A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS:


Steve Robinson, Oldham Athletic Manager: “There is not a lot between seven or eight clubs and one win takes us up to around ninth so we are aiming to win the game.


“It’s our home game and we’re looking to capitalise on a good point last week. Swindon are a good side that come out and play football.


“They take risks and play out from the goalkeeper all the time but it’s something we can get on top of them. We have a high energy pressing game and that’s what we intend to do.”


Luke Williams, Swindon Town Head Coach: “There are so many cagey affairs in League One and so many tough battles that go right to the end.


“We need to be prepared as always to go and face the challenge.


“I’ve got no doubt that Oldham will be setup extremely well and there are no easy challenges.”
