SWINDON Town head coach Luke Williams will wait for results from a scan before making a decision on whether central defender Dion Conroy will feature against AFC Wimbledon on Friday.

The 21-year-old, who has started the last three outings for Town, pulled up late in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Milton Keynes Dons with a hamstring problem.

At the time, Williams was not sure whether it was a tear or a nerve issue but having not suffered any ill-effects in the subsequent 48 hours, it appears to be the latter.

The club sent Conroy for a scan but were comfortable enough to let the former Chelsea defender participate in training this week.

“There’s always a worry because he pulled up so much in the game,” said Williams.

“He felt something in the warm-up but he came through and felt something right towards the end and of course, he was removed.

“Within 48 hours, he felt very, very good.

“For precaution, we got a scan and we’re just waiting for the results now.

“He trained very well. Training was quite intense and there didn’t seem to be a reaction.

“The player was reporting no symptoms at all so we said: ‘OK, let’s train and wait for the results.’ If anything in there is untoward then, we can take a view after that.”


Williams reported a clean bill of health at the club, other than Conroy’s scan, and has plans in place should the results rule the defender out of Good Friday’s clash at the County Ground.

“There is always something in my mind if needs be but we have got very good central defenders that can come in,” he added.

“There might have to be some reshuffling and things like that but we brought players in during January for that reason.”
