Swindon Town Head Coach Ben Garner is looking forward to seeing his team pit their wits against Oldham Athletic tomorrow.

The Reds head to Boundary Park on Saturday (3pm Kick-Off) for more EFL Sky Bet League Two action, and they will be looking to keep their remarkable unbeaten record on the road intact.

Speaking to the local media at his pre-match press conference earlier today, Garner gave his views on both Oldham and on the game.

"We'll train here and then we'll travel, so we're hoping for a good journey up and hopefully the traffic will be a bit better for us in the half-term week," Garner said.

"We'll train here, we'll have lunch and then we'll travel up to Oldham.

"Oldham have been mixed with their play.

"There have been games where I've looked at them and they've played out from the goalkeeper and tried to pass it through the pitch, and then other games they've gone a little bit more direct.

"They have a mix to how they play, they've been settled with their system and in recent weeks they've had some positive results.

"They beat Stevenage at home recently quite comprehensively, so we're certainly not taking Oldham lightly and we know it is going to be a tough game as every game in this division is. 

"We've prepared really well and we're going there full of confidence. 

"We want to win as many games as we can, the away form has been fantastic and we want to continue that.

"It is on to the next game and we take confidence from the preparation we've done - that's what gives me confidence certainly and I think it is what gives the players confidence in knowing that we've done the preparation, they're in a really good place physically, they're in a really good place in terms of tactical preparation and we can go there with a good mindset and attack the game."
