Gillingham assistant manager John Schofield writes for the KM Group every week
Every game we go into we look for three points and Swindon will be no different.
They are a capable team and it will be another big test for us but that’s what playing in the higher league brings you – sterner tests week-in, week-out.
Over the summer Swindon brought in a lot of loanees. Like any club, you want to develop players and need to get them out to play proper football at some stage where the result does matter.
These young lads have to develop and they have to go into proper football matches.

Mark Cooper was handed the management job at Swindon permanently this week but it doesn’t matter who is in charge of the opposition, we just prepare our team for what we do.
We will be doing our best to impose our game on them, regardless of who is in their dugout.
There is a bit of rivalry between the fans but when we step out there for our warm-up, we’ll be focusing on what we have been working on all week.
We’ll be looking to roll out another performance and trying to incorporate the things that we have been working on in training.
