Swindon V Barnet at The County Ground : Match Preview

01 September 2017
New Swindon signings set for debuts against Barnet

Swindon boss David Flitcroft has bolstered his squad by making several loan signings.

Derby pair Timi Elsnik and Kellan Gordon have both arrived at the County Ground on season-long loans.

Midfielder Elsnik, 19, is a Slovenian youth international with one first-team appearance at Derby this term, while fellow teenager Gordon, a wide attacking player, has been a mainstay of the Derby Under-23 side.

Flitcroft has also brought in Coventry goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook, 23, on a two-year deal and Crystal Palace striker Keshi Anderson on a six-month loan.

The visitors' manager Rossi Eames is expected to make changes to the team that on Tuesday lost 4-3 at home to Wimbledon in the EFL Trophy.

He named a weakened team, but one player likely to be retained is new signing Andre Blackman, who was making his debut.

Barnet have signed Maidenhead striker Dave Tarpey and Chelsea forward Malakai Mars for undisclosed fees and both could go straight into the squad.

Knee injuries mean John Akinde, Curtis Weston and Elliott Johnson are still out, and Michael Nelson and Richard Brindley are both still struggling with ankle injuries.
