The View From The Opposition: Swindon Town

SWINDON are currently in 22nd place going into a crucial game at the weekend for both sides.

The Robins are seven points from safety with just seven games to go and need a win to keep their hopes alive of being in Sky Bet League One next season.

Millwall have drawn their last two, and as such dropped out of the play-off places. The Lions can get back into those positions if they win their games in hand.

Lucas Ball spoke to Swindon fan Kyle Roberts ahead of Saturday's early kick-off at The County Ground.

Why do you support Swindon?: Swindon Town was the first football club I went to see. My dad used to live in Swindon and supported them while he was there so it was the first team he took me to.

Millwall's recent defensive record has been good, do you see Swindon getting through the Lions’ backline?: Nicky Ajose is a top-class striker. He's a proven finisher for us and saved us from relegation last season.

Chelsea loanee Charlie Colkett provides assists from attacking midfield. We score more regularly at home so, yes, I can see us scoring on Saturday.

Do you think Swindon have enough about them to stay up?: Unfortunately, I don't believe we have enough to stay up.

Of course I'd like to think we can but we lost the big games against the teams around us – Port Vale and Chesterfield. We have hard games coming up in Millwall and Fleetwood, too, so I can't see Swindon being in League One next season.

Who are Swindon's main threats?: As mentioned earlier, Charlie Colkett and Nicky Ajose are probably the two main threats going forward. Ajose scored 25 goals in all competitions last year and has four in nine this season.

However, I don't think we will be able to outscore Millwall at the weekend.

Who could cause Swindon issues from Neil Harris' side?: Obviously the strike partnership of Lee Gregory and Steve Morison is a danger.

We have struggled at the back all year, even with a great goalkeeper (Lawrence Vigouroux) at this level. You also have Fred Onyedinma who could be dangerous coming off the bench.

Finally, a score prediction?: This a huge games for both teams.

A win for us could spark some sort of survival hope and a win for you will push you into the play-off places. I'd like to back my team but can't see Millwall losing.

Swindon 1-2 Millwall

    My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
