Swindon Town Head Coach Ben Garner is dealing with a fresh set of cards ahead of his team's trip to Barrow on Saturday.

The Reds are set for a lengthy away day to Barrow this weekend in the EFL Sky Bet League Two (3pm Kick-Off), and Garner doesn't have any fresh injury concerns to worry about ahead of the game.

"We're all fine," Garner said at his pre-match press conference earlier.

"It is just Mathieu Baudry but apart from that everyone else is good."

Garner also went into the logistics of planning a long trip to Barrow, while also stressing his belief that tomorrow's game will be on despite bad weather in the area this week.

"We're training early this morning and then we'll get away a little bit earlier," Garner added.

"We'll travel by lunchtime, we'll have a stop on the way up and then the hotel we're staying in is short of Barrow, so we'll do the rest of the journey on Saturday morning.

"It is all planned and all set like we normally do, so our routine won't change from previous away games and we're looking forward to the game.

"The conversations we've had the last two days is that the game will go ahead, so if we travel and it doesn't go ahead I'll be extremely disappointed.

"If that happens we should get the points in my opinion because it is such a long journey, and if we go all the way up there and it is off, I don't think that is right.

"The assurances at the moment are that the game will go ahead, so hopefully that is the case."
