One being assessed ahead of Crawley

Team News ahead of tonight

1 February 2022

Swindon Town only have one slight concern ahead of tonight's EFL Sky Bet League Two clash against Crawley Town at The County Ground.

The Reds are in action at SN1 later - 7:45pm Kick-Off - and Head Coach Ben Garner provided a fitness update at his pre-match press conference.

"Like I said last week, both Jack Payne and Mathieu Baudry are progressing well and Mathieu is back into team training," Garner said.

"We just need to get him enough training where we are comfortable he can go in and play or come off the bench.

"Jack Payne should come into team training from Thursday this week, which is great.

"Fitness wise in terms of physical condition, he's fantastic but it is just making sure that knee is fully healed and there is no point taking a risk now with all the work he's done.

"One thing I can guarantee is that he will come back in better shape physically than what he was when he went out of the team.

"We have got one more that we are assessing. Other than that, everyone is good and we've got a couple of new additions coming into the group which is great.

"Just one to assess and everyone else is good.

"Both Louie Barry and Brandon Cooper will come into the squad today and they will strengthen us and give us more competition and depth and a few decisions for me to make, which is exactly what we want."
