SWINDON TOWN: Ranger available for Colchester visit
NILE Ranger looks set to play a part for Swindon Town against Colchester United tomorrow after manager Mark Cooper confirmed the striker was "a million per cent" available for selection.
Ranger was found not to have breached the terms of his bail after being picked up by Northumbria Police in Newcastle on Tuesday night, having been granted leave by Town to meet with his legal counsel ahead of his upcoming trial, which begins on February 24.
The forward trained as normal with the Robins this morning and is expected to feature in Cooper's matchday squad when the U's visit the County Ground tomorrow night (kick-off 7.45pm).
Meanwhile, Cooper has revealed that midfielder Ryan Mason will return to full training on Monday after a spell out of action with a side strain.
“Ryan Mason is a lot, lot better and I would anticipate he’d be back in full training for the start of next week," Cooper told the local press this lunchtime.
“What we’re not going to do is make him train on Monday and play on Tuesday. We’ve got to make sure he’s 100 per cent fit, like we have done, and hopefully he can have a spell injury-free."
