LAST TIME WE MET

A WORD FROM THE TOWN CAMP...
Ben Garner, Swindon Town Head Coach: "They paid a couple of transfer fees for a couple of good players that are experienced at the level, so they’ve obviously looked to strengthen.
"We assess what they have done in this period. They’ve obviously had a Covid break as well, a long period without playing and that changes where clubs are, like it did for us.
"So, we learn from the previous game. They are a very committed and organised team - Darrell’s (Clarke’s) teams are always intense with and without the ball. We know that, we have to be prepared for that, but we have got a way of playing that we think can be successful.
"We have to commit to that, we have to believe in it, but we certainly have to have that intensity and focus that is needed to get three points against anyone in this league."
