Swindon's credentials as promotion candidates could receive another boost in the coming days, as Paolo Di Canio looks to add a couple of new faces to his ranks.

It has been a mixed start so far for the Italian at the Abbey Business Stadium, with a resounding win against Crewe followed by defeat to Cheltenham.

But the former West Ham striker still has a few tricks up his sleeve prior to the close of the transfer window, and expects Spanish winger Lander Gabilondo to join his Swindon revolution.

"We have agreed everything and hopefully he will sign on Tuesday," he told the club's official website.

"He has a lot of ability and is a player who is very good out wide in one-on-one situations."

The 24-year-old has been on trial with the Npower League Two club and is a graduate of the Real Sociedad academy.


Meanwhile, Di Canio is still unsure as to the future of another trialist - Wilko Risser - who has been training with the club since July.

Di Canio told BBC Wiltshire: "Maybe he isn't going to be our main striker but he could be a physical presence."

Risser, a 29-year-old striker, is the younger brother of Swindon captain Oliver Risser, with the pair both Namibia internationals.
