Swindon Town Head Coach Ben Garner has named a strong Starting XI for today's EFL Sky Bet League Two clash against Rochdale.

The Reds are back home at The County Ground and teams have been announced ahead of this afternoon's 3pm Kick-Off.

Lewis Ward gets the nod in goal after two superb back-to-back performances, while Jojo Wollacott is on the bench after returning from International Duty with Ghana.

Jonny Williams, Alex Gilbert and Kaine Kesler-Hayden - who also all represented their countries - are amongst the subs with Anthony Grant still on his way back to England after playing for Jamaica.
