Swindon Town are fully fit and raring to go ahead of their EFL Sky Bet League Two Playoff Semi-Final Second-Leg against Port Vale at Vale Park on Thursday night.

Having come through Sunday's First-Leg without any serious knocks, the Reds will have a fully fit squad to choose from as Head Coach Ben Garner confirmed at his pre-match press conference earlier today.

"We’re good. We’re as we were on Sunday," Garner said.

"We’ve got quite a few bumps and bruises and cuts, but other than that, we’re all good."

Garner also detailed what will go into today and tomorrow for his team as they prepare to get the job done and secure a trip to Wembley in the EFL Sky Bet League Two Playoff Final.

"We’re doing what we would normally do for an away game for this length," Garner added. "So, we’re sticking to the same process that we’ve had all season.

"No changes to that. Players have been very good away from home.

"Our preparation has been very detailed and very consistent and we will stick to that approach for this game.

"I think it’s a little bit different with when you’re playing the same team back-to-back, so you’re not preparing for a new team. Obviously, we’ve seen each other in close quarters on Sunday and it's more fine-tuning going into the next game for both teams, I would imagine. 

"They obviously will have had a good look at our strengths and what we’re about, and vice versa with us with them, so I think it’s a case of who performs best now on Thursday night.

"I don’t think there are any surprises coming in terms of what each team is about, or what each club is about. We have got to go and perform and focus on winning that game."
