Excitement builds as fans begin journey to Wembley
8:33am Sunday 25th March 2012 in Swindon
THERE is an air of excitement in the town this morning as thousands of football fans head to Wembley.
While the sun was still rising, a sea of red and white could be seen along County Road as fans made their way to the ground.
Decked out in red and white scarves, shirts, wigs and hats, supporters waved banners, blew horns and whistles ahead of Town's clash with Chesterfield this afternoon.
The majority of fans were optimistic that Town would claim victory, with many predicting a 3-1 final score.
Des and Jackie Jackson from Redhouse were among the fans travelling by coach from the County Ground.
Des said: "I'm feeling a bit apprehensive because it is a one off game and anything can happen, but I still think the final score will be 3-1. That is what I am hoping for anyway.
"It's going to be a great day with great atmosphere."
