Opposition View

Swindon Town coach Tommy Wright praised the Imps ahead of Tuesday's fixture saying: “I think they’ll be one of the teams that is pushing for promotion, so it will be a very, very difficult game.

“But wins bring confidence and confidence brings better performances. The confidence and belief that we collected on Saturday, hopefully we can take that into the next game.

“We know we’re playing a good team, we know they’re very strong, but we know we can be better with the ball and I think we will be better on Tuesday.”

Player to Watch - Anthony Grant

Former Chelsea youngster Anthony Grant brings a wealth of experience to the Swindon ranks.

The 33-year-old spent last season on loan with the club joining the Robins from Shrewsbury, but made his move permanent in January. Grant was named Player of the Season for Swindon at the end of the 2019/20 campaign with 30 appearances and a Sky Bet League Two title to his name.

This season the midfielder has scored twice with his last goal coming against Plymouth in October.
