Swindon Town have opted to make four changes for tonight's Sky Bet League Two fixture away at Stevenage.

Ben Purkiss, Matty Taylor, Timi Elsnik and Luke Norris have all been restored to the Starting XI, with Chris Robertson, Ellis Iandolo, James Dunne and Kaiyne Woolery dropping to the bench. 

Town have favoured a 3-5-2 in recent weeks but they've reverted back to a 4-4-2 tonight with Marc Richards, who hit a brace on his home debut at the weekend, leading the line with Norris. 

Elsnik, who was so impressive in the win against Crewe after coming off the bench, takes his place in central midfield alongside Ollie Banks with Kellan Gordon and Keshi Anderson lining up on the wings.


STEVENAGE (4-4-2) - T King; Henry, Wilmot, J King, Vancooten; Franks, McKee, Smith, Kennedy; Godden, Newton.

SUBS - Fryer, Wade-Slater, Wilkinson, Amos, Conlon, Georgiou, Gray.

SWINDON TOWN (4-4-2) - Charles-Cook; Purkiss, Preston, Lancashire (C), Taylor; Gordon, Elsnik, Banks, Anderson; Norris, Richards.

SUBS - Moore, Robertson, Knoyle, Iandolo, Dunne, Mullin, Woolery.
