PHIL Brown says his Swindon Town players have been fully briefed on what to expect from Harry Kewell’s Notts County this afternoon.

Swindon travel to Meadow Lane in desperate need of a result after losing 2-0 to struggling Cambridge United at the Energy Check County Ground on Tuesday night.

Not only that, Brown’s troops are now in the midst of a barren run in front of goal, with just one league goal in six games.

Notts County are currently in a dip of their own, they sit 22nd in the table and have lost their last two fixtures.

Kevin Nolan was replaced as manager by former Leeds United star Kewell just under four weeks ago, as he opted to leave Crawley Town.

Town have already faced a Kewell side this season, they drew 2-2 with Crawley earlrier this season and looking ahead to the game, Brown says he knows what to expect from the Australian a second time around.

“I think anytime you witness a Harry Kewell team, you would say the DNA is a passing football team,” he said.

“He likes pace and quality in his side, but don’t we all. He does play open and expansive football and we all want to play that style of football if we are winning.

“He got himself a move to a bigger club from Crawley, without being disrespectful, and he’s found himself losing the last three.

“Whether that is down to his method or his message to the players, I don’t know, I just know what I am going to face.

“The players will be well versed in what they are going to face and we will be very good without the ball, now I want them to be goo with it.”

Despite the disappointing loss during the week, Brown says his approach to this weekend’s clash will not differ from their game against the U’s.

The only improvement he would like to see from four days ago is an increase in concentration from his side as they set up to frustrate their hosts.

“We have to go there and frustrate them like w have been frustrated at the County Ground,” he said.

“The game plan won’t be any different to what it was on Tuesday, apart from we won’t be giving away silly goals.

“When that first goal does go in, that will lift the pressure, if there is any, that the players are playing under.

“As far as I’m concerned I carry on with my message, this is not a difficult period for me.”
