PREVIEW: TOWN V FLEETWOOD TOWN

16 December 2016

Town will be looking to make it three wins from three home league games when they host Fleetwood Town at The County Ground on Saturday (3pm Kick-Off)…


Luke Williams’ side have won their two previous Sky Bet League One encounters at SN1, against Charlton Athletic and Bradford City respectively, and will be hoping to bounce back after last weekend’s 4-0 defeat away at Sheffield United.


Fleetwood are currently on a seven game unbeaten run and they beat Shrewsbury Town 3-2 in a FA Cup Second Round Replay on Tuesday night, just days after recording a 2-1 success against Walsall in the league.


These two sides last locked horns in April 2016 when a Nicky Ajose goal secured a share of the spoils for the Robins at SN1.

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:


Luke Williams, Swindon Town Head Coach: “Uwe Rosler is excellent at what he does and he will no doubt have Fleetwood Town organised and everybody will know what is expected of them.


“There’s been a lot of investment at Fleetwood and they’ve got a new training facility – they are a very ambitious club.”


Uwe Rosler, Fleetwood Town Head Coach: “It’s going really well but the longer the run goes the harder it gets to keep it going.


“I think Swindon are an energetic and young team who play expansive football.


“We are a team who score a lot of goals – the only team who have scored in every game home and away.
