Swindon manager Danny Wilson is expected to keep faith with the same players that overcame Walsall for the visit of leaders Huddersfield.

After failing to win any of their first five matches this season, the Robins' 2-1 success at the Banks's Stadium clinched back-to-back victories and took their unbeaten run to four as they continue to turn the corner.

Vincent Pericard will lead the attack again having opened his league account against the Saddlers, with Thomas Dossevi looking to hold off the threat of David Ball to start alongside him.

Alan O'Brien is available again after missing out recently with a back problem but he is only likely to make the bench.

Striker Charlie Austin remains sidelined with his shoulder injury, while midfielder Simon Ferry (ankle) will again have to watch from the stands but should be okay for Tuesday's home clash against Plymouth.

Huddersfield defender Graham Carey faces a late fitness test ahead of the showdown at the County Ground.

The on-loan Celtic player was stretchered off in last week's win over Yeovil with a bruised knee but has not been ruled out.

Otherwise, manager Lee Clark has no new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make many changes as his side bid to maintain top spot.

Defenders Nathan and Tom Clarke remain sidelined with respective knee injuries, although the former is expected back in full training soon, and left-back Gary Naysmith is still sidelined due to a foot injury.

Clark faces several selection dilemmas as Joey Gudjonsson, Anthony Pilkington, Jordan Rhodes and Lee Croft, all named on the bench last week, are pushing for a place in the starting line-up.
