TEAM NEWS: Banks In For Town Debut

New Boy Thrown Straight In For Reds

13 January 2018

Swindon Town have elected to make just one change for today's Sky Bet League Two clash against Forest Green Rovers at The Energy Check County Ground.

New signing Ollie Banks is chucked straight in for his debut just a day after arriving on loan from Oldham Athletic until the end of the season.

Amine Linganzi is the man to miss out while Donal McDermott is also not in the squad having picked up a groin strain.

Other than that Town Boss Dave Flitcroft has opted to keep faith with the same group of players that earned back-to-back victories against Notts County and Barnet respectively. 

Luke Norris and Kaiyne Woolery again lead the line in a 3-5-2 formation with Keshi Anderson just behind them, while Banks sits in alongside James Dunne in a holding role. 

In-form Ellis Iandolo takes his place at left wing-back once again with Kyle Knoyle lining up on the opposite side. 

TEAMS: 

SWINDON TOWN (3-5-2) - Charles-Cook; Preston, Lancashire (C), Robertson; Knoyle, Dunne, Banks, Anderson, Iandolo; Woolery, Norris.

SUBS - Henry, Purkiss, Taylor, Brophy, Goddard, Gordon, Mullin.
