Swindon Town will be looking to strike first against Port Vale in their EFL Sky Bet League Two Playoff Semi-Final First Leg at The County Ground.

After a superb 2021-22 season, the Reds are now three games away from earning promotion to League One, but they face a tough test against an experienced Valiants team.

It should be a tightly-contested affair over two legs and both games will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. 

Kick-Off is at 12pm.

Let's get you set for the game...

ONE TO WATCH

James Wilson was considered one of the next best things while with Manchester United, although his career never quite reached those dizzying heights.

However, Wilson is still a very, very good forward and he's dangerous inside the box, while he's also capable of producing something special too.

Good in the air, Port Vale will look to pump balls into the box and Wilson could prove to be the X-Factor over the two legs.

A WORD FROM THE TOWN CAMP

Ben Garner, Swindon Town Head Coach: "We want to try and win both games. We'll focus on tomorrow, we want to attack, we want to win the game and that will be exactly the case on Thursday, regardless of the result.

"We'll just be focussed on winning both games.

"We're going to attack and score as many goals as we can and try to win the games.

"There's going to be times where game management will come in without any shadow of a doubt and, if you're ahead with 10, 15 minutes to go in the second-leg, then it becomes a different nature to the game.

"We're very much focussed on tomorrow, starting well, putting in a good performance and we're confident if we do that we'll come out with a positive result."
