TEAM NEWS:

SWINDON TOWN are expected to make changes for tonight's game and there looks set to be a debut for Kyle Knoyle. 

There could also be outings for a number of players that haven't featured as often this season, including the likes of Kaiyne Woolery and Chris Robertson. 

Luke Norris (shoulder), Chris Hussey (groin) and Dion Conroy remain the club's only injury absentees. 

WYCOMBE WANDERERS have been hit by a raft of injuries recently, so much so that manager Gareth Ainsworth has included himself in the matchday squad for tonight's game.

The Chairboys are without eight players this evening with Sido Jombati, Anthony Stewart, Scott Kashket, Michael Harriman, Nathan Tyson, Jack Williams, Josh Umerah and Dan Scarr all sidelined. 

A WORD FROM BOTH CAMPS: 

Dave Flitcroft, Swindon Town Manager: "It is a great game for us to utilise the squad.

"We've done it really well because we've tried to get a behind-closed-doors game for those who are under game time. 

"With tonight's game and the game on Sunday we can have a right go at that and look at a team that can go out and play 90 minutes.

"Wycombe haven't got the biggest squad so it might be a similar team to the one we played against last week.

"We know how they play, we know how they set-up and I'm hoping the conditions might be a little calmer."

Gareth Ainsworth, Wycombe Wanderers Manager: "Other than the start of last season, I can't remember a time during my managerial career when we've had such a long injury list.

"I keep myself fit and I join in training from time to time, so I'll be ready if required, but we're going to Swindon looking for the win and I'm confident the team I pick will be more than capable of doing just that."
