The rules of the competition are that it has to be played at the home teams actual stadium I understand from the QF's onwards.

I've sat in the Dolman stand as a Town fan watching us before, in the League Cup when we won 3-0 at home in the first leg.
Also sat in there with Sheffield United fans in the play-offs.

Both times there were fights breaking out during the game

One of the behind the goals stands gets split right? Possibly the Atyeo, I remember arriving late at Ashton Gate, flashing my ticket at a bored attendant who promptly allowed me entry to the City side with my away ticket... made a quick retreat once I found my row and realised my seat number was on the other side of the wall.

Think they may be surprised at how many we would take - I reckon 1000 wouldnít be out of the question.

The Dolman holds just over 6000 so in theory would be big enough to accommodate both home and away fans butÖÖ..there is still a lot of rivalry between the clubs and we havenít played them at any level for a long time so you could easily see a few idiots from both sides turning up to cause trouble even if it is a under 18 game. Would Bristol City want to open up two stands for a crowd of 4000-5000 (maybe more) remains to be seen as Aud has stated they may be surprised how many from Swindon want to watch the game and 1400 travelled to Reading for a Mickey Mouse game with lots of youngsters on display.

Out of interest what was the attendance for the Man Utd game and why are people convinced lots of fans will travel to Bristol City?

There were 2,187 at the Man Utd U18s game and a fair few of those would have been there to see the opposition. The mentioned potential numbers of people going to Bristol City (a) are extremely optimistic.
