Swindon Town Boss Dave Flitcroft has looked ahead to tonight's Sky Bet League Two fixtur

The Reds are back in action later (7:45pm Kick-Off) and they will be hoping to make it four wins out of four on the road. 

"It is work on the training ground and teams maybe come on to you a little bit more and try to attack you, so when you play from solid shape you can go and counter them," Flitcroft said.

"That has been pretty important. 

"From a mindset point of view you are Swindon Town rocking up to these places and the mindset has been 'we are Swindon, we are proud and we will go and really perform.'

"We've had a solid structure away from home, discipline and just a real willingness to work harder than the other team.

"We'll have a body count because the boys put in one hell of a shift to get the win on Saturday, so we've got to see who can go again and who can perform. 

"The wide players and the strikers would have covered an extreme amount of distance, they worked so hard out of shape and out of possession so we will look at that with a view to getting ready to go again on Tuesday.

"I'll pick a team on Tuesday for footballing reasons and if we get it right then great, if not then we will learn from it."

Keshi Anderson will also be assessed ahead of tonight's game after taking a knock to his ankle last week.

"He was disappointed he came off on Saturday, he wants to score but we didn't want to burn him out because he put one hell of a shift in," Flitcroft added.

"He's just resting the ankle so he's ready to go again on Tuesday."
