Star duo fit to face Saints
Swindon captain Jonathan Douglas and star striker Charlie Austin should both be fit to face Southampton despite suffering with hamstring trouble earlier this week.
The important duo missed training sessions after last weekend`s disappointing goalless draw at Carlisle but have returned and should be okay to face Saints.
Goalkeeper David Lucas and full-back Kevin Amankwaah emerged from the Carlisle clash with hand injuries but will both be available, with the latter expected to wear protective strapping.
Centre-back Lescinel Jean-Francois completed 90 minutes for the reserves in midweek but he is not expected to break up the partnership between Scott Cuthbert and Sean Morrison which has helped secure back-to-back clean sheets.
Bottom of the table Town are still searching for their first league win of the season, with their only triumph to date coming with a 3-0 victory over Southampton to dump the holders out of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy.
Managerless Southampton will be without Lee Barnard and Adam Lallana for the trip.
Striker Barnard misses out as he is serving the second game of a three-match ban for his sending-off against the Robins in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last week.
Midfielder Lallana faces around six weeks on the sidelines after undergoing an operation on his injured knee.
Full-back Frazer Richardson, the summer signing from Charlton, is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder but hopes to finally make his debut some time next month.
Defender Dan Seaborne (foot) and winger Lee Holmes (groin) remain doubtful.
Saints have lost both games since Alan Pardew was sacked last month, the 3-0 defeat by Swindon followed by Saturday's 2-0 reverse against Rochdale.
Austin powers Robins to victory
A Charlie Austin goal gave bottom side Swindon a 1-0 win over managerless Southampton.
The Saints had the better of the first half, with centre-back Aaron Martin hitting the crossbar with a header from a Jason Puncheon corner.
David Connolly also came close, his shot saved sharply by Phil Smith in the Swindon goal.
But Swindon did have their chances in the first half, Austin's low half-volley being brilliantly diverted wide by Kelvin Davis and minutes later an excellent Vincent Pericard header was ruled out for offside.
The second half started in similar fashion to that of the first half, both sides having chances but failing to convert them. Southampton hit the crossbar for a second time through Dan Harding, and six minutes later an Austin volley from six yards out put Swindon ahead.
Southampton again had a chance to score, but a Morgan Schneiderlin header was hooked off the line by Douglas.
The day ended badly for Austin, who was stretchered off with what looked like an arm injury.
