A WORD FROM THE TOWN CAMP

Ben Garner, Swindon Town Head Coach: "I think Crawley have done well away from home and they had another good result at Bradford on Saturday," Garner said.

"I think John Yems has done a fantastic job there because they don't have an Academy and players that can come through and bolster them that way.

"I don't think they will have one of the biggest budgets in the league by any stretch, so he's done really well and they've got really good experience in their team and they've got a lot of quality there.

"They are always intense, they are always organised and they can be a match for anyone in this division as they've shown.

"I've got full respect for John and his team on Tuesday night and we know it is going to be a difficult game, one we're going to have to prepare very well for and be at our best to win."
