SWINDON Town’s form means tomorrow’s game would be huge whoever they were playing.

That’s the view of Arsenal loanee Matt Smith ahead of the derby clash with Oxford United.

Neither side have made a good start to the campaign, but the U’s will go into the game with a spring in their step after beating MK Dons 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Elsewhere, the Robins were going down 2-1 at North-ampton Town, for what was their fifth successive defeat in all competitions.

Smith, who has featured in age groups clashes between the Gunners and Tottenham, is confident the derby is just what the Robins need.

He told the Swindon Advertiser: “A couple of the boys have been telling me about it, so I do know it is a massive game.

“We’ve got to bounce back from Tuesday, and hopefully we’ll do well and get the win.

“It’s not just a massive game because of the rivalry, it’s a massive game because we’ve got to turn our form around.

“We’ve lost a few on the bounce now, but the rivalry will drive us on, everyone will be up for it and I’m sure we will get the win.”

Boss Richie Wellens said: “I don’t need to motivate them – it’s probably the biggest game of the season.”
