THE OPPOSITION

“I think the lads know, it’s a massive game for us” Swindon boss John Sheridan said. “The supporters, I know they won’t be there, but it’s a massive game for them against their local rivals. It would be a good scalp to claim, and it would give us confidence especially leading into another big game at home.

“Oxford are a technically good team, they’ve got a good manager. I know they haven’t won in five or six, but previously to that they were on a really good run. It’s a game we can win, and that’s the mentality we’ve got to go in with.”
