Following the season-ending injury to Dion Conroy in September 2017, Town bolstered their defence by bringing in Matt Preston on a free transfer.

The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season following his departure from Walsall, for whom he began his career with.

Preston is a real old-fashioned central defender and he has already been compared to Town legend Shaun Taylor due to his willingness to get stuck in and put his head in where it hurts. 

The centre-back has established himself as a key figure at the heart of the Swindon defence alongside Olly Lancashire, and he's a threat at the other end too having popped up with a few crucial goals so far this season.
