No Flint to spark Robins
Swindon will be without injured centre-back Aden Flint for the visit of Crawley in npower League Two.
Flint had been ruled out for the season with a groin problem recently, but a second opinion from a specialist suggested that the defender may return for the Robins within six weeks.
However, the meeting with fellow promotion chasers Crawley comes far too soon for the imposing centre-half.
Otherwise, Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio has no major injury problems. Winger Etienne Esajas is recovering from a groin injury but the Dutchman was unlikely to feature in Di Canio's squad should he have been fit.
Luke Rooney and Billy Bodin are both available for selection after missing the Robins' last match - the Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Barnet seven days ago - because they were both cup-tied.
Oliver Risser, Alessandro Cibocchi and Ronan Murray are all pushing for first-team recalls, while on-loan defender Daniel Boateng and midfielder Lee Cox are both waiting for their Swindon debuts after arriving from Arsenal and Inverness respectively in January.
Crawley are likely to be unchanged.
The Red Devils beat another of their promotion rivals, Cheltenham, 4-2 last Tuesday night before Saturday's home game against Aldershot was postponed due to the weather.
Tyrone Barnett and on-loan Arsenal youngster Sanchez Watt got the goals while fellow striker Billy Clarke impressed on his debut, having replaced top scorer Matt Tubbs following his move to Bournemouth.
Another deadline-day signing, Karl Hawley, came on as a late substitute for his first Town appearance and looks set to start on the bench again.
Boss Steve Evans once again has a fully-fit squad with his in-form side suffering just one defeat in their last 23 outings in all competitions.
Robins crush Crawley
Swindon moved within a point of the League Two leaders with a resounding 3-0 win over promotion rivals Crawley at the County Ground.
New signing Luke Rooney gave Swindon the lead in the 39th minute with his first goal since arriving from Gillingham last month and Paolo Di Canio's team never looked back.
Swindon goalkeeper Wes Foderingham made outstanding saves from Tyrone Barnett and Kyle McFadzean as Crawley went in search of an equaliser.
But Swindon underlined their superiority in the second half with goals from Billy Bodin and Paul Benson.
Bodin made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute with a fierce shot from the edge of the area after Paul Caddis had set him up.
Benson made certain of an emphatic win, Swindon's 17th in the league this season, when he finished off a sweeping move involving Allan McCormack and Bodin.
Swindon went in search of a fourth as the final whistle approached but Michel Kuipers made an important late stop from Matt Ritchie.
