NATHAN Thompson is unlikely to play a part in tomorrow’s League One clash with Wolves after injuring his groin during Swindon Town’s weekend defeat to MK Dons.

The right-back was substituted late in the second half of the clash at the County Ground and was due to be assessed by Town’s medical team over the weekend, though manager Mark Cooper does not expect him to be available for the game against the table-toppers.

As a result, the Robins may well postpone the surgery Jay McEveley requires to shave a piece of bone in his knee so that the defender can be available for several important matches in the coming weeks.

Of Thompson, Cooper said: “He’s tweaked his groin a little bit so I’d think he’ll be a doubt for Tuesday.

“Jay needs the operation and with Nathan maybe missing out now we’ll probably need Jay.

“We’ll speak on a daily basis and see how his knee is.”

Have to say I think Nathan has gone backwards under Coopers way of playing. Add to that he hasn't been fully fit for most of the season either. Our season is over now, so no need to rush him back, give him a chance to fully recover and give Barcham his chance to show what he can do.

Rest him on Tuesday and get him back for Saturday. If we complete the double over them, I for one will be happy.
