Michael Flynn is hopeful that he will have Rushian Hepburn-Murphy and George McEachran available as Swindon Town take on Colchester United in League Two on Tuesday.

Hepburn-Murphy was absent from the squad that was defeated 7-4 by Aldershot Town after “he slipped in training and hurt his hip”, further limiting Swindon’s forward options after Jake Young was denied permission to feature in the competition by his parent club Bradford City.

However, Flynn believes that he will have both attackers back in contention to play at the JobServe Community Stadium tomorrow night, as well as McEachran, who came off during the first half on Saturday.

He said: “We have got Jake Young back and hopefully Rushian.

“George had to come off as he got hit off the ball, which was missed, so he was complaining about his neck.

“We have tested him, and he is moving a lot better today, and he should be okay for tomorrow.”

However, Flynn was less optimistic about getting back his other injured players in the near future: Benn Ward, Jake Cain, and Tariq Uwakwe.

He said: “They are all injured for the foreseeable future. Jake Cain is probably the one who will return quicker than the others.”
