Thanks Heather. A couple of questions:

Who is Simpson?
Why is Monthe playing? I thought he had one more game to miss due to his red card.

Jordan Simpson. Been with us all season.
Manny can play tonight as his ban does not include the Checkatrade trophy.

Simpson's father was a great player for Swindon.

Strong looking team. I hope they are motivated too. I decided to do Shortwood instead so I guess I hope they show more commitment than I did.

I suppose the logic may be that we have some momentum and need to maintain it. Hope so

I know some suspensions don't always apply across different governing bodies IE European comps and Domestic comps

But this seems strange, he got the Red in an EFL league game the suspension applied to an FA game as well as an EFL League game and the Checkatrade trophy is an EFL administered comp.

It's a standalone competition so disciplinary indiscretions do not spill over to other matches.

Don't think so Danny Wright was sent off in 1 of these games and still played in the league the next game.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
