Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 2 and Sky Sports 2 HD. Radio commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Swindon come into this game after their 3-2 win over Bristol City during their last League One fixture. Aden Flint and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas scored for the visitors, which was cancelled by Nicholas Ajose's two goals in the first half.

However, Nile Ranger's strike in the closing moments of the game saw the Robins seal all three points over their rivals. Mark Cooper replaced Kevin MacDonald at the County Ground last month and has lost one game in their last five matches.

Swindon are unbeaten at home since February and they would be looking to continue their brilliant run against Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea enter this game after finding a win against their London rivals Fulham. The Blues won the tie 2-0, with goals from Oscar and John Obi Mikel's second half goals giving the Europa League winners their first win the five games played in all competitions.

Jose Mourinho would be hoping for a result against the League One side as he is looking to take Chelsea to the next stage of the Capital One Cup. The former Real Madrid manager is likely to make changes to his squad after dropping David Luiz, Juan Mata and Fernando Torres from the starting lineup during the tie against Fulham.

Chelsea face Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League fixture later this weekend. The Portuguese tactician would be looking for nothing less than a win when his side take on Swindow on Tuesday evening.

What Managers Say

Mark Cooper: "It's another fantastic test for the players. It's great for the club, I'm sure it will be a full house. It will be all about the players and the club and the fans. We'll prepare the best we can but we'll have to prepare to play against some of the best players in the world."

Steve Holland (Ass Coach, Chelsea): "If you prioritise the four trophies we have a chance of winning, I'm not going to pretend that this competition is ahead of the Champions League, but Jose wants to win everything. That hasn't changed. That will be the situation again this time round."
