Read the Gaffer's pre-match thoughts

28 August 2021

Swindon Town Head Coach Ben Garner is looking forward to the challenge that Mansfield Town will pose his team today.

The Reds are back in EFL Sky Bet League Two action at The County Ground this afternoon (3pm Kick-Off), and Garner knows his team will be up for the challenge as they look to finish August on a high at SN1.

"Mansfield are a good side with a really experienced Manager in Nigel Clough who has been successful in this league previously," Garner said.

"They've got good attacking options, they've got a good mix to their play and they have the aerial presence and the ability of Hawkins as the front-man, but they've also got some really good footballers and technicians in their team as well.

"They will be a big threat.

"They've got some good midfield players that can impact the game and they pose a threat from full-back as well, so we're well aware of their strengths and how good they are, but it is a challenge we're looking forward to.

"They can really mix their game up and we know it is going to be a tough test, but one we are very much looking forward to.

"Every game in this league is a tough test and Mansfield are a very, very good team and they've been well-backed over the last few years.

"We know it is going to be a really tough test but we want to get that first win at home, the supporters have been brilliant home and away, and we would love to give them a reason to celebrate on Saturday with a good performance and hopefully three points."
