Swindon v Chesterfield Sun 14:00
Although the two sides may be in different tiers of the English leagues, the matchup of Chesterfield and Swindon Town will still prove to be a tight encounter as both sides are similar odds with Paddy Power when they meet in the final of this season’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
Swindon currently head the League Two table while Chesterfield dwindle at the foot of League One and seem the most likely candidates to face the drop from the division come season’s end.
Chesterfield are without a win in their last four outings but have overcome difficult opposition on their route to the final of this year’s competition.
John Sheridan’s side most recently overcame Oldham Athletic in both legs of the Northern final but before that ran out as victors over Preston North End.
Swindon my have had a somewhat easier ticket to the final, beating Barnet and Wimbledon on their way but with eight wins in their last ten outings, The Robins will be considerable opposition, even when considering their one league deficit.
That being said, Paolo Di Canio’s side could be without captain Paul Caddis this weekend with the skipper set to undergo a late fitness test before the match.
The former Scotland Under-21 international has been struggling with an ankle injury for the past month and it’s thought that the 23 year-old will gain a place on the bench at best.
John Bostock and Jay McEveley could make their Wembley debuts shortly after they completed loan moves to Swindon.
On the other hand, Sheridan will have his entire squad to chose from with no major injuries to worry about but Nicky Ajose, Neal Trotman and Liam Ridehalgh will all be cup-tied.
The Wembley final promises to be an exciting fixture and although the two clubs have campaigns that can only be described as opposite from one another, League One Chesterfield will strive to gain silverware and make the best of an otherwise disappointing season when they take on League Two Swindon on Sunday.
