Swindon Town midfielder Ben Gladwin is well aware of just how big a role Reds fans will play on Saturday with Bristol Rovers the visitors to SN1.

Ben Garner's team are in Derby Day action this Saturday (1pm Kick-Off) and, with a bumper crowd expected, Town fans will no doubt create an electric atmosphere.

That will play a huge role in the game, in the opinion of Gladwin, who also believes that last weekend's 3-1 win away at Port Vale can act as a springboard for greater success this season. 

"It was a great performance last weekend and one that we needed and one where we showed how much we can control a game of football," Gladwin told 

"I thought we were very, very dominant from the off and other than a great strike from them, I didn't think they really threatened us at all and I think we have the ability to do that in most football matches. 

"They aren't all the same but if we're able to bring our A game as much as possible, then I think we can dominate that way for the rest of the season.

"The support on Saturday will be massive and we rely on that support massively, especially in the tougher moments. 

"We're looking forward to it and we obviously had a good result at their place (in October), so we'll be using that sort of confidence and taking it into the weekend.

"Every game is completely different, though, and we need to go from minute one, wrestle for control of the game, do all the horrible bits and then play our football."
