Town v Swindon

Huddersfield Town story posted by Peter MacGibbon on 30/04/2005
Our last home game for this season. Swindon have nothing to play for except pride but, unexpectedly, a win for us would keep us in the play-off hunt, albeit maybe only until the other results are in!Town v Swindon

We need to win and we also want at least three of the following results to happen: Bristol City v Doncaster, Bradford City v Bournemouth, Luton v Brentford, Hull City v Sheffield Wednesday. We can stand one result not going our way but not two. Whatever happens elsewhere a win will keep us on track to equal an 85 year old record of eight wins and a draw in the last nine matches.

First, however, we must win. Nathan Clarke will probably be back but brother Tom is doubtful. John McCombe is on standby. Carss and Worthington are still out. With new contracts in their back pockets our other ?Young Guns? will all be rarin? to go! The First Team will be keen to finish well after the reserves handsome 6-2 victory over Scunthorpe, midweek, earning them promotion to the Pontin?s Premier, alongside Manchester United from Division One West!

Steve Jenkins hopes to be back for Swindon, he has had a calf injury. Andy Nicholas will make his second start for the Robins since returning from a loan spell. Swindon have a number of regulars out of action so Andy King will be following Town?s lead by including a number of youngsters in his squad.

Our recent record is first class; over the last eight games we share top billing with Luton, having collected 19 points! At home, of course, we are unbeaten for eleven games, since before Christmas. Swindon?s away record doesn?t bear such close scrutiny; they have lost two and drawn two in their last four away trips.

With two of League One?s leading goal scorers , Pavel Abbott and Sam Parkin, on parade tomorrow there could be a goal fest!

As supporters let?s make it a great last home match for this season and hope that the players on the pitch can keep our spirits up!
