Swansea City make the short trip to Whaddon Road tomorrow as Kenny Jackett's side take on Cheltenham Town.
We'll need to do a lot better this time around after Ward's side beat us 2-1 at the Liberty Stadium in the first game of the season.
Tickets for the trip were sold out last week as 1,800 fans will provide some strong vocal support tomorrow.
Kenny Jackett: 'We are very close to it (promotion), and now we need to stamp our authority on the League.
'We need to put a good run together to capitalise on our position. At the moment we are taking two steps forward and one back and we need to push on.
'It's a great opportunity for us to do that this month.''
Kristian O'Leary: ''They are not far short of being a very good team,''
''When I was there we won two and drew one of our five games and I could see that Cheltenham were a decent side.
''They have two big, strong centre-forwards in Damian Spencer and Kayode Odejayi who are a handful.''
Scott Brown is the only fresh injury worry fro boss John Ward since his side's 1-0 win over high-flyers Bristol City.
He broke his leg during the game so he'll definately miss the game.
Jamie Victory and Mickey Bell are also sidelined.
Odejayi is the Robins' top scorer with 10 goals so far this season in all competitions.
Kevin Austin is available again after serving a one-match suspension while midfielder Kristian O'Leary also returns after a ban.
He looks set to start on the bench against a side he spent a month on loan at a few months ago.
Tommy Williams is out injured with hernia trouble which will mean Painter will start at left back.
Alan Tate could return to the defence as Richard Duffy serves a one-match suspension after picking up 5 bookings this season.
Ian Craney looks set to return to the starting line-up alongside Pratley in midfield after missing last weekend's FA Cup match as he was cup-tied.
Trundle was dropped last week and although Jackett will probably put him back in the starting line-up, I think Abbott deserves his chance. Hopefully he'll feature during the game as he has a good eye for goal.
Cheltenham currently sit in the relegation zone so they'll be battling tomorrow for some points.
In the last 7 games against Cheltenham, Swansea have won 3, lost 1 and drawn 3.
Cheltenham are unbeaten in their last 3 games, drawing against Gillingham and Scunthorpe and beating Bristol City.
Lee Mason (Lancashire). This season stats: 21 Games, 51 Yellows, 3 Reds.
Cheltenham will be a bit more confident after beating Bristol City 1-0 but the Swans should be well up for winning this one as we to go on a good run to gain promotion. 2-1 Swans.
