Jonte Smith led the line alongside match winner Alex Addai in Tuesday night's FA Cup first round replay win over Swindon Town.

With Luke Varney out injured, and Gavin Reilly facing a race for fitness, the Bermuda international forward could be in line again to start in the forward department when Colchester United are the visitors at the weekend.

Seven of his ten appearances so far have been as a substitute and another potential start on Saturday would be his first in a League Two game for the Robins so far - with Reuben Reid and George Lloyd also options in attack.

"We want to improve every game and keep trying to learn," Smith said ahead of Saturday. "Obviously three points would be great and that's what we try to do every single game we go into. That's the plan.

"It could be a tight game. We've had some very good results at home and we want to continue that run, continue to play well in front of the fans and give it our all."

Watch the full interview with Smith looking back on Tuesday's win, playing up front with Alex, and discussing his Bermuda side's recent showing against Mexico.
