Team News

Rovers unfortunately didn't come through Tuesday's cup tie unscathed in regards to injuries. Zoumana Bakayogo limped off with a calf injury and is awaiting scan results as well as Ritchie Sutton who is also waiting for scan results on a suspected broken leg for or game against Cheltenham.

Liam Ridehalgh and Adam Buxton have started light training but this game comes too soon for them whilst Evan Gumbs (leg) is still an absentee.

For Swindon, Marc Richards is on his way back from injury and could play a part in tomorrow's game.

Their long term absentees are Kaiyne Woolery and Chris Robertson whilst James Dunne returns from suspension for The Robins.

Head to Head

Our last victory against Swindon came back in February 2009 when Antony Kay scored the winning goal at Prenton Park. Our last win at The County Ground  came three years prior in 2006. Sam Aiston and Carl Tremarco with the goals that day.
