Jonny Williams will be available for selection for Swindon Town's local derby clash against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

It is a big day for the Reds who take on local rivals The Gas at The Memorial Stadium tomorrow - 3pm Kick-Off - and they have been handed a big boost prior to the game.

Welsh International Jonny Williams, who missed last week's 0-0 draw with Colchester United due to concussion, is fully fit and will be able to play tomorrow.

Town Head Coach Ben Garner also gave updates on other members of his squad with the Gaffer having plenty of options at his disposal.

"We've had a good week and everyone is fit and back in the fold," Garner told the local media at his pre-match press conference earlier today.

"It has been a full week of training for Harry McKirdy, which is great, so we have a full squad to choose from.

"Anthony Grant has been much better this week and I think it took him a week last week to get back up to speed.

"Jordan Lyden is improving constantly and Harry McKirdy has trained very well this week and he was only out a couple of weeks so, fitness wise, no concerns with him.

"It was just offloading that groin for a little bit, that quad and just allowing him time to get back to training, so all positive news on that front.

"Jonny Williams is fine.

"He had to fulfil the concussion protocols and I won't go into it and bore you, but there is certain criteria each day in terms of how long you can train for and at what tempo and intensity and when you can come back into contact, but he's ticked all of those boxes.

"He trained a full contact session on Thursday and he'll do the same again today, so he's recovered fine and we've gone through the protocol as it should be done."
