Ridehalgh returns for Robins
Defender Liam Ridehalgh is available once again for Swindon as they prepare to face Morecambe in npower League Two.
The on-loan Huddersfield left-back has missed the last two games with an ankle problem but could come into manager Paolo Di Canio's side against the Shrimps at the County Ground.
Di Canio laid into his team for what he called a "bad" display in their 1-1 derby draw at Bristol Rovers last time out and the Italian could make changes to his starting XI.
Winger Matt Ritchie returns from a ban for the Wiltshire outfit and will come back into the starting line-up but defender Joe Devera (ankle) is unlikely to play a part.
Defender Laurence Wilson is a fitness doubt for Morecambe.
Wilson took painful blows to both feet during last weekend's goalless draw with Oxford and will be assessed closer to kick off.
Garry Hunter is hoping to be available for the game after the midfielder missed the U's game due to an unspecified complaint.
Striker Jason Price was an unused substitute in that match having spent time on the sidelines with a hamstring problem and will be pushing for a start against Paolo Di Canio's side who are unbeaten in 14 games, although Shrimps boss Jim Bentley is relishing the challenge.
"It's going to be a very tough game," he told the Lancashire Evening Post. "It will be nice to pit my wits against Paolo Di Canio, who was a fantastic footballer and is now doing well as a manager.
"We expect another tough assignment, but it's a game we will certainly go into with confidence."
As simple as one, two, three for Swindon
First-half goals by Jake Jervis and Raffaele De Vita and a third midway through the second period by substitute Ronan Murray saw Swindon to a comfortable 3-0 win over Morecambe.
Swindon, pleasing on the eye, were good value for their victory against a Morecambe side who began brightly but fell away after Town scored their second on the stroke of half-time.
The rampaging right-wing runs of Paul Caddis proved a constant threat for Swindon, who took the lead with a 28th-minute header by Birmingham loanee Jervis who rifled Liam Ridehalgh's cross into the roof of the net.
Morecambe were left to rue missed chances before half-time, in particular when the influential Andrew Fleming fired into the side netting after Swindon goalkeeper Wes Foderingham had saved from Danny Canton.
Matt Ritchie was equally threatening for Swindon, supplying a series of probing left-footed crosses into the box - one of which picked out De Vita at the far post to double the lead on the half-time whistle.
Swindon twice came close to stretching their advantage in the second half, only to be denied by fine saves from Barry Roche.
But midway through the period, Caddis burst through again and laid on Swindon's third, which Murray drilled home.
