair up with Blair Sturrock in attack.
Paynter has looked to be lacking confidence lately after finding himself on the bench whilst Simon Cox and Barry Corr lead from the front. Once Paynter scores we think he will continue to find the back of the net.
Prior to this season, Swindon Town and Barnet have only met twice and that was last season in League 2. Both games resulted in the home team winning.
Swindon Town always fail to win the big games in previous times so we will say a 2-1 win to Barnet sadly.
