Swindon boss Paolo di Canio has suggested that, on current form, the U's are going into tomorrow's game with the Robins as the better side, stating that a draw would be a 'fantastic result' for his side.
Following a run of nine successive defeats, Joe Dunne's men go into the game brimming with confidence after two back-to-back wins to stop the rot; a 2-0 win over Walsall was followed up by a 3-2 win at Portsmouth on Saturday.
For Swindon, tomorrow night's opposition, they've had two draws (0-0 and 1-1) away to both Leyton Orient and Crawley, respectively. Di Canio insists that their fourth-placed position means nothing going into the game.
'Tomorrow will be difficult as it will be on a pitch where you can't play football and we'll be playing a side who, at the moment, are better than us,' he told the club's official website.
'They've won two from two and we've drawn two from two, they've had five goals scored and two conceded against us, with one goal scored and one goal conceded.
'It isn't about the league table and saying it's fourth versus sixth from bottom; current results say we're going to play a side who are doing better than us, so I hope we can get a draw tomorrow.'
The U's have been buoyed by the attacking form of players such as Freddie Sears, George Porter and Gavin Massey in recent weeks, as well as the numerous additions that have come into the side over January.
Jabo Ibehre, Sam Walker, David Wright and Billy Clifford are all amongst those new arrivals, and Di Canio points to these players as part of the U's upturn in fortunes.
'They have every reason to get something from the game,' he continued. 'Their confidence is up, they've brought in a few new players and some are back who had been out for a few weeks like [Freddie] Sears.
'Now they're back and you can see their positive effect; they have quality as we saw here at the County Ground when we lost against them.
'Individually, these teams have players who have played in the Premiership and the Championship, and tomorrow will be very difficult - a draw would be a fantastic result.'
