SWINDON Town’s Under 18s take on Cirencester Town at The County Ground this evening in the FA Youth Cup second round proper. Kick-off is 7pm.
Paul Bodin: “It won’t be an easy game against Cirencester. There are three or four ex-Swindon Academy players in their set-up and they will come here believing they have an opportunity to host Liverpool with a win, as we have.”
Swindon will welcome back midfielder Jake Simpson, who missed the first round victory over Sholing after a spell away with Jamaica Under-19s. Salvyn Kisutu will miss the game as he recovers from a groin injury.
THE STORY SO FAR
Town were 6-1 winners over Sholing at The County Ground for the first round encounter, which took place at The County Ground on Wednesday 31st October. Cirencester beat Mangotsfield United 5-2 in the first round of the competition. The Centurions came from two goals down to put five past the visitors in the final hour of the encounter. The winners of tonight’s game will host Liverpool in round three.
LAST TIME OUT
The last game for the Swindon Town Under-18s was a 4-1 home defeat to Oxford United on Saturday 3rd November. There was no game for the side on Saturday.
