Howe On Town Visit

11 January 2013

EDDIE Howe is well aware of the threat posed by the Robins having already seen Town in action at close quarters this term.

The Bournemouth boss - a former Swindon loanee - was on the touchline at The County Ground in September as Burnley manager when the two sides met in the Capital One Cup.

Having seen the Clarets lose out 3-1 on that occasion, Howe is looking for his side to continue their good run of form on Saturday.

He told afcb.co.uk: “Swindon have a good balance about their side. I have seen them a couple of times earlier this season and they impressed me then. 

"When I was at Burnley, we played against them in the Capital One Cup, so I have seen them close up. 
 
“We know they have goals in them as their recent record suggests. As always, we have to look at our own recent form, which has been very good.
 
“We had a number of players who came in last week and were all excellent, so it’s a nice selection headache for me. Everyone who has come in has played their part." 
 
He added: “We are mindful that we have a lot of fixtures coming up, so there is no respite for us. We are going to need the squad again over the next few weeks, but you have seen the strength in depth that we have and we need that.
 
“"It looks like it will be another full house and that is great to see. At our last two games here, the supporters really got behind the team. They were pivotal for us getting the two wins and also up at Brentford and Wigan. They will be pivotal for us again because we want to make it as difficult as we can against Swindon."
