Swindon Town’s injury crisis has deepened further as Saidou Khan and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy will both miss time due to fresh injuries.

Town have been without Reece Devine, Tom Clayton, Tariq Uwakwe, Pharrell Johnson, and Harrison Minturn with long-term injuries.

Khan has missed the last two games against Accrington Stanley and Doncaster Rovers with an injury that the club were attempting to diagnose the severity of, and after the two-week gap between fixtures, it has now been revealed that he will miss the remainder of the season with a hip injury.

Hepburn-Murphy has suffered a hamstring pull since Swindon last played that will keep him out for a couple of weeks, he may return before the end of the season but that is not yet clear.

Gavin Gunning said on the injuries: “Rushian Hepburn-Murphy will be out for a few weeks and Saidou Khan is out for the season.

“I know the fans have been getting on at his [Khan’s] performances, but he has been plagued with this injury for a little while and he has played on and you can see it has affected his performances massively.

“When your best midfielder is out it is always going to be a frustrating one and the team will suffer, especially Dawson [Devoy] has been the sufferer of it.

“In his first five or six games he was unbelievable higher up the pitch and then because of this we have had to play him deeper.

“We are not heavy on bodies this morning in the session, we were trying to do a bit of shape work, but it doesn’t help when you have about 13 bodies.”

There was also further bad news for Devine, who had been working his way back from the hamstring injury he suffered during pre-season, as he is now going to be out for longer.

The full-back had been slated to have a chance at making a return in the next few games, but a fresh injury has meant he will not be able to do so.

Gunning said: “Reece Devine is back out now, unfortunately, that is a frustrating one, that will be him out for another few weeks.

“It is very frustrating because he was looking very good in training, he was back in full training and looking at being involved against Notts County, but now he has a different injury.

“He might be back for the last couple of games.”
