Three to Watch: Swindon Town

7 November 2017

Rovers host Swindon Town in the final Checkatrade Trophy group-stage fixture, with the winner of the tie guaranteed a place in the knock-stage of the competition.

Swindon has enjoyed a steady start to life in SkyBet League Two and currently occupy 5th place in the division, five points off the top spot and have won four games on the bounce heading into Wednesday's game at the Mem.

Take a look below at the potential dangerman in the Swindon ranks ahead of Wednesday's tie.

Paul Mullin - Striker

The striker has played in both of Swindon's previous Checkatrade Trophy ties and like Norris found the net against West Ham United's U21's in a 3-2 defeat back in August.

With six goals to his name, the former Morecambe and Huddersfield man started the season in fine form, with three goals in four games.

More recently, the striker has rekindled his scoring touch, with goals against Port Vale and Dartford in the Emirates FA Cup and is Swindon's leading scorer behind the injured Luke Norris.

Olly Lancashire - Defender

The Swindon skipper has been ever-present at the County Ground this season, helping David Flitcroft's side to concede just eighteen goals so far in the league this season.

In total, the experienced defender has enjoyed six clean-sheets this season, adding two goals in his nineteen appearances.

The twenty-eight-year-old played in the Swindon's defeat to West Ham United's in their opening Checkatrade Trophy tie. 

Harry Smith - Striker

The forward has three goals since the end of September, with the added bonus of all his goals coming in victories for Swindon.

The striker is on loan at Swindon from Championship side Millwall and took a while to find the net, with his first goal for the club coming at the end of September.

Smith has played a part in Swindon's previous two Checkatrade Trophy games and scored in Sunday's victory over Dartford in the Emirates FA Cup.
