INJURY UPDATE: Dunne Back In Training

The Latest On Dunne, Goddard and Knoyle Ahead Of Saturday

14 September 2017

Swindon Town have been handed a boost ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League Two clash against Stevenage with James Dunne back in training.

The hard-hitting midfielder missed the 1-0 defeat to Notts County on Tuesday evening due to illness. 

However, he was back in the thick of the action during training earlier today and he could be in contention to feature at The County Ground on Saturday (3pm Kick-Off).

"James Dunne trained today and we're going to study his data later," Dave Flitcroft told members of the local press at his pre-Stevenage Press Conference. 

"He was back to himself but he probably wasn't 100%. He's rehydrated and he's got some food into him and he's done a good session today."

Flitcroft also provided updates on John Goddard and Kyle Knoyle with the pair making good progress on their respective road to recoveries.

"Johnny Goddard was on the grass with more ball contact today and he was doing left and right take-offs," Flitcroft added.

"James Dunne trained today, he's back to himself and he had a good session today."

"He's not in contact with the rest of the group yet but he's certainly doing more work on the grass.

"Kyle Knoyle has come through his first full contact session today and he looks good. He's obviously spent a lot of time in the gym, a lot of time running and a lot of non-contact because of the injury.

"He's come through it today and I'm delighted with his progress.

"He's not available for Saturday but we are looking at getting a couple of reserve games in over the next couple of weeks behind-closed-doors and we've spoken to quite a few local teams to try and get that fixed up.

"We're working on that at the moment to make sure we've got players ready so that when they do come in they are available and ready to go when that need arises."

And Town have no other fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday's home clash against Stevenage.

"Everyone else is excellent," Flitcroft concluded.
