Swindon Town will host Manchester City in an FA Cup tie at a sold-out County Ground on Friday evening.

Local fans are excited to have the Premier League champions in town with tickets selling out in hours. It’s not expected that Pep Guardiola will be bringing his full first team but some stars may feature and supporters are looking to get a glimpse of a top-flight player at the League Two side.

Fans will also be hoping for a miraculous win but away supporters aren’t happy with the travel arrangements. It’s been reported the last train back to Manchester from Swindon leaves 20 minutes before kick-off.

The general secretary of the Manchester City official supporters club, Kevin Parker, told the Manchester Evening News: “We’re not the last consideration, there’s no consideration given to football supporters...

“If a supporter wants to go to the game, at the end of the day he or she will find one way or another to get there. Ultimately, those who do go who would normally have travelled by train will still go, but at a greater expense than it should have been.”

The match will kick-off at 8pm on Friday 7 January at the County Ground.
