Swindon Town Vs Barnet, Sat 24 Sep 2011

Published Add your comment

Czech striker Lukas Magera has recovered from a calf injury in time for Swindon's clash with Barnet.

However, Robins manager Paolo Di Canio will not hand the forward a starting berth.

"Lukas is still not quite there," said Di Canio. "He will be on the bench."

The Italian will need to make a change in his back four, with Alan McCormack suspended after picking up five yellow cards this season.

But centre-back Aden Flint is fit after a leg injury and Oliver Risser should also be available for selection.

Midfielder Abdul Said is a long-term casualty, while teenage playmaker Matt Clarke has been allowed to go out on loan to Oxford City for a month.

Dean Brill and Danny Senda are slight injury doubts for Barnet.

Goalkeeper Brill sustained an ankle knock during last weekend's defeat by Oxford, although he managed to finish the game, while full-back Senda had to come off after tweaking a hamstring.

Manager Lawrie Sanchez is hoping both will be fit but Liam O'Brien is on standby to start in goal while Darren Dennehy or fit-again Anwar Uddin (groin) will come into the back four if Senda is ruled out.

Striker Steve Kabba came on as a substitute against Oxford after recovering from a dead leg and could be in line for a start.

Midfielder Tommy Fraser is back in training after suffering concussion in training last month.
