ONE TO WATCH:

Danny Rose has been in fine form for Mansfield so far this term and he leads the club in scoring with 15 goals so far.

However, his game isn't all about goals and his work-rate and disire to do his best for the team makes him a dangerous oppenent to face.

TOP SCORERS: 

SWINDON TOWN - Luke Norris (12)

MANSFIELD TOWN - Danny Rose (15)

TEAM NEWS: 

SWINDON TOWN will be without Kellan Gordon for three games after his appeal for his sending-off against Accrington Stanley was dismissed.

However, Matt Preston is available again after serving a one-match ban whilst Keshi Anderson will be able to play after recovering from a fatigue injury.

Amine Linganzi, Chris Hussey and Donal McDermott are still recovering from their respective injuries.

MANSFIELD TOWN will be without the suspended Hayden White and the injured David Mirfin, although midfielder Jacob Mellis could make his return from a hamstring injury.

A WORD FROM THE TOWN CAMP:

Dave Flitcroft, Swindon Town Boss: "It is about focussing on what we can control and what we can do.

"We're in good form at home since the turn of the year, we're looking forward to a home game and our supporters will be looking forward to it too.

"It is a top of the table clash, it is two teams who are going for promotion and these are the kinds of games that we want at this stage of the season.

"It is a game that we want and it is a game that they will probably want.

"It is two form teams going head-to-head.

"We're looking forward to it."
