Swindon Town V Barnet - Three Storylines To Focus On

A Look Ahead To Tomorrow's Fixture

Swindon Town will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday when they entertain Barnet at The County Ground (3pm Kick-Off).

We’ve picked out three storylines to keep an eye out for tomorrow afternoon…


Town endured a bad day at the office last weekend after suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Crawley at SN1.

Despite dominating the opening half-hour and creating a glut of chances, with Olly Lancashire, Dion Conroy, Luke Norris and Kaiyne Woolery all going close, the Reds were unable to make that pressure count and they were put to the sword after the break.

However, that game has now been consigned to the record books and Dave Flitcroft and his charges have been putting in the hard-yards on the training ground in order to eradicate the mistakes that plagued their game last week.

There is added motivation tomorrow too with Town desperate to clinch their first home win of the season and there is certainly a steely determination amongst the players to put things right.


Swindon capped off a manic summer transfer window by bringing in no less than four fresh faces on Deadline Day. Talented young duo Timi Elsnik and Kellan Gordon arrived on loan from Derby County, Goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook secured a permanent switch from Coventry City and Crystal Palace striker Keshi Anderson put pen to paper on a deal until January.

All four new recruits are eligible to feature tomorrow and Flitcroft certainly has plenty of options at his disposal should he wish to switch things up against Barnet.

Keshi Anderson arrives with plenty of pedigree having been on the bench for Crystal Palace at the weekend, and he’ll certainly add a different dimension to Town’s forward options should he be involved tomorrow afternoon.


Tomorrow’s game will be the first time that Town have locked horns with Barnet since April 2012, where goals from Ronan Murray and Oliver Risser secured a 2-0 victory for the hosts.

In fact, The Reds are able to boast a very good record against The Bees having won four of their eight meetings.

Town have only lost once to tomorrow’s opponents, a 1-0 defeat in February 2007, and they will be looking to make it three straight victories over the North London side come 5pm on Saturday.
